My first Christian Louboutin (take two)

After my New Simple 120 found a new home, the search for the perfect Loubies continues. This time, I was super careful about choosing the right style as well as choosing the correct size. After a week of non-stop searching, I finally found the ones =) I ended up with the Ron Ron Watersnake Pumps in Tan

As mentioned previously, I wasn't looking for something in nude or black. I wanted something different but still suitable for everyday wear. Ron Ron is the perfect classic style that can be worn day and night. Tan is a great neutral and goes with most of everything in my closet.

Height: The height of these shoes (90mm - 3.5 inches) is just a bit taller than the Ann Taylor perfect leather pumps (3 1/4 inches) which I wear almost everyday. Compared to the New Simple 120, they are much more comfortable and manageable.


Texture: What attracted me to these shoes was the fun texture. At first I wasn't sure what "watersnake" means. I asked a sales associate at Saks and he said it just meant leather stamped in snake texture. It certainly gives this beautiful pair a very interesting look.

Sizing: According to the description, this particular style runs a half size smaller. After my first experience with Christian Louboutin, I knew I would need a 37. I went with a 37.5 this time and they fit me perfectly.


At last, my search has ended! I am head over heels in love with these shoes. They are practically as well as fun. I can't wait to pair them with my future outfits =)

Have a great week!

  3. those are really interesting, with the raised up 3D scales. i think i would personally opt for a boring pair of nude CLs but you found a very unique pair!

  22. wow love it Sydney! I bought my first Loubies last year but had to return it because I didnt love it ! So glad to see you found the "right" pair for you!

  23. Gorgeous, I really love the texture of it. I am always drawn to CL due to their unique red soles but have not pulled the plug yet. Maybe one day =)

  24. I may be incorrect, but my understanding of watersnake is that is actually a very inexpensive snake that is often used to make "exotic" skin products that are more affordable than, say, python or anaconda. I do have a python bag and the scales on your shoes look authentic to me, but I only have one pair of snakeskin shoes and I'm no expert. If I were you, I'd double check, because if they are snakeskin they need to be treated differently to avoid curling and flaking. They're gorgeous, congrats!

  25. @Anonymous Thank you for taking the time and explaining. This is my first pair of snakeskin shoes so I am not 100% sure. I will have to do some research on that and see what I come up with. Thanks again =)

  26. Oh I LOVE these! They are gorgeous, great buy. I can't believe I'm saying this but the price isn't "too" bad for exotics either - I love my python Loubs, they are by far my most special pair and your nude color makes them so versatile. Enjoy!
