(Red) rubber soul



Have I been very slow on the uptake? Are these red rubber soles for Louboutin's not one of the best ideas you have seen (in a shoe context)?

I am very lucky to own a couple of much treasured pairs of these shoes- saved for and bought in sales. I have to say I haven't bought any for a couple of seasons, as their popularity has increased my ability to find any in a very normal 38 or 39 has diminished. Still I have a much adored, now old enough to possibly even be called vintage, pair of purple suede boots whose soles are losing their ravishing redness- these soles seem the perfect way to put the swing back in their- and therefore my- step. I'm ordering a pair. Hopefully I will be proved very right.

Top bird- you wonder why they don't give you them with them really don't you. I much prefer walking on leather soles but they do get perilous when it rains and when the heels are higher than 4 inches!!

Hi Skirmish- I know! great idea hey. Hope the cobbler can work some magic!
