First off, a Happy New Year to all our lovely readers! We hope you’ve come to spend a fabulous New Year’s Eve. Alright, but now let’s get back to business. Shoe business. Despite the rather simple design of the ChristianLouboutin platform espadrilles pictured below I still find myself to be quite enamored with these summer beauties. Funnily enough, these also happen to be on the lower price spectrum of a Louboutin (most Loubies start to retail at $795+), but even the rather “modest” price of $535 I simply cannot justify with my current budget. Well, a girl can dream…
Louboutins shoes GAVE inspiration for his lethal-looking stilettos from an incident that occurred in his early 20s. He had visited a museum and noticed that there was a sign forbidding women wearing sharp stilettos from entering for fear of damage to the extensive wood flooring. This image stayed in his mind, and he later used this idea in his designs. “I wanted to defy that,” Louboutin has said. “I wanted to create something that broke rules and made women feel confident and empowered.”
Louboutins has topped The Luxury Institute’s annual Luxury Brand Status Index (LBSI) for three years; the brand’s offerings were declared the Most Prestigious Women’s Shoes in 2007, 2008, and 2009
