This is my latest splurge. I had my eyes on them the first time I saw them on the Christian Louboutin blog, and I had my names on waited list at the only two stores in the U.S that have these beauties. Luckily I was able to get them in my size, they run a bit big, I am usually 35 or sometime 35.5 in most CL shoes, but for this one I had to go down half a size to 34.5. They are not the most comfortable pair of shoes in my shoes closet, but I don't mind that at all because since when sexy is comfy? No shoes that are 5 inches heels will last you for hours and hours without hurting your feet, these are definitely the shoes that required valet parking if you go out in them:). So don't expect to be wearing them and dance in them all night long:) If you are looking for that then these are not the ones for you:).
