Stiletto Style File

"Stiletto's on my feet/I'm sexy wit a mug/I'm buckin all ya hatas just to see if ya crunk/We swangin, throwin bows/Cause ya boys thought we soft/I'm knockin heads off/I'm da baddest of dem all." Diamond from Crime Mob, 'Stillettos (Pumps)'
Hey guys!
So one exasperated, anonymous Fashion Bomb devotee wrote me the following:

-Spotted on Ciara/w black mini dress
-Kanya West's Girlfriend
i love those shoes

I took a look and found pictures of the shoes in question:

Unfortunately, I've yet to find the exact shoe (does anyone know?), but I've gotten close....
This standby by Bruno Frisoni...

is $585 at
This pair by Christian Louboutin...

...could give off the same effect. It's $720 at
And this pair by Malo...

is so expensive...that the price is upon request at
I found one cheaper substitute at Nine West...

...for $79 at
I wish I could be of more help. If anyone can ID the spiked heels in question, please let a sista know.
Until then...
PS Club Monaco's having an end of the season/President's Day Sale

OMG! Wow, you are really bringing it back. Byron Lars! great stuff, he used to frequent my gym years ago with several other of his colleagues who were also designers. I came across his Barbie making efforts awhile back and am glad to see you've brought this to the forefront! He is the best.

Keep it coming!

I can't find those shoes either...but... I did find a website with an extensive collection of African American barbie Dolls including new designs from Bryon Lars.

I think I may become a collector!

I saw these pair of shoes a few weeks back on an actress walking the red carpet at (I'm thinking) the Golden Globe Awards. At the moment her name escapes me, but I Do remember thinking hoe hideous I thought these shoes were and I hoped they would not catch on. P.S...Beyonce has also been seen sporting a pair I WILL find out for you.
