Silvery Studs on Satin Slippers


Christian Louboutin for 3.1 Phillip Lim studded satin slippers

Phillip Lim updates the simultaneously geriatric and effeminate men's satin slippers by coating the uppers in round, pointed silver studs.  Add a sturdier sole and a slight heel, and they're good enough for out-of-bedroom action.


In pale sage green, they're a delightful contrast of tough and delicate, 


and in black, they're dangerously versatile!

It's fascinating how metal studs, in this high a concentration, lose the hard edge they'd normally have in smaller quantities, and instead just add on another layer of shimmer to the satin.

I didn't know these were made by Louboutin.  Does this mean the soles are red too?
