Louboutin inspired heels.
I don't have an extra $1000 to spend on a pair of Louboutin shoes so I decided to DIY a pair! I have been wanting to spike my shoes for awhile and after having absolutely no luck finding the spikes I wanted in a store I went ahead and ordered them online.

Smaller spikes would make these shoes more "wearable" so I agree, but at the same time I really like the wow factor and response I get when I wear them as is.

I'd prefer smaller spikes but I do like this idea

Glad you could find it, I used the 1 inch spikes and they are much larger than I was expecting them to be, so use a ruler, unlike me!
