I guess we have Rhianna to thank for this style. I have recently purchased a pair similar to the Louboutin Black Gladiator Sandal worn by many celebs. My heels however were bought at Winners and they cost a billion dollars less. I love Winners. So, what is great about this shoe is that it creates an edgy somewhat downtown look. Like most heels it is versatile in that it will pair well with either a dressy cocktail look or a more toned down denim style. Which ever style you choose remember to maintain that manicure as your toes are still visible and choose a colour that will match with the majority of your wardrobe. Stick with basics as this is a seasonal look.
