Dangerously Spiked Loafers

The Christian Louboutin Spooky Vernis Shoes Will Give You a Tough Edge

— October 2, 2012 — Fashion
Watch out, these Christian Louboutin Spooky Vernis shoes carry a heavy wallop. The footwear is a simple velvet loafer made of patent leather; the wow-factor is bunched up by the toe of the shoes in the form of metal spikes tightly grouped together. Soft patent leather cushions the inside of the sole, so you can kick butt for miles on end.

These shoes will boost your danger level by more than 50 percent, taking you from a harmless human to a full-blown bad boy. Once you slip these shoes on your feet, people will have no choice but to respect you. You won't be able to get away from all the attention.

The Christian Louboutin Spooky Vernis shoes are part of the Fall 2012 line.
