Christian Louboutin So Kate
Christian Louboutin pumps are the MOST iconic pair of shoes on the planet. These red soles are the most coveted high fashion items that have the ability to transform any outfit. There are a number of styles from kitten heels to sky high pumps but if you ask me the most iconic and classy style you can find is the So Kate pumps. The Christian Louboutin So Kate is the style own so that’s what I’m going to talk about.
Any Christian Louboutin pair is an investment you’re going to have for a long time in your closet so if you want to have a go-to pair of stilettos the choice in color is clear: Black and if you want me to be more specific, I went for the Patent leather in black. You can also choose between suede and kid leather.
Christian Louboutin So Kate: Fit and Sizing
When it comes to sizing most retailers suggest taking half or a full size up due to a very narrow toe box when it come to the So Kates. I definitely suggest following this advice.
Talking from personal experience patent leather is quite stiff and even after breaking them in they don’t really take the shape of your feet unless of course you plan on wearing them every day, which, let’s be honest, is highly unlikely. Now I don’t have any personal experience with suede or kid leather but I have read they tend to be more flexible so make sure you do your research.
I am wearing high heels since I was in school and the last couple of years I’m wearing them almost every day so I’m quite used to them in general but the Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps are a category on their own. They are definitely not comfortable shoes and it’s going to hurt but when it comes to Louboutins anything is acceptable. In other words wearing them is going to hurt but you’re going to enjoy every minute of it.
Walking on the So Kates is an experience. If you are not comfortable with walking on at least 100mm heels I definitely don’t recommend them. The reason this style is so classy is the high arch of the shoe, which translates to a 12mm stiletto heel and no added sole. It does take some getting used to it but it is so worth it.
Most women would tell you that you should always break in your new shoes before wearing them outside but I got my So Kates the night before I had to wear them so I didn’t break them in at all and I was pretty much ok! So if you’re feeling brave don’t break them in, just make sure you can actually walk on them.
As I said before the So Kate are quite narrow which makes them a little painful at first but it is also the reason they are considered one of the sexiest heels out there. Ever since I got them I can safely say they have become one of my most worn pair of shoes. They can make a t-shirt and jeans outfit look like high fashion and you will feel like you just left the runway. I’m not even exaggerating, it’s just the truth.
So, was it worth it? Yes! A thousand times yes! I haven’t regretted buying them not a moment in my life. If you’re looking to invest I a high fashion, designer item this is the way to go.
