Christian Louboutin’s suede peep toes – a fringe too far?

Louboutin-fringed-shoes

OK, Mr Louboutin, we're going to need to ask you to step away from the fringes, please. That's right, keep your hands where we can see them, nice and slow…

Of course, we know fringes have been big lately, and we also know a lot of you like them, but when fringes attack a perfectly nice peep toe and leave it looking like this, we feel we have to act. We didn't like it when Christian Louboutin did this to knee "boots" (we use the word "boots" in its loosest possible sense there), and we still don't like it now the same fate has been visited upon peep toe pumps.

Do you like it? Are your ankles just crying out for some fringing, or do you prefer them as they are, thanks very much? (If you do like these, they're $1095 from Neiman Marcus.)

    I’d be swooning if there were no fringe…why? Why? Why?

    Looks like fetlocks! And would be really annoying to have that tickling your ankles.

    I’d spend the day looking down at my ankles, convinced there were ants crawling on them.

    They should do them in brown, to match yesterday’s swimsuit…

    I guess the Clydesdale look is really in?…

    My ankles could do with that lovely belt detail, but the fringe is kind of worn and tragic. I get it, but I just don’t think there’s a true right way to do it on footwear.

    I’m from Argentina and every single shop here is filled with those things, why??
    ankles are cute, sexy, well, most ankles.,, why on earth would you hide them in thaat sort of thing?
    I wish fringes wouldn’t exist, neither the people capable to buy them, or wear them, or make them.. oh wait, I love Christian Louboutin, he can live.
