Christian Louboutin Clichy pump
i've decided that this shoe is worthy of its own thread as it seems to have a sort-of "cult" following.

any info on these would be appreciated... do any of you own a pair? ...prices? ...do any of you know the name of this style?

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. the lookbook for louboutin s/s 05 was supposed to have come in... when i get the chance to go, i'll post more info on this shoe. as far as i know, it comes in white patent, black patent, light blue patent, mint (pastel) green patent, and i believe pastel pink patent as well as green silk (thanks alejandro).... gwen stefani's seemingly always pictured parading around in the black patent version... i've no prices as of yet.

It will be interesting to see if this shoe "scales" properly. If it does, the heel on a size 10 or 11 is going to be over 6" - and if it doesn't scale properly, it will look just like any old pump. After all, 5" heel on size 10 is no big deal!

Usually 4" is the maxe for me even in terms of looks but there is something so gorgeous about these shoes and those black patent ones that gwen has make me desire them. They are just so hot. yes, style name and price would be a definate plus.

The heel should be placed _under_ the heel of the foot, not at the back of the shoe, now the design and proportions look all off. Looks like the whole shoe is toppling forward. It's design for the sake of design, not for the sake of looking good. I would imagine these shoes to be more difficult to walk in than normal 5" heels...

All...well most...of Louboutins heels are set back like that and that shape...

I'll like to join, but do we have to burn our shoes?
A gal can never have too many pairs, right?
