's "Lady Peep" pumps—the designer's signature platform peep-toe pumps that boast sky-high 150 mm stiletto heels—are getting tech-inspired this fall. BetaBeat featured
this special-edition iteration of the celeb-favorite silhouette—but pointed out that the $1,695 shoe isn't exactly what it claims to be.
The Louboutin e-shop describes the shoes:
Let your soles do the talking in this extraordinary version of our infamous "Lady Peep". Her intricate satin & embroidery pattern was modeled after modern day computer code. Monsieur Louboutin turned an elaborate programming language into a geek chic pump this season and the results are simply stunning.
Only problem? That stuff on the shoe isn't computer code—it's a "circuit diagram of a computer chip."
Ah well. Just goes to show that fashion and tech don't always see eye-to-eye. But hey, the shoe is pretty sweet.
