I thought it'd be fun to post pics of my one and only pair a year apart from when I got them. I took the first pics after I bought them, when the sole was still shiny and immaculate (and SLIPPERY!) and again, exactly one year later. I almost fell on my butt when I tried them on... I really wasn't expecting them to be that slippery!



Ah, to be red and shiny.



But it's even better to be well-loved. Monsieur Louboutin said so himself.

Got any signed shoes? Anyone else from the graffiti club?

Ooh! I have signed shoes and graffiti shoes, but not signed graffiti shoes. Can I post pictures anyway?

Sure! I really need to get the heels redone on my ballerines... I was a little disappointed at how quickly the rubber wore away, but then again, I'm a hard walker. Can a cobbler do that?

^^Definitely! You might want to consider buy some red Vibram soles, they'll probably last longer than just getting them painted, or whatever it is that they do.

I've got a pair of graffit Mrs. Boxe. They're not signed, but perhaps it will be one of the pairs I have Msr. Louboutin sign in the future. He spoke glowingly of the graffiti line.

Yeah, those graffiti Mrs. Boxe have a special place in my heart because they are completely out of my element, but it's that very difference from everything else I have that makes me love them even more. I am glad for your kind words girls.
