Here’s a curious leedle story that we don’t think you’ll be able to resist adding your opinion to . . . As we mentioned yesterday, trade journal Footwear News held a poll to determine the official SEXIEST shoe there is from a shortlist of 23. And the winner was  . . . these rather exquisite mesh crystal pumps with a (but, of course) super high high heel from none other than Christian Louboutin. How do we feel about this? 

We can certainly see how beautiful the shoe is - it's two parts bridal to one part Cinderella, for sure. But, is this the sexiest shoe IN THE WORLD?

And let's think of the kicks that seared their way onto the fashwan consciousness in the past year or so, (including plenty of Christian Louboutins, the maker of the winning pair). We’ll have – collaboration, some plum-coloured Nicholas Kirkwood for Liberty , Charlotte Olympia beauties, some Jimmy Choos and the YSL ‘Mohawk’ numbers. And that's just off the top of our head... Not even mentioning Giuseppe Zanotti or Sergio Rossi!

And, dare we suggest, that some of the most memorable shoes of the season – the Chanel Yeti boots and the Burberry shearling-lined aviator boots don’t necessarily fall into the ‘sexy shoe' category at all, but are, in fact, clumpy boots.

So does this go to show that sexy and cool can never be the same ? OR do you agree with the thousands who voted for the crystal-embellished Cinderella slippers ?
