Christian Louboutin's 'Operissima' sandals are modeled on the brand's classic silhouette but "dressed up with a coquettish flair." Made in Italy from black patent-leather, they're finished with pretty white scalloped cutouts that elegantly frame your foot and ties at the ankle. The slim stiletto heel is perfectly angled and shaped to reveal the iconic red sole as you walk.
