Wish-List Kicks: 11 Christian Louboutin Shoes We'd Eat Ramen For

As they say in the retail biz, shoes are recession-proof. Even when the economy dips, we ladies will scrimp, scrounge, and, yes, eat dollar noodles for weeks on end to stay standing tall in our beloved shoes. The most coveted kicks on every lady's list? A pair of iconic red-soled heels from the legendary French designer Christian Louboutin.
As usual, Loubis bring the glamour — bedazzled glitter pumps, snakeskin boots, and gold galore — all set atop some of the most ankle-breaking stiletto heels we've seen (hey, no one ever said glamour was easy).
Read on to see our top picks of the season — and tell us, what would you give up to get these shoes?
