The infamous red sole, screaming luxury and class, may quite possibly be the most recognisable shoe to ever step foot in the fashion industry (see what we did there?!). Christian Louboutin shoes, with their Pantone 18-1663 TPX red sole, have caught our attention.
The globally iconic red sole was born in 1993 after a prototype shoe was found a little dreary by Mr Louboutin. An assistant nearby was painting her nails a bold red at the time. This caught Mr Louboutin’s eye. Thus came about the unique idea of using this colour to cover the dull black sole. The vibrant Louboutin red sole was born.
