Shoe Game : Christian Louboutin Unbout Illusion Pump

by on July 14, 2012
 

It seems like every woman in Hollywood has the ‘Unbout Illusion Pump’ nowadays, and some celebrities (not mentioning any names, Kim K) aren’t afraid to keep them in constant outfit rotation.

I’m not going to lie, I’m getting tired of hearing ‘Louboutin this, Louboutin that’ from the mouth of every rapper. In my opinion, the brand’s speciality and uniqueness is getting played out because of their constant mention in the media as being the ‘it’ shoe brand; causing every woman with access to money to rush to their nearest department store to buy some Red Bottoms just to say they have a pair. But, I digress. Their sensational popularity is due to more than just mentions in hip hop; it’s obvious that Louboutin never fails at creating the best statement shoes a woman can buy. The ‘Unbout Illusion Pump’ ($795) – saturating every perfectly pedicured toe in Hollywood -is the perfect example.

Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian, Solange Knowles, and Beyonce all wearing the Christian Louboutin Unbout Illusion Pump.

I’m a huuuuuge fan of this shoe – PVC is a very risky material to use (I usually think of lucite/stripper heels anytime I see something clear on women’s footwear), but Louboutin did more than make it work, he killed it. The ankle straps make the heels very youthful and modern. Beyonce is rocking the coral version to match her man’s Lebron IX Mango kicks – she and Jay-Z look way too cute for words. They also come in a bright lemon color, and these amazing spiked versions (my favorites):

The silver version on the left is my favorite, but the snakeskin is great too. I’m definitely trying to get my hands on a pair. Ladies, would you rock these? Let me know!
