If you feel like something is missing from your shoe wardrobe, here’s a hint: the key ingredient might very well be spice! No more. Christian Louboutin has brought caliente spice is spades with one of his Spring/Summer 2012 additions, the Torero pump (along with the coordinating Sofia clutch).
His eternal Lady Peep style has been made over yet again, this time reaping heated inspiration from the regal costume of the matador. In grand Spanish tradition, this satin peep-toe is carefully bedecked in a fine arrangement of 3-D embroidery and strass crystals.
I may not be up for a bullfight, but I certainly can see a pair of these prancing through a darkly lit flamenco club in one of the romantic backstreets of Madrid.
