Created by Christian Louboutin in collaboration with Angelina Jolie for her recent press tour, the limited edition Malangeli shoes are now available for pre-order at the brand’s five flagship stores in Paris, Hong Kong, London, New York and West Hollywood.
A Louboutin spokesperson describes the limited-edition shoe design as “dangerous and altogether seductive” with “an illusion of magic” thanks to the nude mesh.
Available in black and red, the shoes have a twisted heel that calls to mind a curl of smoke for an evil touch. Shoe addicts will have to shell out $1,400 to pre-order a pair, with delivery starting on October 20.
But since Angelina Jolie is involved, the initiative will also benefit a good cause: all proceeds will go to SOS Children’s Villages, which works to improve the lives of orphaned and abandoned children.
