FUN STUFF — Stunning, Stilt-like and Swarovski

Christian Louboutin Black Decorapumps

Yes, we’re back to featuring fancy shoes. 

We left the subject for awhile, but we are always drawn to them when we see a pair of striking stilts that we find phenomenal.

Such a duo emerged recently.  They are Christian Louboutin Black Strass Decorapumps. 

You might have seen them as we did on Serena Williams feet during her appearance this week at The Late Show with David Letterman.

I guess 6.3 inch heels with internal platforms are nothing new these days, but what about the price tag of $3,895!

It’s not every day one runs across shoes pricing this high.  Twelve pair might pay for freshman year at an Ivy League college.  What could possibly be included in two shoes that singularly cost $1,947 and $1,948?

The answer seems to be the individually placed Swarovski crystals, described as having the highest quality in the industry.  That’s one difference between these and Louboutin’s “Daffodile” shoes that look similar to this sparkly pair. And that duo sans jewels sells for $1,075.

Be sure to note the signature red leather soles in both pairs.  Without them, they are not the real deal.

One online description for the Decorapumps reads: “The crystalized print on this high style pump is mesmerizing.”

You be the judge.  Mesmerizing or not?  If you had the money and you could pick any shoe in the world, would you pick this one?  By the way, if you don’t like black, they come in purple.
