CL FW10 Ronfifi 100 in Black Nappa Leather – AKA My FIERCE 2 Booties
This is a beautifully crafted pair of booties that made its first appearance on the FW10 Ruffian runway show with the Ronfifi 100 booties and OTK boots both in navy flannel. It then went on to be featured in numerous magazine ads and was worn by various celebrities. The collection was available in various textures: Navy flannel, Military green flannel, Black Nappa, Brown Nappa, and Mustard Suede; with polished gold, antique silver, and pyramidal buttons.
I originally tried on the OTK style called Ronfifi 100 Supra, but the shaft was too long and really did not suit me. The knee-high Alta version was not available for me to purchase. I ended up with this pair of booties which is completely my style. I love booties because they’re so much easier to get in and out of and they look great with anything. The leather is very delicate and soft, so I’m more careful with them. I get lots of compliments on them and would recommend them to everyone! They’re my 2nd pair of FIERCE boots! lol
The shoes are cousins to the more dramatic Ronfifi 100 Supra and Alta, all of which are successors from last season’s famous Supra Fifre 120 and Fifre 120 booties (see pictures below for clarification of these styles). The shoes from both seasons are so widely popular because the elastic closures are really friendly and flatter most people’s legs since CL boots are made for women with thin calves. Take me for example, many people people are surprised that I can’t wear CL’s leg defining boots. My mid-calves measure the thickest at 14 inches and despite CL’s description saying their circumference is also 14 inches, I still cannot wear his boots.

I’m sorry if I’m harsh, but she just has the wrong vibe with everything going on in her wardrobe (not to mention her life…). These boots are meant to be FIERCE, not cute-girly-wannabe-somewhat-tough-with-that-leather-skirt-and-glam-it-up-with-an-Hermes-Birkin. Anyhow, she just looks really skanky…

CL FW10 Lady Claude 120 in Patent Tortoise Leather
These are my absolute favorite pair of CL shoes for their SHAPE! The feminine curvature is just perfection! Of course, they’re not the easiest pair of heels to wear because of its steep pitch, but I’m willing to suck it in because it’s just such a beautiful style that oozes sex appeal. Someone once asked me to compare these with my Jimmy Choo Quiet in Patent Leopard. Which ones do I prefer? That’s a no brainer, the CL’s of course! I’ll definitely give points to JC’s patent leather because I really like how it has small amounts of gold shimmer that catch the light whereas CL’s has a darker tortoise pattern. However, JC’s has a weird pitch once you pass 3 inches, so I find they’re harder to walk in, especially with a thinner heel it doesn’t feel that stable to me. CL’s are more comfortable imo.
CL FW10 Mater Claude 85 in Patent Black Leather
The mother of the Lady Claude heels, the Mater Claude is a great pair of heels for work or for anyone who prefers a smaller heel. I have to say that I find the lower heel harder to walk in, but maybe it’s just that I’m too used to 4″ +++ heels. Funny thing with me is that I’ve never fell on my really high heels, but all sorts of misfortunes and embarrassing events have happened to me on lower heels, flip-flops, and flats lol.
