Christian Louboutin = Still scary

Christianlouboutinshoes

Remember those scary fish shoes Christian Louboutin made a while back? I’m guessing he couldn’t bite our feet off with those, so he decided to try and maim us some other way: enter the ‘Ariela leather boots’, which are covered in lots of tiny, spiky studs. Now, not being exactly blessed in the "gracefulness" department (i.e., I’m clumsy), I know I’d seriously injure myself – or someone else – within a few minutes of getting these on my feet. And if I didn’t injure someone, I’d at least do some serious damage to my clothes. Whaddya reckon? £595 to have really, really hard-ass looking feet: are you up for it?

    Gawd – I ladder my tights when I snag ’em off the opposite boot’s zip! I’d have to channel a whole nasty retro rock’n’roll vibe to pull off the multi-laddered tights look that these would necessitate!
    Oh, and also – urgh!

    Gosh, how many times I have scratched and itch on my leg with the other foot… one little mosquito bite and I would end up in the ER!

    I was flicking through October’s Harper’s Bazaar last night and spotted these in a feature – Polly Vernon was raving about how they channeled the Desperately Seeking Susan vibe. I’m not convinced that that is an 80s look I’d care to revisit, personally, but each to their own, I suppose!
