I really, really want a pair of smoking loafers, as they're called, and my favorite ones are by Christian Louboutin. As luck would have it, they're sold out on the website. On top of that, the price point is, shall we say, unfriendly at $1,295. But one cannot deny the infinite cool factor with these loafers. I found this pic on the Loubtoutin website. The style is called Rolling Spikes.
For now, I'm hoping I can just break them in. They're just not Louboutins, they're much cheaper, and the materials are a lot less forgiving. The pair I got is missing a spike, but I'm not sure if I'm motivated enough to take them back to the store.
