This is a Christian Louboutin pair of “ballerina shoes”. The heel is 8 inches high and the shoes were designed for the English National Ballet. Of course, the inspiration was ballerina toe shoes. This was auctioned off at the ballet’s fundraising Summer Party in London.
To quote the master, “I could not help being inspired by English National Ballet… after all…isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven!”
