These precious, red-soled Parisian shoes aren’t for bashful dressers. They come in patterned fabrics, clear vinyl, and textured skin as often as in regular old leather. We like the satin pump covered in crystal and embroidery and the satin peep-toe with a brooch. The meatpacking district store is no bigger than the pint-size uptown branch, but caters to a younger, funkier clientele with firecracker-red carpets, Lucite shelves, and ornate eighteenth-century picture frames for handbag display. Highlights include neon wedges with pink metallic straps, cork platforms with linen straps, and linen peep-toe pumps with lizard trim.
Louboutin’s bridal shoes—which no longer come with the trademark blue lining—aren’t for bashful dressers; his styles are outrageously romantic. Brides love the ivory-satin peep-toe pumps ($795).
