If you’re a shoe addict you probably are familiar with the “L”” word. They’re ultra sexy, ultra expensive and peeking into the store last week, selling like crazy. Customer’s Converses were strewn on the floor and feet were getting squeezed into spikey sleek studded models.


With names like Bianca Watersnake, Rolling Spikes Veau Velours, Lady Daf Velours, Malabar Hill Pony, Spike Wars Vernis, Lady Peep Vernis, Pigalle Spikes Vernis, Lady Highness Kid who can resist? Christian Louboutin’s red-bottom color code is registered as Pantone 18-1663 TPX. His single biggest client is Danielle Steel, who is reputed to own over 6,000 pairs and is known to have purchased up 80 pairs at a time when shopping at his stores.

Louboutins can sell from $495 and up, with crystal-encrusted pair costing $6,000. I’m sticking to walking shoes right now. This practical little numbershoes3 is on my wish list.
