Christian Louboutin Enclume Platform Oxfords, $1145 via Net-a-Porter
If you’ve been following along here with us for a while, you might remember that our ecstatic post about the Christian Louboutin x Jonathan Saunders Fall 2011 collection when it debuted at London Fashion Week last season. Thankfully, many of the runway shoes that Louboutin makes for other designers find their way to retail in his own line, and that’s exactly what has happened with the Christian Louboutin Enclume Platform Oxfords.
These shoes are definitely not your standard Louboutin fare, but that’s part of why they’re so interesting. The combination of rich velvet and mirrored patent is very much on-trend, and the super chunky heel and platform are not only current, but also a little more forgiving than a traditional stiletto. Be careful about donning this pair of shoes in inclement weather, but if the sun is shining, go forth and be edgy. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1145.
