Christian Louboutin Croc Pump

By now, I can comfortably say most retail prices don't scare me. But, my eyes almost popped out of their sockets yesterday when gal pal and I visited a Louboutin boutique. While browsing I drooled over gorgeous exotic skin pumps. There were crocodiles, alligators, water snakes and much more. Mr. Louboutin, you are really bad for my wallet. Exotic skins make such a bold luxurious statement, I feel giddy just thinking about the idea.
I totally fell in adoration with a pair of most beautiful red peep toe pumps. It's the pair on the most right hand side. It is this deep blue-red. The one on far left is more orange-red. The purple on right is pretty snazzy too.
As I was saying before, these shoes are just too gorgeous; I just had to show its side profile. Anyhoo, I had to double check the price again when I saw the retail price of $5995. Yes, it's not a misprint! The SA justified the price by saying these skins were treated. I wonder how many alligators or crocodiles can I buy with this price? What is the maximum you will pay for a pair of shoes?

  3. I say I max out at about $80.00 and that is realistic. I hope to one day do better but not for now. Your blog makes me happy.

  5. Oh my gosh! That is a scary price for a pair of shoes. I tend to splurge more on bags than shoes. I think the most I would spend is $300.

    I do love the deep red/bluish color of those shoes though!

  6. I'd love to get very expensive shoes as gifts or promo gifts, which are part of perks you get as a stylist, celebrity, etc. But I personally can't justify spending more than $1000, knowing that I can help so many people with the same amount of money...

  9. LOL! I just came to this post from another blog in which the blogger writes dreaming about crocodiles. Maybe these are the crocs she was speaking of.

  10. Holy crap that's so expensive!! I would rather pay more for a bag than shoes b/c although shoes are utterly gorgeous, they are more exposed to damage being closer to the ground than bags.

  11. LOL, that is ridiculous, crazy, insanely expensive! If I had $ to burn, sure why not...but in real life, not a chance!

  12. Yikes, those are some expensive shoes! They are completely and utterly gorgeous (of course!) but I don't think I could spend that much money on shoes unless I had the income of Bill Gates. Too bad I don't see that happening any time soon!

  13. I don't pay more than 200 € - I think more is not necessary.

  14. At first I thought you wrote five-hundred-ninety-five and I thought "hmm...not too bad for Louboutin's" but then I re-read the post and my eyes almost popped out too! That is way too much, but you are right- they are just gorgeous to look at! Great post :) XO

  17. These are so gorg, but sorry, not for that price! I mean if money were no object, sure I'd splurge, but not during these current times! Still lust-worthy though.. just from afar. :)

  21. These shoes will remain firmly in my dreams :( Greeeat shoes! I like slingbacks but they tend to just fall off my feet...

  22. For that price, I might spend it on a bag because shoes get more wear and will become really old looking after a few years. If only I can find a money growing tree I can plant in my back yard.

  23. As a hardcore bargain hunter I refuse to spend more than $100... and even that is high, so they really have to have me drooling! I have 44 pairs of shoes and the majority are leather and under $30 a pair

  24. i'll admit i don't spend a lot on shoes because most of the time my pants are too long and covering them up...so the most if i truly could not live without them would probably be $150...but usually i find the good deals and buy em on sale for around $60-70...now my denim on the other hand...well that's just a completely different story...
