Christian Louboutin Strassed Shoes

Here's a repost from my other blog:

I am crazy for shoes and I will never say no to a chance of owning another one. A couple of weeks back I found a Christian Louboutin shoe and I fell in-love with it. Oh yes, I am speaking of the red-sole shoe that's a favorite of Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian to name a few.

Shoe so sexy!!!

Christian Louboutin's trademark glossy red soles are an undisputed stamp of fashion excellence. Since the launch of his exquisite eponymous label in 1991, the French designer has stayed true to his goal - to 'make shoes that are like jewels'. From razor-sharp stilettos to lace-up boots and studded sneakers, Christian Louboutin is every woman's go-to for heavenly heels and covetable accessories.

While salivating on the throngs of these red soles shoes (the trademark was registered on January 1, 2008, almost six months after the action was initiated), I happen to read about the talented Joseph LiMandri who can be commissioned to strass(crystallize) your favorite pair of high-end pumps, flats, sandals, or even boots. He has a blog and an Etsy store in case you would be interested to look at his creations too.


I think I want a strassed shoe for my wedding... :-) Maybe something that looks like this:

Shoe Designer Feature: Christian Louboutin

Louboutin wants his shoes to be worn by customers who eat real food.

With several swoops of his pen, he had managed to make Blahnik’s princessy slingbacks look as if they were meant for ladies who spend their days eating charity lunches of chicken salad and melon balls. The Louboutin woman might order a rare hamburger. “I’ll do shoes for the lady who lunches, but it would be, like, a really nasty lunch, talking about men,” Louboutin said. “But where I draw the line, what I absolutely won’t do, is the lady who plays bridge in the afternoon!

One thing I detest, I have to say, is when a shoe is too soft, and it’s molding to the foot,” Louboutin said. “This is quite disgusting. And I really, really hate incredibly long shoes, where the last is very pointy, almost like Aladdin.

What's your favorite Louboutin shoe design?
