These aren't just any heels people! Resting it's entire fashion identity on what is underneath the shoes rather than on top. A Christian Lou Bouten pair of heels is a 'bad ass' piece of footwear in any language.
So when I was presented with a pair of shiny black 6" Lou Bouten heels with the question -
" How would you frame these?" My immediate thought was - " Why would You?!"
As the story unfolded I could see these heels were certainly meant for more than just walking or strutting or gracefully gliding across a ballroom floor. The, already lofty Lady who purchased them online wearing them for only 35 minutes before realising they just did not fit - then had to face the disappointment of not being able to return them as the precious and highly revered shiny Red under sole was now 'Used'. You'd think after investing a packet on these heels, you'd chalk it up to experience. Not so! Another identical pair was purchased though a little bigger. Greater care was taken in the trial 'walk' this time but they were also found an uncomfortable fit. Returning them in an unblemished state would be successful. They were repacked in their box and stored underneath the desk of the twice thwarted wearer where, not long after, the office space was flooded, soiling the second pair of Lou Boutins!
The result you see is befitting of heel Royalty. If you can't wear these pieces of Art, then show it in all it's splendour and grace- on your wall and not on the floor!!!
