Behold, the Christian Louboutin Lady Daf Platform Mary Jane Pumps. Blogger and style icon, Karla Deras was the first person that I saw with a pair of these (here) super tall, and seriously intimidating looking pumps. The minute I saw them I knew that shoes had reached a dangerous new height and just like an old catholic woman, I grabbed my rosaries and prayed that Karla would be able to traverse sidewalks, stairs and slick floors safely. I also feared that like the Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s, that bloggers everywhere would follow and that an epidemic of broken ankles would plague the blogosphere.
Almost a year has passed and these wicked awesomeness has shown up on the feet of many celebrities but only on the feet of few in the blogging community. The style had also evolved during the last year. Dafs are now available in mary janes or as pumps (as shown below) and in a variety of colors and prints.
However, it wasn’t the height or fear of broken ankles that kept these shoes from off of the feets of bloggers, it was the price. Yes, my friends, the Christian Louboutin Lady Daf Platform Mary Jane Pumps retails for $1,595 (one thousand five hundred and ninety-five dollars). That’s just the price for the nude. I found a black python pair that retails for $2,595.00 ( here). However, I guess the design patent for these have expired because it’s raining Daf knock-offs everywhere.
Here are a few:
I guess we’ll be seeing more of these on blogger pages and on reggae dancehall stargirl’s feet.
