Christian Louboutin founded his eponymous brand in 1991. One day, he borrowed his assistant's nail polish to paint the soles of a pair of shoes – and the rest is history. Christian Louboutin is now a household name, and the red bottoms have become synonymous with luxury and glamour.
Another recurring element in his designs is the spiked studs. However, it was not solely the red bottoms and studs that solidified Louboutin's place in history as a wardrobe staple for the modern woman. From the materials used to the craftsmanship, every shoe is a work of art.
In an interview with The New York Times, he stated, "I probably almost name all my shoes by characters or by attitudes or by just anecdotes which are coming in my head." Whether you want to dress up and play pretend or feel confident and beautiful – just as Louboutin intended – grab a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes.
From sneakers and flats to heels and boots, there is a style for every occasion. Some of the most iconic Christian Louboutin heels are the Hot Chick, Pigalle, Kate, So Kate, and New Very Privé. Other styles like the Galaviti are available as both heels and flats. The most coveted sneakers for women are the low-top Vieira 2 and the high-top Lou Spikes sneakers.
The funny thing about wardrobes is that even when there does not seem to be any space left in them, you can always find room for that special item anyway. Although best known for its shoes, Christian Louboutin has expanded its offerings to bags, small leather goods, accessories, and – of course – a beauty range including red nail polish.
