Christian Louboutin 8-Inch Ballet Fetish Heels

Christian Louboutin created the 8-inch, Swarkovsky-detailed heels featured above as an item to be featured in an upcoming auction to benefit the English National Ballet. Not meant to be walked in, clearly they’re inspired by an extreme silhouette that would be viewed as commonplace in the world of s&m. And in this case, it makes sense given ballet’s own dependence on foot maneuvers that are inherently tortuous to the foot.
