”These heels are candy for the feet; they’re for pleasure, not practicality.” Said by the man who creates shoes my ass fa sho can’t afford but can certainly dream of. I’d take a couple blisters for a pair of “red bottoms” any day of the week. This man is so interesting, and surely deserving of recognition.
The red bottom soles concept came about one night when Mr. Louboutin was working on one of his designs and felt like something was missing.. he saw his office assistant painting her nails bright red, so he took the bottle and… bada boom bada bang. Multi-million dollar shoe company based off a red sole in the making!
Truth be told, I’ll probably never own a pair of Loubs, only because I can’t fathom paying more than a thousand dollars for a pair of shoes. But for those who can, I truly get why they feel justified in such a purchase. The label and red bottoms are and will continue to be timelessly iconic. The design is structured with tremendous care and the man creating them talks of these beauties as captivating masterpeices. And they are. The women who wear them slip them on instantly feel hot and sultry and full of sex.
Not every man will describe a fashion treasure like this so passionately, but at least the concept is out there.
Case in point, when Marie Claire magazine asked Christian what is so sexy about heels, he responded: “One moves more slowly in heels. Walking fast is neither sexy nor engaging.. if you’re walking in heels, you’ve got more time. It’s much more attractive.”
When asking my boyfriend why he finds heels sexy… “Because of the ass. Perks up the ass.”
