Shoe heaven: behold Christian Louboutin’s colour-changing unicorn boots

There’s no denying it: the unicorn trend has officially landed.

Over the past few months we’ve witnessed unicorn trainers, unicorn toast and unicorn frappuccinos stomp all over our Instagram feeds. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s even an entire range of unicorn bakes begging to have their heads bitten off.

But if you’re going to embrace a trend, you might as well do it properly – and by properly, we mean in Christian Louboutin heels.

The designer has created a pair of shimmering, sequinned boots that at first glance appear to be silver. However, when you rub your hand over them they magically transform into a glittering rainbow of kaleidoscopic goodness.

Confused? Watch below:

I'm calling this "Unicorn skin." Fancy new sequined boots @louboutinworld of course. #unicornskin #ChristianLouboutin #fw17 #sequinedboots

The first look at the shoes was shared by stylist Samantha McMillen, who has worked with the likes of Dakota Fanning and Carey Mulligan.

She uploaded a video of herself stroking the heels, which she proclaimed to be made of “Unicorn skin”, although we reckon they could pass for mermaid scales as well (time for a mermaid trend, anyone?)

There’s no word yet on when the boots will be released, or how much they will cost – stay tuned for further details. They’re almost as mysterious as the mythical creature itself...
