My Thoughts

Beautiful neutral skin tone pointed toe high heel shoes by icon french shoe designer Christian Louboutin. The 'So Kate' is named after english fashion model Kate Moss which came about whilst he was fitting her for shoes for her wedding celebrations. Mr.Louboutin decided to reshape his classic 'Pigalle' just for her. Compared to the 'Pigalle' the 'So Kate' has a lengthened toe point, the heel has slightly been closed in more and the heel is thinner and higher. The heel height is 120mm and is super skinny. The beautiful neutral skin tone is adequately named nude. The upper material is made of a glossy patent leather, whiles the insole is padded and made of 100% leather. As with all Christian Louboutin shoes, the leather sole has his iconic red lacquered paint, which looks super glossy in the light.

These shoes are a one of the most popular choices for celebrities, and have been spotted at a wide range of events and award shows. Sienna Miller wore these pumps to the BFI Gala Dinner held in London, and Kate Moss wore them to the 2013 British Fashion Awards. Other celebrities such as Blake Lively, Camilla Belle, Olivia Wilde, Christina Milian, Kate Hudson, Maria Menounos and Eva Longoria are seen wearing these pumps often.

 The pencil thin heel and pointed toe makes these one of the classic high heel pumps of all time, as the 'So Kate' is an updated version of  the Pigalle, Christian Louboutins best selling shoe. These shoes will make any outfit classy and sophisticated. They are perfect for any season, and can be recommended with nearly every look. In my recommendation outfit I have chosen a smart casual look, perfect for a day's shopping.  I have paired these Christian Louboutin 'So Kate' nude patent pumps with a silk crepe de chine white shirt by Saint Laurent and a pair of moto-style distressed low-rise skinny jeans by Balmain. To finish the outfit I chose a 'Katinca' belted faux fur coat by Malene Birger and accessorised with a 'Riley/M' ballet pink soft grained leather tote bag by Jimmy Choo.  The retail price for these high heels are £425 GBP.
