CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN RODITA HEELS
Zipper details were kind of a "trend" that never really took off. The reason? It is overwelming if done with multiple pieces. My suggestion is to follow the same rules you would do with studs and animal prints- keep it one piece per outfit. I have seen it done beautifully in graphic zipper prints on tees, zipper jewelry, and most importantly, shoes. Christian Louboutin's Rodita Zip Platforms are perfect but unfortunately are no longer available in black. You can however pick up Jessica Simpson's "Tansas" Sandal. It has the same zipper strap detail, but Jessica Simpson's design is slightly more of a platform than a stiletto. The buckle at the ankle is also larger larger and the zipper straps are much wider. This could be a good thing because it means it will give your foot more support and your walk more stability.
