The official color is called metal. I love how they are practically a mixture of Ron Ron's round toe and Elisa's slender heels, plus an interesting d'orsay design. It wasn't until I tried them on then I realised how challenging they could be. I guess the d'orsay cutout is rather shallow and I can't help but to feel that half my feet are sticking out. The shoe guy assured me that my feet are narrow enough for a good fit and that they look fine. I read on the Louboutin book that the design was an inspiration of Cinderella's shoes. The extra exposure should make one feel sexy like a princess in her glass shoes. Now it's all making sense! Buy half size down.
