My Thoughts

The 'Classic Janis 105' is one of my favourite styles along with the 'Tribtoo' by French luxury fashion house Saint Laurent founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé. The 'Classic Janis' has a 125mm (approximately 5.1 inches) thin heel and a 25mm (approximately 1 inch) bevelled platform. The upper material is made of a glossy smooth patent leather, which is very shiny when the light catches it. I love the shape of the pointed toe, it's more sharper/chiseled compared to the standard pointed styles by other designers. The insole is made of 100% leather, and cushioned for comfort. The sole is also leather, with a black semi gloss finish. Similar to Christian Louboutin's shoes, when worn on abrasive materials i.e pavement, wood floors, gravel, the black finish will start to come of, leaving the leather exposed. The shoes are just phenomenal, and can be worn with so many outfits, ranging from classic black dresses, to ripped jeans and a graphic printed top. A great pair of shoes for those that love the added height from the platform, and that edgy yet classic style.

American actress Angelina Jolie wore these beautiful pumps to the 'Maleficent' press conference for the Japan premiere at Grand Hyatt Tokyo on June 24, 2014 in Tokyo, Japan.

American singer, songwriter, and actress Demi Lovato shared a picture of her wearing these shiny Janis 105 patent pumps on her instagram.

South Korean singer, dancer, songwriter and model 'HyunA' wore these pumps in the teaser images for her new music title track, "RED".

The 'Classic Janis' pump has been worn by many celebrities in an arrange of colours. These celebrities include Heidi Klum, Ariana Grande, Jordana Brewster, Beyonce Knowles, Carrie Bickmore, Bethenny Frankel, Carmen Electra, Cara Delevingne, Jessica Chastain, Amber Heard, Irina Shayk, Angelina Jolie, Olivia Wilde, and Dascha Polanco..

I have recommended pairing these shoes with a 'Debbie' black lace-trimmed merino wool and red crepe dress by Altuzarra, and a 'Paloma Medium' rougissime leather tote bag by Christian Louboutin. The retail price for the 'Classic Janis' was £635 GBP.

Recommend Pairing

Altuzarra 'Debbie' black lace-trimmed merino wool and red crepe dress - £895

Christian Louboutin 'Paloma Medium' rougissime leather tote bag - £1,445
