We are not sure we could have ever imagined a Christian Louboutin shoe to be made for the gym. Honestly, we are still not convinced. Yet it appears that the target audience is the woman who heads out to the gym with the latest ad wherein those red soled spiky accented ankle boots are worn with knee high gym socks made more for playing soccer than to be worn with heels we would much rather see at a club.
There is always something new happening with Christian Louboutin and we are forever left intrigued by the designer’s antics. With a new twist to footwear seen once again, the Christian Louboutin shoes pre-fall 2015 give the looks the gym treatment with a Love Story theme to the shoot. It is seductive, it is mesmerizing and it most certainly is not made to be worn to the gym, despite the attractiveness of seeing a woman in black pumps with red soles pumping her legs on the elliptical. There are 4 distinct pieces to be found in this elaborate collection, including one known as Elastogram – we wonder if it was named thus to make it perfectly Instagram worthy – with its golden heel, colorful body and more summery sandal look, the Electroboot – we can totally imagine these things generating a whole lot of electricity on the dance floor – which is the velvet ankle boots with the spes additions to the slightly thicker heels, and the Araknene – somehow it brings Armenian princesses to mind with that name – which consists of a mesh look with a spike heel and a closed toe, a flower petal ankle boot that looks incredibly sexy with the pinkish coral stockings.
This collection is made complete by adding one more pump to the line up, this time more of the classic Louboutins with the red soles and surprisingly painfully steep body that we can imagine killing your feet in no time at all. We are not sadists for torture, but those pumps are simply too sexy to pass up. Of course if you want an accessory to throw in with the pumps or booties seen on the gym, a rather absurd place to be wearing these but somehow feeding into a man’s fantasy of having sexy time after getting hot and bothered while sweating it all out on the exercise floor, and Christian Louboutin’s got the right present for you. We are talking the fringed and studded LuckyL bag, which probably belongs on the darker underground music scene than at the gym. It is almost too wild and too bold of a handbag to be used to carry towels, water bottles and all those pieces that a gym goer needs. We do not recommend walking into an actual gym with any of these actually, unless it is a first class place where the women go to be eye candy for the men.
