Christian Louboutin 'Pina Spike' pumps


So, I guess spikes will  be a mainstay in our shoe racks in a couple of more years. Ever since Louboutin used spikes to add edge and flare to shoes, almost every known shoe designer earth managed to add one on their own. There are a few, though, who became successful at it, while some went overboard and who knows what happened to their designs.

Anyway, if Louboutin is the king of spikes... then, he really is the king of spikes. What I like about 'Pina Spike' is the color blocking of black and gold patent leather and the ubiquitous red sole. Of course, the ever sexy ankle strap is there to emphasize that the shoe is not for the faint of heart. Its heel measures 120mm so you better not stand or walk for a long time wearing it.

This is available at netaporter.com for $1,045.

Sophia Webster 'Karlie' metallic leather pumps


I feel happy looking at these Sophia Webster "Karlie" pumps. Maybe it's because of the metallic polka dots or the striped platform. I really don't know, but, this is one pair I'd love to wear whenever I feel down.

It has a 4-inch covered heel and 1-inch platform. Its upper is made of leather. It now sells for $250, previously $490 but there are only two sizes left--36 and 40. Better hurry and click on theoutnet.com before stocks run out.

Wear it with these:

Charlotte Russe side bow pumps


It's nice to see nude colored pumps with a little attitude, like this Charlotte Russe pump with a cute side bow. It has a heel height of 5.24 inches and a platform of 1.25 inches. Its upper is made of faux nubuck leather. It sells for $35.99 at the brand's official website but you can have it for only $25 if you follow a simple step.

Jimmy Choo 'Tucan' mesh and suede pumps


The last time I saw huge bows on shoes was seven years or so when I first laid eyes on Christian Louboutin's "Anemone" stiletto bow pumps and it was a shocker at that time because it was so unique. And here now is Jimmy Choo's take on bows, this time with mesh and suede as uppers covered with Swarovski crystals in front and on the heels. Expect to gain an additional 4.7 inches on your height... comfort not guaranteed. Nevertheless, these pumps will surely make a statement especially with simple evening cocktail dresses and gowns.


The heels are treated with generous amount of crystals. 


The toe is slightly rounded and the upper has suede trim to make it more opulent.



As you can see, the bow is actually positioned on the side. These pumps are available at Jimmy Choo's official website for $1,595.

Melissa + Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Pumps


Melissa and Vivienne Westwood's collaboration is a successful one. In fact, they have made plastic/rubber shoes so chic that most fashionistas have at least one pair in their shoe rack. Despite the success, I can't consider this pump one thing that suits the majority's taste. Blame it to the molded toe design. 

However, this is available at yoox.com for $132 and there are only a few pairs left.
