It’s not hard to see why Christian Louboutin makes the most outrageous of footwear for men around, what with its bold colours (and styles), wild embellishments and enough pomp to make a roomful of 17th century French aristocracy in powdered wigs blush.
Even the humble boat shoe is not spared, and as part of the French shoemaker’s S/S14 collection, Monsieur Louboutin has covered the calf leather classic in white spike and eyelets, removed the laces and just for visual interest, gave it a rubber sole that is rope-stamped, giving it a nautical twist all its own.
Priced at SGD1500 a pair and also available in a manlier shade of brown, you can get them online via Christian Louboutin, or at their boutique within Ngee Ann City. Or check out Matches Fashion, where they’ve got another interpretation of the Yacht Spikes in Brown covered with silver-tone hardware metal spikes and eyelets. Grrr.
