Save Vs Splurge: These Caged Heels HAVE To Be On Your Christmas Wishlist!
Almost every other girl is obsessed with shoes — whether it’s boots, flats, brogues, heels…the list of the kind of shoes one girl can own is limitless. Don’t believe me? Well, then check this to reassure yourself. After all, isn’t life too short to wear really boring shoes! Well, spicing things up during the Christmas and party season, we’ve brought to you the various kind of footwear you can wear during the festivities. So, one of the top styles on my radar are caged shoes, which look totally LIT! Just in case this came across your mind…no they aren’t a BDSM type footwear that help indulge in foot fetishes (no judgement here though!). The ‘caged’ term derives from the pattern the front of the shoes create. These are delicate cuts and designs that make the entire shoe look like a cage, giving your feet an elegant and sensuous touch.
Christian Louboutin Caged Sandals (Rs 67,500)*
*Available at Christian Louboutin in Mumbai across India.
Christian Louboutin is a name synonymous with footwear. The iconic red sole, intricate handcrafted work and stylish designs are what every shoe lover like me droooool over. I mean, if you can spot Louboutin from miles away…your love for shoes is undeniable. One of their more recent collections, Louboutin have designed ‘caged’ heels that are meant for the sensuous, sexy woman. The caged heels are actually a reference to curves of a woman’s leg and is also inspired by the burlesque fantasy. Since it is Christmas and you are looking for something to spoil yourself with (or someone else), this would be the most ideal gift to keep hidden under your tree. Please do note — act surprised if you are treating yourself! After all, ’tis the season of giving, right?
If you are a bit strapped for cash (thanks demonetization) and you still want these gorgeous heels, fret not — we bring to you the caged heel that will not burn a hole in your bag. The Intoto Caged Heels are pretty similar to the Louboutins, barring the copyrighted red sole and a slightly more subtle colour — these heels provide a similar effect as the other pair. With that cute peek-a-boo sort of effect that the cutouts provide, the Intoto caged heel is your cheaper excuse to owning a pair of metallic heels this season.
