Henry VIII Would Have Approved of This Louboutin Shoe

FIT FOR A KING. If you’re looking for red-carpet shoes, Christian Louboutin has a bunch of fine pairs




This season sees an even more colorful and richer ensemble, as the creative designer sought to capture the spectacular hues of fireworks and the opulent embellishments of England’s Tudor dynasty.

For the former, the Louis on Fire high-top sneakers sport color bursts in embroidery on the side. The latter features exhaustively replicas on the Tudor Night Flat slip-ons, where layers of velvet are laser-cut to emulate the dramatic floral motifs often seen in 16th-century silks.

The bluish embellishment on top of the black shoe structure is a testament to the painstaking artisanal work that goes into a shoe fit for a fashionable king.
