Christian Louboutin heels are a girl’s sole mate

Christian Louboutin is a French luxury footwear brand and fashion designer who’s best known for his signature red-soled, sky high heels that have become the female footwear equivalent of a Rolex. By now, we can all spot the signature red, glossy bottom from a mile away.

Louboutin sells more than five hundred thousand pairs of shoes a year, at prices ranging from three hundred and ninety-five dollars, for an espadrille, to six thousand, for a super-platform pump covered in thousands of crystals.

The Inspiration Behind the Red Sole
Louboutin stumbled upon the red-lacquered sole design in 1993 during his third year in business. He brought his second collection of shoes into stores weeks too late and later thought of making a shoe inspired by Andy Warhol’s “Flowers.” The prototype was a pink stacked heel with a cartoonish cloth blossom with a black sole. Noticing there was something missing he grabbed the nail polish from an assistant who was painting her nails red and slathered it on the sole of the prototype. From there, the red soles became Louboutin’s signature.

Handmade in Italy
Did you know Christian Louboutin heels are made in Italy? Every pair begins with a sketch. Louboutin likes to conceive summer collections in warm locations, and winter collections in cold ones. Once the sketches are complete, they are sent to the Louboutin factory, outside Milan. A team of artisans works many hours to translate Louboutin’s pen-and-paper fantasies into three dimensions. Three weeks later, a set of prototypes will arrive at Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau – a sort of Santa’s workshop he opens for his private clients.

Elizabeth Semmelhack, of the Bata Shoe Museum, said, “He has sort of upped the ante in terms of how high the heel can soar.”
