So I'm feeling a bit deflated because I thought these shoes,
from Christian Louboutin,
which are sold in UK pounds (£3,975
) but at today's USD price (according to OANDA
) are $5,660,
were pricey. And then I saw this post
from my colleague Rigel. I'm willing to bet, however, that for many of us, $5,660 is still a chunk o' change for shoes.
Only 36 pairs of these Marie Antoinette-inspired shoes are being made in each color -- ballerina pink, bright yellow, and blue. That means that only 108 women (unless you buy multiple pairs) will have the opportunity to (try to)
walk in these high-heeled creations, which are embroidered by Jean-Francois Lesage, a man behind many a couture gown, and decorated with crystals and ribbons. If you prefer to keep these showpieces safe in their box each night, no worries -- they come with a special box.
Available February 24 at a Louboutin boutique near you.
