Lacy and Racy Designer Shoes

If you have an extra pair of keen eyes, you would notice that in every occasion, whether during a grand evening ball or mere Sundays at the local park, there is a lass wearing at least a hint of lace. Obviously, that lady has an impeccable fashion taste.

The popularity of lace has never diminished since its peak during the 15th century when it was mainly patronized as ‘clergical couture’. Over the years, it has been constructed and deconstructed to complement the ever-evolving lifestyle of the chic woman. It began as a fabric for luxurious clothing and has since found its way to women’s toes. Yes, lace shoes have graced the runways and pavements for the longest time now. Here are a few sampling from the world’s premiere shoe labels.

Fifi by Christian Louboutin

Christian Louboutin Fifi Shoes

Nobody knows lace better than the French and the famed Christian Louboutin demonstrated that very well in his collection of lace shoes. For Fifi, lace was coupled with satin—a perfect combination that will take you from brunches with your girlfriends to a dinner date with your beau. These 4-inch heels can definitely go a long way.

Very Prive by Christian Louboutin

Christian Louboutin Very PriveAlmost a sister to Fifi, the Very Prive by Christian Louboutin features the same lovely black chantily lace over a nude canvas. This pair, however, has an inch of platform and an inch taller than Fifi in terms of heels.  Its peep toe adds a sexier touch to this classic pair.

Faith by Jimmy Choo

It’s a cause for debate on whether it’s the lace, the curves or the 4.8 inch skinny heels that make this style exquisitely sexy. A closer look at these Jimmy Choo peep-toe pumps would reveal glossy patent leather piping.  Be effortlessly elegant by pairing Faith with a little black dress and finishing off with pearl earrings.

Kudos by Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo KudosJimmy Choo shifts his take on lace from sophisticated in Faith to fierce in Kudos. With killer heels of 6 inches high, these booties have “luxurious” and “provocative” written all over it. Imagine wrapping your entire feet up above your ankle with lovely black embroidery; your feet becomes an ornament in itself. Moreover, the back zipper offers a more secured fit while satin bows lined on one side boost the flirty factor.

Swoon by Stuart Weitzman

These Stuart Weitzman shoes are quiet a tease with the upper mesh revealing only a bit of skin. Satin lace puts a romantic feel in these pumps. The black edition is deemed more versatile as you can wear them with pencil skirts at the office or skinny jeans for casual days. Meanwhile, the ivory version would make for splendid bridal shoes.  Indeed, walking in these 4.5 inch heels will make others swoon.

Bowright by Stuart Weitzman

Any shoe fiend would agree that bows delightfully accentuate peep toe shoes. Weitzman centers on this fact with his bowright pumps but adds more edge by using deluxe lace. The black openwork fabric blends well with champagne satin in these 4.5 inch pumps. Highly recommended for evening wear, this pair is effortlessly stunning.
