I first saw these shoes in the Oct issue of Vogue I bought on the way to Las Vegas last week, and was beyond excited when I got to inspect the shoes for myself at a Louis Vuitton store in Las Vegas. They are so lightweight and that heel. . . They come in other colors too - silver, red, beige, etc. I however, love the gold. I love the way the toe overlaps the bottom platform.

If I had $2,000 to spend on a pair of shoes it would be these or the Ann Demeulemeester fall 2008 heeled triple lace-up boots in brown, maybe plum. Marc Jacobs did a great job with the entire collection though. I love all the wedged boots/heels, and the lack of color. Also a few of his bags for LV remind me of some of his from his Marc by Marc Jacobs bags in the sense of the embelished name logos. I hate the nylon material he used making a few of the Marc bags though.
