There was a period, when Christian Louboutin shoes were available with baby blue soles. These were related with an intention to enable “something blue” for brides-to-be but was very short-lived due to certain trademark issues.
The red-sole treatment was born more out of accident than design. One afternoon, a prototype Louboutin was working on just didn’t “pop.” An assistant was painting her nails at the time.
“So I grabbed her nail polish and painted the sole and it becomes this red sole, which became my trademark years after,” he said. “Red means love, passion, blood.”
They are a work of art and someday I hope to own a pair of these red soled babies.
