Christian Louboutin Toboggan Specchio, £485
Every time I think I’ve found my all-time favourite pair of Louboutins, another pair comes along to prove me wrong.
A couple of months ago, for instance, I was all about the So Kates. Then the srping collection was released, and it was full of all that nautical goodness that’s so utterly irresistible to me. And now there’s Toboggan Specchio – a curvy gold sandal that seems to have “Shoeperwoman, please buy me!” stamped all over it. I mean, seriously, just check out those curves! Has there ever been a more perfectly-shaped sandal? I doubt it. If there is, though, I honestly can’t WAIT to see it…
These have a 4″ heel, so although they’re high by most standards, they’re actually fairly reasonable by Christian Louboutin standards. They have a half-d’orsay shape and an open toe, and are in a gorgeous, go-with-everything gold, so you’ll never have to worry about not having anything to wear with them. (Not that you’d worry about that anyway, because if you’re anything like me, you’d be finding excuses to wear these aaaaalll the time, and with everything. Even to the supermarket, if that’s what it took to get them worn.)
Mostly, though, these are all about the curves. Well, what more do you need?
I have never seen a pair of shoes I need more than these. Ever.
