Since we are on the subject of metallic braided shoes, I have to post one of my favorite shoes. The Christian Louboutin Marilou features gold metallic braided nappa leather throughout. This gorgeous shoe has a triple band fastened together with a ring braid over the toe.

I love everything about these shoes, including the adorable ankle strap. Of course these are pricey – $870 at Barneys New York, but dang they look good.

If you feel like spending a chunk of your paycheck on a new pair of shoes, I definitely think these are a fine choice.
