So I made a little discovery in an online article that may interest some of you; it’s about how Christina Louboutin shoes got that trademark cherry red sole. No, it wasn’t just a marketing-savvy move that Christian himself came up with knowing that it would earn millions. In all actuality, Louboutin started business in 1991, and two years later he decided to create a shoe that was inspired by Andy Warhol’s “Flowers”. A pink stacked heel with cartoon-looking blossoms was the prototype and something about the completed shoe was not right. He felt as though something more needed to be added to it in order to make the pattern stand out and to allow the shoe to really accentuate the theme and its coloring. The classic black sole was not cutting it, so thankfully there was a girl nearby who was painting her nails red and from that moment on, Christian Louboutin knew what the key to his success with this shoe and all those to follow would be; a red sole. He took that bottle of nail polish and painted the prototype away and low and behold, the rest of the shoe popped, and it was the missing factor he was looking for this entire time. From there on out, every pair of Christian Louboutin heels carries a trademark red sole, letting all onlookers know right away that the heels on your feet are not only pricey but a creation from one of the most respected shoe designers out there right now. As Louboutin himself says, “Men are like bulls. They cannot resist the red sole!” A pair of Louboutin heels average around $700 and they’ve been labeled “sex on a stiletto” and credited with making a woman’s legs actually appear longer. Who knew!? It makes you curious to know which brand of red nail polish started this whole phenomenon.
