Does anyone have this style of Rollerboy ? or a similar pair ? have any of you had trouble with the Spikes ? I've heard horror stories regarding them falling off.
I'm thinking of purchasing this pair or ones similar.

Wow, people hating the Daffodile?? I don't think the shoe is too bad. Cheap is one thing it isn't. I have seen them in person and they are made to the same standard as any other Louboutin. Yes, it could stand to have a higher heel, to balance out the platform's size. If that was done you would have women complaining about the extreme arch of the shoe. It's just one of those shoes. You either love or hate, comfort or confidence, balls or ... Lol. And for every lady that steps up to that plate, more power to you, Do it and do it well... I'm eating for the Daffodile pik pik pik :8)

I have heard similar stories, I know if you lose the spike it can be easily replaced. However I'm not sure is Mr.Louboutin replaces them. It would be good to ask. If they do not, I'm sure you can find similar spikes online and you can always purchase a grommet machine to put it back on(get help putting it on).

Yes, Louboutin replaces spikes. Now you have to find a good Cobbler in your area and your set :8).

Heel height is fine, it's the plaform that is too high and clumpy. Should be half it's height.

True but, that arch lol. Some women will love the 5.5 and others will buy them to complain.

Heck, I would love to see a production 160mm or even 150mm Pigalle, without a platform but, I HIGHLY doubt that would ever happen bc of the arch.

No, it wouldn't be practical, even as limo-shoes. Most people can't handle that height. It would look something like this:

That's not bad. That's gotta be about 5.5 or 6 inches. I think a 140mm or 150mm Pigalle would work.

What does everyone think of Alex? The Lion Paw Pump. I read on TheLouboutinBlog that the Alex is about 3100bucks and only 8 are being made. They said they are beautifully made. :8). I would rock an Alex version of the Rollerboy :3) http://thelouboutinblog.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/6714.jpg

On the Louboutin Masai did he use real beads or are those elastic straps? I would have loved to seen real Masai beads on the straps.
