The red sole.
The red soles of a pair of Loubotins is what sets it apart from the rest. The red sole is exclusive to only Loubotins, sort of like a copyright issue thing. This gives it prestige.
In a pair of Loubotins, you would feel like a different person, a changed man. It gives you style, it gives you elegance, it gives you sensuality. In a pair of Loubotins, you exude wealth and class. A pair of Loubotins is so easily recognised due to the red soles, and the quality is unquestionably and undoubtedly high.
The price factor is an issue though, and I can't quite justify spending so much on a pair of shoes now. Maybe in a few years, when I'm (hopefully) raking in the big bucks.
Christian Louboutin is often associated with luxury female apparel and shoes. I used to have that perception as well. It was only until recently that I realised their men's clothing line is pretty good as well.
I bought a pair of red cadaques for a rather reasonable price. Quality was there, and luckily for me, it was apparently the last pair they had in stock! Salespeople there are friendlier than those at LV (it's a stereotype, but they often turn their nose up at you if you look below the age of 25). Not only did the sales staff attend to my request, he also provided valuable information when I asked him.
I visited the outlet at Orchard just 2 weeks ago for I had decided to lay my hands on a pair of Roller-Boat Men's Flats, and boy was I blown away by their service! Staff were primed and preened, and were very polite to me even though I had trouble finding the right size and they were SO gracious when they had to leave to retrieve a pair that fit me! They even checked every inch of my pair to ensure quality! All service staff should take these people as role-models, really. It was a very pleasant visit to Louboutin!
Christian Louboutin's professed goal is to make "make a woman look sexy, beautiful, to make her legs look as long as [he] can. As he brought back the dying high-heels fashion in 1990s and 2000s with his 4 or higher inch heels, he was also declared the Most Prestigious Women's Shoes in 2007,2008 and 2009.
Celebrity clients include Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian. Sarah Jessica Parker even wore a pair of shoes by Louboutin for her wedding. The classic Louboutin that a has red-lacquered shoe base, is definitely one that cannot be mistaken. From far, the eye-catching sole of a high-heel would make it possible to immediately spot a louboutin above the average shoes, which is probably what makes it such a "status' object.
The designs are very elegant and mostly very eye-catching, with the bright colours of the glitter on the shoes. The prices though, are really beyond and over the budget which makes it too much of a luxury to own a pair. That being said, it definitely would not harm looking around in the shop and trying some pairs just to dream about getting married in a pair of louboutins.
