Interesting Facts

If the women's shoe has a fiery red sole, then it probably stems from the house of "Christian Louboutin". The label has made high heels and red soles its trademark, making it instantly recognizable worldwide.

Behind the label is the French designer (with Egyptian roots) Christian Louboutin, born in Paris in 1964. Louboutin had his own personal AHA effect while still in school when he saw a sign in a museum warning against wearing high heels. The slender and elongated heel shape fascinated Louboutin. He, therefore, immediately created his models and initially wanted to sell them at the Paris Ballet. But because nothing came of it, he learned the design craft from scratch with Chanel, Maud Frizon, and Yves Saint Laurent. Finally, at the beginning of the 1990s, Christian Louboutin opened his first boutique in the heart of Paris, which very quickly became an insider tip among the rich and famous. The sale of the shoes, bags, and accessories on the American market also contributed to the wide success of Christian Louboutin.

After all, Louboutin had the idea of the red soles. For the designer, his red soles, together with the high heels, are luxurious, stylish, and utterly feminine. Celebrities such as Madonna, Tina Turner, Sarah Jessica Parker, or Jennifer Lopez share a similar opinion because they belong to the permanent customer base of the brand.
