Christian Louboutin Hot Chick 130mm

Christian Louboutin Hot Chick StilettomeupIf you know Christian Louboutin shoes, especially the pointy toe styles like Pigalles or So Kate’s, the heel will go as tall as 120mm. They have no platform and your entire foot is practically touching the ground. This makes it “uncomfortable” for people to wear, or if they do, they normally wear them out to dinner or to “sit down” events.

Now I’m not going to lie to you and tell you that they don’t hurt. Matter of fact, all heels are uncomfortable if you wear them long enough. Sure, I have heels that are about 100mm that are more comfortable than others and that I could wear for longer than 4 hours. I also have higher heels, even as high as 160mm that I will wear for just as long, but they tend to have a pretty thick platform which is why it makes it easier to walk in them. It all depends on the shape of the shoe, how thin or thick the heel is, platform or no platform, the shape of your own foot, the arch of your foot, long toes or short toes and many other factors.

I saw a picture of the Christian Louboutin Hot Chick shoes on their Instagram page a few weeks ago. The heel looked taller than the usual 120mm pigalle. Simply for that fact alone I knew I had to get them. Will I wear them to run errands or walk around town? No. But they are beautiful; they are different; they are taller than usual and that makes it a collection piece to me. Plus, I love me a challenge!

I have a sales rep in NY that normally finds all of the styles I want. I sent her on a hunt for these. She said they run half to one full size bigger than usual. I wasn’t surprised. See in pigalles or So Kate’s, or Pivichic, (or any style that is pointy toe and narrow), I go half a size down if it’s 120mm and normal size if it’s 100mm. The 120mm makes my foot slide in and out in the back so going half a size smaller gives it that tight grip and it doesn’t slide. It’s great! It does take wearing them a few times to stretch the leather enough around my toes, but after 3 or 4 times it’s a perfect fit.

The Hot Chicks however, because they are 130mm I can see why you have to go a size or half a size bigger. 130mm is pretty tall for a shoe with no platform. This kind of heel height requires your foot to be arched more than usual, and bent even more so than your other heels. It’s like standing on the tip of your toes. Think: ballerina! Because of it, your entire body weight will shift to the tip of your toes and because of it, your toes will need more room than usual. So if you were to go down in size, or stay the same size in this particular shoe, you will fit in the back of the shoe, but the front will KILL you. It will be entirely too tight around the toes. So you have to go half a size to one full size bigger.

Keep in mind once again that your entire body weight is being pushed down to the tips of your toes. So your entire foot is also sliding at the very front of the shoe, leaving this way a bigger space than usual in the back. This only happens when you either start standing for a while, or when you start walking. But do not worry, your shoe won’t come off and you won’t feel like you are dragging your feet and your shoes when you wear them. I was afraid of that, until I tried them on. In pictures it looks as if they are too big on me, but in reality, had I gone even half a size down, my toes would have never fit!

Christian Louboutin sales rep recommend that you do not wear these shoes out but rather get them as a collection piece, or simply to wear inside the house (i’ll let you figure it out what that means lol). I can understand why they tell their customers that. They are hard to walk in. If you are not used to high heels in general, it would be difficult to walk in them. Your ankle may feel like it will literally break in half. So I don’t recommend purchasing them unless you are truly comfortable in heels!

Here’s a video of me wearing them 🙂

    Thanks for your comments on the 130mm. Just bought the Senorina 130 for my lady. She walks superbly in her So Kate 120mm Pumps and Booties and is excited to walk in 130mm heels. Bought them half a size up 36,5 to see if they work. Unfortunately no chance to get the Hot Chick or Hot Wave Loubs here in Europe.
