We've not seen Christian Louboutin tackle tartan very often before now, so it's interesting to see what he's pulled out of the hat on this occasion, with the traditional plaid patterning on these strappy block-heeled ankle booties. Anita 85 has just dropped at Net-a-Porter, where it retails for £945. Striking a punk-luxe pose, the shoes stray just slightly into Vivienne Westwood's territory, but there's a distinctive Louboutin look to these shoes that true fans will love.

The shoes, which are based around a slipper style with their high 'tongue', are a really interesting take on the trend and the black silver-capped straps add a tough touch that harks back to some of Louboutin's biker style boots. We particularly love the silver capping on both the heel and the toe, which lends a really hard-edged look of quality to this shoe, which is probably our ultimate footwear crush as of this morning.
