PUNK AIN'T DEAD: Christian Louboutin's Electroboots
Text by |

Every time a fashion brand resurrects cultural movements of the past century, we’re always chock-full of anticipation (that is, of whether it’s going to be a complete failure or not). Well, this time we’re in luck. Forget the red sole for a minute and let us take a second to absorb the greatness that is Christian Louboutin’s Seventies punk inspired shoe: the Electroboot. It’s so cool that we’ve already planned our day around wearing a pair – starting with a little jig and air guitar solo in front of the mirror. And the good news is, whether you’re a punk or not, know what punks are or not, like punks or not, it simply won’t matter when you slip your feet into a pair of these babies because they’re sexy enough even without context. They’re a snug fit around the ankle so that leg shortening won’t be an issue. Wear with skirts, shorts and pulled-up socks, jeans, side-slit maxis, tights, or even your gym getup if you have to ‘cause they’ll shift any outfit from drab to fab. Maybe it’s the combination of black suede, trademark sole colour, pointedness and – oh yeah the fuzzy Mohawk at the back that does it. Just note: try not to go around practicing your taekwondo axe kick in them – it’ll probably hurt someone.
