Bondage Shoes, Carrie Bradshaw, and Christian Louboutin Strappy Sandals

Definitely, a harder shoe to dress because there is  a lot going on and you don’t want to overdo it or look dominatrixy (if that’s not your area of work-if it is, more power to you!).  When it comes to dressing a bondage shoe, there are a couple schools of thought: you either need to commit to the theme or go completely opposite. Check out what I mean:

So when in doubt what is a girl to do? First of all, don’t be in “doubt” if your wearing a bondage style shoe because the shoe is meant to be worn with extraordinary confidence- like all heels but especially these. So if you are in doubt- not sure if the outfit goes together or not, take a picture of it on your (use the timer on your camera, clueless style!), look at it and make the call- go with your instinct.  If you are still not sure, put the pic on twitpic and ask your followers what they think- take everything with a grain of salt because you should always just go with you gut on the outfit. Then once you’ve decided what to wear, own it- wear it like you were born to wear it -like the badass bondage chick you are.   That’s my advice.  In essence don’t worry to much about it because shoes aren’t meant to be too serious anyway- they’re meant to be fun.

Now, on to more important things like the shoes themselves.  Here are some celebs in variations of the style:

If you don’t have about $1500 to spare on Christian Louboutin then the next best copy cat I’ve seen is by Guess:

Credenza - Black Patent


“Credenza” by Guess

And then when it comes to other bondage type shoes, these ladies are my favs for the price. You think they look hot now you must try them on and  you may just catch on fire. (cheesy, I’m so cheesy sometimes). 

Marianela - Black

Xiomara - Black/Gold Stud

Gazelle - Black Leather

Star Bound - Black

Just remember to keep it classy.
