Christian Louboutin says he imagines a woman undressed and makes the shoes the most flattering for her figure. I definitely agree that his forms are the most sexy and bring out the shape of a woman's legs in the most elegant way. I love the classic pump and the new kid leather pump. More than 10cm gets a little tough to walk in. I got the Rolandos on sale and can't wear them. My lovely pair of classic pumps in patent red leater are just terrific but the leather is cracking and leaving white veins where the toes push against the shoe. The other models have stood the test of time but to be fair, I do not wear them as every day shoes. If I had a word to say to a Louboutin neophyte, it would be: get a classic pump in black to start but avoid the patent leather. This model is the easiest to wear for its height. If you're comfortable with that then you can try others. And be careful when walking over grills on the sidewalk, they can ruin your heels!
