So there was this backlash against logo-mania a few years back, when we realized that you buy name brands for quality and good design, not so everyone and their mommas know you shop in the land of the brown monogram. And then Mr Christian Louboutin found a way to make really nice shoes and embellish them with a signature that did the equivalent of the monogram logo, without the associated tackiness. And for a while that was fabulous, until the company started suing copycats, and people (read: me) started weirding out about the cachet of the red sole. I mean, it's cool and sharp and all, but it's the actual Louboutin shoes that we really care about.
Anyway, now the footwear maestro has found a new way to scream "look at me, me, me!" Sex always did sell. Although, ironically, if you think about these shoes, the best way to spell "sex" is to keep your legs together. Which is a little bit counterintuitive, if you ask me.
Get them at Christian Louboutin, 7 On Lan Street.
