Snakes on a shoe

Christian Louboutin sandalE. M. Zanotti found this slithering through Neiman's, and not only are there snakes on the vamp, the heel is snakeskin. From Christian Louboutin, around $690. This reminds me of his "Palace" sandal, worn by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, which I suppose should serve as a reminder that there's seldom any need to reinvent the wheel. (Aside: Speaking of snakes, I have to give some sort of props to whoever it was who thought it might be amusing to drape a rubber snake across the auditorium door at Tinseltown this past weekend. Very amusing in a tacky sort of way, rather like the film I came to see.) This is a very nice shoe, though I can't imagine anyone I know actually wearing it, what with the four-inch heel and all. (Those whom I know who do like four-inch heels generally don't like snakes, even stylized ones made out of shiny metal.) And yes, I swiped E.M.'s title; this was a case where I knew I couldn't improve upon it.

I don't know who is getting more mileage out of this "Snakes on a Plane" craze; you or Samuel Jackson. ;)

He'd better be getting more; he gets paid for this shtick.

I like this shoe--snakes and all.

"Those whom I know who do like four-inch heels generally don't like snakes, even stylized ones made out of shiny metal."

Since then, I've heard from someone I know (outside blogdom) who does not conform to this, um, stereotype. Just so you'll know.

And lest you think it's just me, here's Gawker with "Snakes on a Train".
