Christian Louboutin is apparently having a serious love affair with spikes. They are showing up on so many of his designs, I'm beginning to wonder if this phase may very well be a keeper for life.
These flats from the 2010 Resort collection are very "Bad Ballerina". They're made especially for the innovative, fashion forward lady who can appreciate the dainty/punk rock look and afford to purchase this trend. Seriously, they are just confusing enough to be interesting...an oxymoron if I've even seen one in a shoe. But in a cool, fashionable way.
Louboutin has also fashioned an open toe heel in the same vein of a charming Cinderella Glass Slipper but of course with more edge. I'm not the biggest fan of the clear, plastic look especially not in a heel but these are quite cute. I give them two thumbs up! It's so hard to find a really cute silver shoe and if you want something outside of the norm...these are just the ticket.
Now let's get down and dirty. Here's a version sent to me by a supportive fellow blogger. As interesting as they are, they could really just be down right dangerous. Maybe strutting with a sign that says "No tailgating" would be appropriate for these spiked stilettos. I'm thinking it would be best NOT to wear them for a night out clubbing because I'm almost positive they'll be considered a weapon thus denying you entry for sure. AND if you're thinking about jet setting in them, Forghetaboutit! Attempting to get past homeland security at the airport would be a monumental fail!
