christian-louboutin-snakeskin.jpgThe random daubing of colour all over these otherwise classic snakeskin pumps remind us a little of an abstract painting, and the patterning could not be more perfect for this summer's shimmering, multi-hued tropical looks. The cute kitten heels make them far more daywear ready than many of Louboutin's taller styles, and we can imagine pulling these on with a little skirt and pale-coloured blouse.

The shoes are available at £695 on Net-a-Porter at the moment, where you can see them looking absolutely stunning from every angle - the Louboutin-red soles work particularly nicely with the spattered rainbow bright patches. As ever, the King of Heels has managed to embrace a trend without letting it swerve him away from his usual sense of style and class, reminding us just why it is we can't get enough of his shoes. Look out for this effect on several other styles for spring/summer 2012.
