She Said “Sexiest Shoe”

As if we shoe lovers needed any convincing of the brand’s sex status, Christian Louboutin has once again created a masterpiece which has earned the title of ‘Sexiest Shoe‘.

In Footwear News and Saks Fifth Avenue’s third annual competition, online voters chose Christian Louboutin as their Sexiest Shoe. The shoe, in particular? These red Pigalle 100 spiked patent-leather pumps.

Finalists included Manolo Blahnik, Christian Dior, Nicholas Kirkwood, Gucci, Tabitha Simmons, and more. Second place went to a pair of burgundy Stuart Weitzman pumps with a metallic stiletto, third went to a pair of black suede sandals by Jimmy Choo, and number four went to a pair of studded over the knee boots by B Brian Atwood.

She Said “Lady Max”

When it comes to glamourous and womanly colour combinations, gold and red is definitely up there.

That’s why these Christian Louboutin metallic leather sandals have been given, in my opinion, the perfect name: Lady Max. This tough, chic shoe has a heel that is thinner than its own spike embellishments. A crystal-embellished challenge if I’ve ever seen one.

She Said “To The Max”

When us ladies “think pink”, we don’t necessarily dream up images of spikes.

But, if this spot from Vogue Japan’s May 2012 issue is anything to go by, it’s not such a bad thought to have. These Max Kibardin stilettos are something else. While model Saskia de Brauw can stun even while shoeless, these spikes and studs take her Lori Goldstein-styled look to a whole new level.

She Said “Lorissa”

OK, I’ve been a little bit overwhelmed with Britney Spears‘ wardrobe choices from her latest video. I have spent the last two hours trying to find the perfect studded heels.

Thank you, Mrs. & Mrs. Edelman, for Sam Edelman. His denim, studded “Lorissa” heels are perfect. The fact that the stud chaos is kept to the heel cup is wonderful. 4 1/2 inches of genius right there, girls and dolls.

She Said “Spikette”

It’s always fun to use your heels to induce fear in your nearest and dearest.

I mean, these stilettos are basically weapons (and I love it). Ruthie Davis created some very sexy shoes named “Spike” for Autumn/Winter 2010, and these “Spikettes” are her spin-off for Spring/Summer 2011. They are a double-platform shoetie with spikes and Swarovski crystals. Unlike their ‘mother shoe’ there is no back zipper but they have the same gummy calfskin leather. Much better.
