The 5" is certainly a clear winner over the 4" - but baby blue and pink don't do it for me!

Didn't see them in Saks last night, Brian...
i was going to check in with my sa at the shoe dept. in saks last week, but i didn't get the chance to. [/QUOTE]


Brian -- I was in the Saks at Northstar last night (April 26) to look for some Louboutin wedges, and I didn't see your shoes. In fact, their Louboutin collection seemed pretty skimpy. But you can always ask the salespeople. Sometimes they have things in the back that they haven't put out, yet.

Great shoes, though. Myself, I'm in search of either some Louboutin wedges, or this killer pair of Jimmy Choos I almost bought on Yoox last night (black leather strappy uppers, with butterfly design, stacked wooden wedge with inlaid black butterfly design on back). I looked again today and of course, they're gone. DOH!!!

Your fellow S.A. shoe fanatic...

i agree... but there's something about the 4" version that i do like...they look more cutesy, whereas the 5" version has something more edgy and sexual about it.

Somos de San Antonio!

Ooooo...you can have Saks ORDER shoes for you??? ... I didn't think of that.

See -- I'm such a newbie. My biggest problem is that by the time I see something I love and miss my opportunity to get it, it's on ebay or yoox or bluefly, and so I'm not sure that the shoe is from the current season anymore.

Maybe I'll ask if they can hunt down those Choo wedges for me. Of course, it'll hurt a lot more to pay regular price than if I'd just bought the silly things on yoox last night for $300.

And HOORAY for San Antonio!!! Great town!

Wow...I'm not sure my little feet would even reach the ground in 5-inch heels. I'd be on my toes! (Memories of childhood pointe classes, anybody?)

That, and the fact that I fall over in 3-inch wedges (very clumsy), mean that I'd probably go for the 4-inch ones, and then spend days learning how to walk in them! I have some gorgeous 3 3/4 inch Manolos, and I even have trouble with those!

But the Louboutins ARE mouth-watering. They'd make a delightful addition to my "girls" -- my slowly growing designer collection!

Whilst in Miami on Saturday I saw a very similar copy to the Clichy in Taha shoes for around $100. The heel was not set back quite as much, and was only 4", but they had an almost identical toe, and came in the same colours and patent finish. They appeared to be well made with a leather sole (not red of course!). I think the brand was Savvy.



Has anyone come across these elsewhere?

Louboutin NYC has the 126mm/5'' striped pump. Jeffrey NYC has the same height in the pastels....

IMO: Dont wimp out on the 4'' heel...take it to the max.

A perfect reason (see photo) of why the higher heels works.

Dont be disappointed. You may want to call first...they may be sold out of the black after being on the cover of VF. Good Luck!
