And, yes, we're talking shoe porn. And we're talking a big fat bucket list tick. Oh, you know the shoes are good when there's a proper dust bag.
When it comes to porn, it's an each-to-their-own thing, isn't it? What works for one doesn't for another and all that jazz. And when it comes to shoe porn, S&M mine up baby! Bring on the STUDS!
Ew. S'cuse that blurry pic. I'd already taken it and uploaded them all by the time I realised how bad it was and, frankly, I couldn't be arsed going back to get a better one. Is that terrible? I couldn't not include it though because you really need the back view. Of the studs. Here's a sidey back view:
Gay god, are they not an utter joy?! The neat rounded studs (S&M lite, if you will), the gorgeous electric blue leather. Oh the leather. I don't know about you but, when I get new leather shoes, I have to give them a good sniff and a good stroke. And working in shoes, there's usually no shortage of colleagues waiting for their stroke and sniff too. I usually oblige. These smell good. And feel good. Especially when you run your hands over the studs. Did I mention they're studded?
Look how gloriously pointy the toes are. I love a good almondy toe. I've just got back into the idea of a stiletto in the last year or so. They're still only a tiny portion of my shoe collection but those I do have are crackers. When I get a mo', I'll show you some more. They're worth it.
At this time in the proceedings, I'd desperately like to get a "woop, woop" for the white heel tip and white platform. It's shit like this that I die for. Electric blue stiletto = good. Electric blue stiletto with stud detailing = I'm swooning. Electric blue stiletto with stud detailing and a white rubber platform, sole and heel tip = Llara's shoe heaven. I swear, I put these on (and I was wearing a heap of random stuff that they did NOT go with) and I was just cooler. Instantly. These shoes kill shit shoes. Shoes like this are why I push the boat out and embrace a bit of designer from time to time. Oh glory. I'm off to go hug my shoes.
