“I will never buy a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, I’ll never be able to walk in them.” she says….
That was until I hit the Harrods sale and yes it happened. I popped my Christian Louboutin cherry and purchased my first pair of red-soled heels!
I know what you’re thinking: Rhea, you bought yourself another pair of shoes? – What can I say? They were Louboutins and they were on sale. Do I really need to explain myself any further?
As much as I love shoes, when it comes to heels I will always prioritise my comfort over everything. In my experience, I have never come across a pair of Louboutins that weren’t raised a million inches off the ground by a heel that resembled a toothpick. When I see people shopping in them, I instantly want to give them a round of applause because I know I wouldn’t even dream of it.
As pretty as they are to look at, I could never really convince myself that I needed them. Clearly I wasn’t looking properly because to my surprise, I stumbled upon a pair that I could actually walk in. The ones that I found have a heel that I won’t potentially fall to my death in and they were also reasonably priced. In all honesty, they were more than reasonably priced. Let’s just say it would’ve been rude of me not to purchase them.
I always told myself that if I were to ever make a purchase I would either buy a pair of black or nude heels. That way I could easily match them with anything in my closet. It was actually my sister who found these shoes. When they didn’t have them in her size, I tested my luck and well you know how the story ends (sorry sis!). I don’t think she was too happy but alas I came home with new shoes to add to my ever-growing collection.
According to the box, the name of this style of shoe is the:
London B 100 Nappa Shiny/ Cudio Heel
I got these in a size 4.5 (UK)/ 37.5 (EU) and they were true to size for me but I’ve often found this to be the case with Italian made shoes.
They’re simple, elegant and something that I can realistically last more than 10 minutes in. Some of you might be thinking that they’re plain and boring. I’ll admit they had a pretty good selection of shoes in various colours and even some with the popular Louboutin studs/spikes design. Realistically you can’t go wrong with a pair of classic black heels. When you’re splurging on shoes the last thing you want is to come home with buyer’s regret. We’ve all experienced it. It’s not pretty!
Although they’re quite high, they’re a lot more comfortable than they might look. The block heel definitely stole me over because I don’t have to worry about potentially face planting into the pavement when I go out. Although it has never happened before I’ve ashamedly come pretty close.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get a lot of use of out them. I feel as though I could dress them up and down with different outfits. Either that or I’ll never wear them because I don’t ever want to ruin the red soles! Does anyone else have this dilemma?
Please leave me a comment below of any good sole protectors, if you’ve come across any! I’d really appreciate it.
