I love Louboutin’s model pictures; it doesn’t show the face but the shoes. Here you see a model carrying a pair of sophisticated pumps from the latest collection. It shows elegant, classy and confident.
The shoe is named the Christian Louboutin Confusa Pumps, besides the 100mm heels and the ultra chic colombe nappa laminao, it also features labyrinthine leather laces all the way to the top. Mixed with the colors gold and beige, refined with the brand’s famous red-soles, these shoes are absolutely to-die-for.
Pair it with your evening dress or for the night-outs, from the Spring Summer 2015 Collection, priced at $1,195 USD at Christian Louboutin Zappos Replica e-store.
More recently, red bottoms have attracted glamour and sex appeal into the shoe. Valentino Garavani, the perennially tanned and amazing Italian couturier, has intermittently produced red-heeled shoes since 1969 to go with his famous elegant red gowns. In the 1970s, Yves Saint Laurent — famous for his gender-bending, hot fashions that empowered women — established that the monochrome shoe, which can be entirely one color — from the leather top to the interior to the heel and the sole. YSL produced purple, blue and, yes, red monochrome shoes across the ’70s and ’80s. Another famous shoemaker, Charles Jourdan — beneath whom Louboutin apprenticed from the ’80s — additionally painted the bottoms of his shoes red.Today, a flash of a red sole not only cries “Louboutin” — it also reveals something about the wearer. She’s, like her Renaissance precursors, chubby or upwardly mobile. (Louboutin’s shoes cost between $400 and $6,000.) The red makes her feel strong (such as John the Fearless or YSL’s girls), as well as sexy and maybe even naughty. In its profile of the shoe designer, the New Yorker called the red soles “a marketing gimmick that renders an otherwise identical product instantly recognizable.” Yet for most designers and customers — and even, most likely, for Louboutin — that the red sole is much more than that.
