Sebastian ‘Porpora’ red patent stilettos with platform sole

red stiletto shoes

Sebastian ‘Porpora’ court shoes, £398

I think “vampy” is probably the best word to describe these shoes, don’t you?

Now, I know what you’re thinking. There can be a very thin line between “vampy” and “trampy” (Oh, don’t look at me like that, you know it’s true…), and all too often, a red stiletto – especially one with such a slim, high heel – can stray too far across that line. I think the reason these ones don’t is because of the colour: a very bright red would be just a little too much on a shoe this sexy, but this darker, more sophisticated shade of red will be much easier to wear.

Unfortunately I can’t promise those heels will be anything like “easy” to wear: they’re 5.9″ high, and are a true stiletto – very thin, and rather dangerous looking. Thankfully, they’re matched with a high platform, so at least you won’t feel like you’re almost 6″ higher than usual. Or that’s the theory, anyway…
