01/08/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Can you please identify the flats that Katie Holmes is wearing on pg. 16 of Star Tracks in this weeks People (dated Jan. 8th)? Photo taken in LA on Dec. 18 with Connor. Thank you!Marianne

Katie Holmes does have enviable style, especially her shoes! This time the young mom and new bride stepped out in a sensible — but very fabulous — pair of flats while delivering gifts and a Christmas tree to an underprivileged family in L.A. The patent leather mary jane-like flats are part of Christian Louboutin’s autumn/winter 2006 collection and are available in limited sizes and an array of colors including black, leopard and Katie’s for $525 by calling Barneys New York at 212-826-8900. To get the same look for a steal check out this Dolce Vita pair for only $88 at

they are cute shoes

faith on

these shoes are kinda cute, but katie holmes and “enviable style” do not belong in the same sentence.

Stephanie on

Love the shoes, but too expensive. I saw similar black ones in Macys and Lord and Taylor.

Jason on

Well that’s YOUR opinion faith.

katie on

Enviable style shouldn’t appear as overly scripted. The color is nice but they don’t look like they support her foot at all, no cushion and they bow-out like boats. Wouldn’t something like sneakers have been more appropriate? Just because you can easily afford something, it doesn’t mean it’s always the best choice. Is it really giving when your shoes cost more than the gifts?

KJ on

I don’t really care for the shoes but they look cute on Katie.

Annie on

Agree with post by “katie” about expensive, designer shoes not being appropriate wear for “helping” the underprivileged… unless it was actually just a photo op… ?

night on

They make her feet look as though she cramed them into a a pair two sizes too small. They look painful. Look at her left foot, it appears her foot is overflowing the shoe. I bet she has blisters when she takes off these things.

Jenn on

I love the shoes. Wish I had a spare $525 to spend on them though! Rent or shoes, rent or shoes…hmmm!

KT fr Cda on

a very expensive ugly pair of shoes.

sarah on

all she does is spend her money (or tom’s?) and wastes it. i hope she invests in other things like stocks than shoes.

pstewart on

The shoes look cute, but her feet looks crammed in them,but it’s cheaper red flats on,Katie loves her wealthy husband and shoes, who could blame her!

faith on

exactly, jason. this is a blog. you look at a picture, read the comments and then make your own. thus MY opinion. last time i checked that’s what this is for. you like her style? good for you.

Kristin on

I don’t really care for them- for me at least. Color is nice though.

KT fr Cda on

You said it Faith. That’s what I say. If he doesn’t like your comment then tough!

C on

I normally like flat shoes, but I don’t like these. They look like her feet don’t fit well in them either. The toe cleavage looks strange. Nice color though.

Alice on

$525 for a pair of shoes is nothing to a celebrity. Its pocket change. I don’t understand why people are so outraged that she didn’t wear tennis shoes while doing her charity. Who cares? She wearing flats, its not like shes trying to run around in 6 inch in the snow. And at least she is doing charity, who cares what is on her feet.

Jennifer on

They have very similar shoes at for $14.99. Look in the flats section under shoes. A much better price if you like the look….

lizz on

i think that the shoes look really good on katie. i would wear them

Emma on

i like the shoes. but as others said it looks she crammed her foot in….. but very cute!

G. Blaine on

Angelina Jolie was wearing a beautiful pair of black suede, knee high boots, which had a rounded toe and a slight platform (I think) in photos of her and Brad Pitt taking the kids to a toy store in New York City on December 12, 2006. Do you have any idea who made the boots?

Rachel on

well – not everybody is Tom Cruises (wife) EWWWW

abc123 on

They don’t look bad on her, but I wouldn’t wear them. I don’t really care for flat shoes. But I like the color.

Kristen on

Please, I could find some shoe that look just like that at nordstrom, for way cheaper than what she paid. Love flat shoes, but the little flappy thing in the front is kinda ugly though.

bianca on

i think that they look good on her and that i would were them too

Christina on

Does anyone else in the world have a problem that she’s wearing $525 shoes to go visit poor people?

leslie on

Hi there, Angie Jolie was wearing a black suede knee boot shown in a picture of her picking up son Maddox from school in New Orleans. Anyone have an idea who they might be by. thanks

Joanne on

The sad part of it all is she probably won’t wear them again!

Lori on

I just bought a new home and I love the chairs featured in Courtney Cox’s living room on the show Cougar Town? Can you tell me where to find them or something similiar?

Thanks! I’ve looked everywhere, there is even a blog about it online, but nobody can find out the answer. I appreciate it.
