Knotted Raspberry Suede Pumps

These Louboutins are terrific. So many of his shoes that have been featured in magazines lately (and even that I've been seeing in the stores) are way too trendy and over-the-top. A couple of years back, during the reign of the 'ladylike look', I remember coveting his shoes as much as Manolo Blahnik's, but that was before he started heeling the most outrageously-clad celebrities.

Maybe these pumps signal an intention to take his designs in a direction that's a little more classic. They're discreet but still ooze personality and look like they'll age beautifully. The rich berry shade would do a good job of perking up fall/winter's subdued black, brown and navy but also look swell paired with brights or pastels on formal occasions in spring and summer.
