Christian Louboutin: the must-have shoes!

The famous red soled shoes have a strong worldwide reputation. Stars from Rihanna to Arielle Dombasle wear Christian Louboutin shoes as well as girls from theCrazy Horse magazine. The reason for its success? Elegance and comfort.

Since 1981, Christian Louboutin has embodied the art of the curved shoe. The famous red soled shoes - varying between 12cm and 16cm in height - were first worn by dancers in the °Folies Bergère cabaret: Christian Louboutin was only 17 years old at the time.

From then on, things started to happen for Christian Louboutin. Charles Jourdan, the inventor of the needle heel became of one his mentors. He then collaborated with Chanel and Dior and opened his first boutique in Paris - then two, three... before conquering the world.

Givenchy, Gaultier, Yves Saint-Laurent and Lanvin all worked with the high heel genius, attracted by the red leather, which evokes love and passion - his trademark.

Of course, Christian Louboutin created his own signature in 1991.

Two thousand pairs of "Pigalle" heels are sold every day throughout the world. The production secret? More than 100 design alterations are made to ensure a wonderful feeling of weightlessness for the wearer.

The gap, between the top of the heel and the platform, never exceeds 8cm. Therefore, Louboutin shoes are fashionable yet comfortable. They are every girl's dream and sure to keep men on their toes. In 20 years, Louboutin shoes have become the symbol of the high heel: chic and sexy.

Two collections come out each year, the shoes and boots are made from mules and the sandals are made from satin, leather, lace or fur.

Since 2013, Louboutin has even created a make-up line allowing you to put on lipstick and colour your cheeks... red of course.
