Spiderweb Heels

Recently several shoe designers have been inspired by spiderwebs.

Arachnophobia or not, these beautiful heels will ensnare major attention.

Christian Louboutin created a crystal embellished web d’Orsay pump in his latest Fall 2011 collection.

Mr Louboutin describes his fascination with spiderwebs in a video interview with CNN saying that his design was influenced by a scientific study on spiders.

Yves Saint Laurent has also been bitten by the spider trend and created a dramatic web wedge.

This heel features many thin suede straps, a metallic gold leather covered wedge and an adorable buckle charm.

Roger Vivier has designed a very original ‘Spider’ sandal in his Fall 2011 collection.

This satin heel is available in two color combinations; pink or black & gold.

Even though we will have to wait for the ‘Spider’ to be available in retail, model Jessica Stam has already worn these heel to the MET Gala.

Kirsten Dunst was spotted at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival wearing Jimmy Choo ‘Ontario’ strappy suede sandals. These sandals have web-like straps that wrap around the ankle.

Charlize Theron was also spotted recently wearing Dior Paradis sandals with a spiderweb-like detail.

      Even after writing this I keep seeing the spider influence everywhere – saw a spider heel by Zanotti too!

    Roger Vivier’s are really beautiful, except the name, I’m so afraid of spiders…

    They look cool. Stam and Charlize kind of look alike here.
