After staring at the Architeck photos again & again, I have to say IMO the black one (with the red contrast) is the best combo for this shoe. Really chic...and different. CL's nude color always comes out better in patent than in kid leather (the nude kid leather in my experience gets dirty in no time), plus the heel part on the nude just reminds me of Brian Atwood shoes for some reason.

I just placed my order and I spent so much!!!! Mostly, b/c I haven't owned any CL and had to order in 2 sizes each pair. I think I may need to sell my kidney for these shoes :P

I got these.....

My feet are wide, and my sizing differ tremendously. Tennis shoes I'm 6 to 6.5. Heels with rounded toes 6.5 to 7. Not too pointy shoes 6.5 to 7.5 Any advice?

Welcome to the madness of Louboutins! My feet tend to be wider as well. I pretty much go by what you said--rounder toe you can do smaller and pointy toes go with a bigger size. I think it is wise that you got a couple of sizes--you can just return the ones that do not work for you.

I don't think they would look ugly. See, my feet are on the wider side, so I know that no matter what there will be tightness. I just opted to go a half size larger to allow for a little bit of room.

Here is what a half size larger looks on me without heel strips (37.5):


And this is my true CL size in 37 (I take the VPs in this size):


I know they are two different angles and two different shoes, but since they are very similarly cut I hope it will help in some way.
They look great! Also, what are those snakeskin shoes on the other foot! TDF! Please do tell me !!!:tup:

cjy--they are the simple pump in python. I last saw them at Saks in NYC and Las Vegas and CL boutiques in NYC.

Thanks, they are just gorgeous. I assumed they were CL's but wanted to make sure and get the name/style.
