Christian Louboutin Dives into the Scuba Trend with His Snorkeling Neoprene Booties

May 1, 2012 • By Erika

Christian Louboutin is known for shoes that are classic and red-carpet-ready. The following snorkeling neoprene booties are therefore a surprising pair from Christian Louboutin:

It’s not something you would expect from Christian Louboutin, is it? It’s neither a very sexy shoe style, nor is it very original as we’ve seen a similar neoprene design on the Jimmy Choo scuba front-zip sandal before.

But like the Christian Louboutin “Decoupata” strappy booties, the very fact that this snorkeling neoprene pair is surprising and unexpected makes it decidedly a Louboutin. Louboutin didn’t make it to the top of the game by just rehashing his old designs. He made it there by always changing his game, keeping everybody guessing, and always staying a step ahead of the competition.

Okay, so with that Jimmy Choo scuba shoe, maybe Louboutin isn’t the first to jump on this particular trend. But the “sporty scuba” is one of the hottest spring/summer 2012 trends right now, and we do need more shoe selections to pair with the very many scuba dresses!

The Louboutin neoprene booties retail for $895 and might be a style that’s reserved for hardcore Louboutin collectors. But we’d still ask you anyway: Would you wear high-heeled neoprene booties like these?

These Louboutins are available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
