This week, FN’s guest sneaker columnist Stacey Griffith — senior master instructor at SoulCycle — tries on spiked Christian Louboutin white and bright neon sneakers.
“Again mister Christian drops a bomb on the sneaker world with this spunky color combo! I’m always drawn to white studs for summer— and these add a major pop to any party, and boy do these shoes want to party. I received these as a gift (thanks to my sole’ girl) and I was immediately smitten by the perfectly placed strips of hot pink and chartreuse, backed with a touch of grey on the heel. This perfect color combination sends me smiling!
The one thing you have to watch out for with these shoes is the break-in period. I recommend wearing a thick sock for the first couple of wears, as the inside leather can be a bit blistery if you fly your toes bareback like I do. You may want to add even more punch to the show by popping in a bright pink lace, or even lime green.
A crisp pair of Balmain white pants and a hot pink Givenchy t-shirt will give you that St. Tropez look. I will definitely be packing these into my TUMI for the south of France this summer!”
