Christian Louboutin: the genius behind those iconic red soles and the answer to all your fun and flirty footwear prayers.
In 1976, during a visit to the Musée National des Arts d'Afrique et d'Océanie, Christian Louboutin saw a sign from Africa that forbid entrance to women wearing high heels due to fear that they could damage the wood flooring. This, he claims, along with an interview he saw from Sophia Loren, was the start of his obsession with footwear. In 1991, having worked for several years together with Roger Vivier, Christian Louboutin launched his first Parisian salon and helped bring the stiletto back into fashion, renowned for his mostly 12cm + designs. With the objective to "make a woman look sexy, beautiful, to make her legs look as long as [he] can", Louboutin has a clear understanding of what the perfect shoe is capable of. With that signature red sole, Louboutin offers some of the most coveted and sought-after shoes in the world. From the ‘Pigalle’ to the ‘Very Privé’, if timeless sophistication is what you’re looking for, Christian Louboutin is never one to disappoint.
No matter what the season or time of day, you simply can’t go wrong with an iconic pair of pumps from Christian Louboutin. Easily identifiable by the signature red leather sole, each pair has playful yet seductive appeal. The tried-and-tested classic pointed ‘Pigalle Follies’ are back again and whether you choose the modest 55mm or the bold 100mm heel, they’ll finish your look on a sharp note. When day turns to night, one of the many pairs featuring metal spikes will lend a tough-luxe, powerful edge. Then just top off your look with one of the glossy patent clutches. Christian Louboutin has something for everybody!
