every man needs at least one shoes with red sole from christian louboutin but they are too expensive so i am kinda indecisive which one should i get for my first louboutin

not really a fan of brogue but i heard they are in fashion? also is it too pointy? they have rounder ones but i cant help to feel weird with round shoes







the beautiful spikes in gun mental is truly iconic , people will easily recognize that i am wearing a louboutin







oxford not brogue they say, abit too plain for a louboutin but i love the contrasts of the red sole with the black leather.. btw they have the rounder one and i feel they look weird, somehow pointy shoes look right to me but am i seeing it right? or its too pointy to be formal shoes







btw is this made of dragon scale?

You get red soles easy with leather dye or red topy.

The Oxford and the brogue are fugly. The studded slipper is best out of the bunch.

For information regarding dragon scales I'd contact the Targaryen family, they seem to be knowledgeable in this field.
And round shoes do look plain and boring. I find that such dull footwear is only worn by simpletons.
Pointy and square shoes are truly the mark of a distinguished gentleman.

1100 $? How much would a pair of John Lobb bespoke be ? Or Saint Crispins?
Well, nevermind that, you obviously have something of top quality, It's monogrammed
Have fun resoling those

John Lobb bespoke starts at around $7-8k, same range for Berluti. For more affordable options, UK bespokes are around $5-6k. Saint Crispins only $1.6k. LV is priced for pedestrians.

With one picture he was able to tell me he has terrible taste in shoes, jeans, and watches. Very efficient and I applaud him for his effort.

Yes, and many come standard with red soles.

Regrettably, monograming IS extra.

This place would become a barren wasteland in HM's absence.
One shudders at the thought...
