When it comes to shoes, Christian Louboutin sets the bar. High. As high as their heels. The dégradé trend can be very hit or miss, but the Louboutin “So Kate” pumps ($745) are a fashion success. Patent leather and a sky-high stiletto heel give the shoe a sexy edge that is characteristic of Louboutin shoes. Starting at the heel there’s pinky-beige that beautifully transitions to black. We’re in love with this gorgeous, alluring shoe.
