I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to say that of all the shoes in all the land, Christian Louboutin’s are the most anticipated of any given season. The footwear master always has some kind of new trick up his sleeve, and even when you think that he must be utterly tapped out, after 20 years in the business and thousands of shoes, he comes through.
This sampling of shoes from Christian Louboutin Spring 2012 gives us an idea of what’s to come, and it seems as though Louboutin has gotten the message about the trendiness of non-platformed pumps. As a result, he’s offering more shoes of that structure than has become expected for the brand of the giant platforms, and the results are predictably excellent. The clear-panelled pumps in particular have piqued my interest; even though that type of plastic isn’t my favorite material, I bet they look great on the foot. Check out the rest of our preview after the jump.
