Christian Louboutin never fails to surprise us with his incredible designs and crazy ideas. We’ve seen him produce glass slippers, eight inch ballet stilettos and tattoo inspired shoes. At the end of 2012 Louboutin opened his first men’s store in New York, which along with selling shoes also doubles as a tattoo parlor where customers can have their tattoos scanned and printed on shoes. Spikes are not new to the world of fashion, however the way that Louboutin crafts them onto these shoes for men and women is definitely new. The men’s shoe titles the ‘Ironito’ has the toe section covered in metallic gold in spikes of various shapes and sizes, giving the shoe an almost modern cowboy feel. The back of the shoe also has light spike detailing to compliment the toe section. The shoe comes in a light beige color and retails for $2,595.
The women’s counterpart, the Lady Peep Spikes has been made using golden python leather. These sexy peep toes have a 150 mm stiletto heel that is completely covered in gold python leather. The shoe is completely covered in small gold spikes of uniform length that add edginess to this sultry shoe. This sexy spiked shoe costs $1,995.
