I am so petrified by this piece of horror that I don’t know what to do. But maybe you, reader, can make this look good?
I actually would not be surprised if a celebrity wears these very soon and makes them look fantastic.
From the two different kinds of animal print to the shiny interior to the printed patent leather vamp, I just don’t know what to say about this slingback.
What frightens me even more than the snakeskin and leopard print is the fact that they warn you that the pattern may vary.
So who knows what might come to your doorstep exactly?
For that reason, I’d get this heel in-store if you’re dead set on it. That way you’ll know exactly what the pattern will look like on yours.
With anything this heavy and platformy, there is always a concern that the slingback with stretch out, and this is an elastic slingback, so I’d be even more worried.
This is a 6-inch heel with a 1.25 inch platform.
The $1540 Skyline shoe we wrote about before is an edgy, wondrous feat of architecture. I see it as icy, dignified, avant-garde, elegant.
So I never pictured it styled with a very punk-looking gal with a pixie cut, wearing a sorta-houndstoothy tank top and a see-through skirt!
But it works, especially with edgy jewelry to mirror the shoes.
You can still get your Skyline shoe at Pierre Hardy stores.
I’ve been meaning to write about these for awhile. Honestly, how could I not?

Nicholas Kirkwood is a shoe genius. And when he does a collaboration, it’s almost always drool-worthy. On the runway, these shoes he designed for Erdem were simply breathtaking.
The overall Spring 2011 Erdem runway was full of ethereal laces, layered embroidery and vibrant swathes of vivid colors with blended, water-color effects. Whether in youthful mini dresses or floating maxi dresses, the entire collection exuded femininity, movement, and elegant whimsy*.
Last week business took me to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. It is quite a charming place. In one of the tourist shops, I found a line of shoes by Lindsay Phillips that were a lot of fun. You start with a basic sandal or shoe, then change the look by changing the embellishments. The flip flops have velcro on the straps and another line has a heavy duty snap that allows you to change the decorations. I was like a kid in a candy shop. Let me show you what I am talking about.
Here is the basic sandal I purchased. (These photos are off the web site.)

These soles can be smacked onto the bottom of your shoes to give you the Louboutin effect.
But would Louboutin really try to sue the company that purveys the idea of 15-year-old Irish schoolgirl Tara Houghton?
What do you think, readers? Would you sue, if you were Louboutin?
