Talk about a trashy shoe! Christian Louboutin, brand favorite of sexy celebs like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and even rapper Trina, has created some shoes that go way more “creative” than his custom red-bottom soles. For a mere $1,095 you can get the Christian Louboutin Ecotrash Platform Slingback. These bad boys are a six-inch heeled, peep-toe wonder made out of paper scraps as well as fabric.
I’m all for repurposing and living green. However, I cannot help Mr. Louboutin’s efforts this time. Maybe I’ll take up an arts and crafts project at home. I’m sure I have some Kenneth Cole or some Tahari heels that I can paste some old post it notes on! I promise the Natalian McNealatin heels won’t cost a semester at a community college! I care!
I secretly wonder if the reason he made this shoe is to off set the cost of donating shoes to Kim Kardashian’s wedding?
What do you think? Would you spend $1,000 on a pair of heels? Do you like these shoes or any of the Loubies? What’s the most that you’ve spent for a shoe? Are Louboutin’s the new Manolos?
