It seems like I failed to avoid the shoes that hurt like nasty paper cuts. I still believe the golden emblem on the soles of my Prada’s is more sexy than the red soles on these, but this dove grey patent just had me at hello.

Shoes, Christian Louboutin (via SMETS).

  1. I’ve never been tempted to buy a pair of Loubies; I tried some on once while interning at a magazine in New York and I’d rather go through child birth than wear a pair for a day. SO painful! Best of luck with these ;)


  2. I never got the whole Louboutin thing. Ok, the red sole is sexy but can look tacky very easily. The Prada however, with the golden plaque, look good with everything

  3. Oh they are so lovely… it’s hard to believe something that beautiful could be so painful! (And don’t feel bad; every woman has a couple of pairs of shoes that are gorgeous but hurt like hell).

  4. You hit the nail on the head. There is a reason I only own one pair, and it’s not cost. They are so freaking uncomfortable! Even professionally stretched and sized perfectly. Even with inserts. Even not on your feet they are uncomfortable, lol. BUT, even with all that, they are still the sexiest stilettos I own. (The heel on mine is veryyyyyy thin).
