A Little History of the “Red Bottom Shoes”

Louboutin or “red bottom shoes” as they are so well known for is the brain child of Christian Louboutin. Christian Louboutin was born in 1963 in France. He had a fascination with high heels as a teenager. After he was expelled form school at age 16 he started working for famed shoe designer Charles Jourdan who designed shoes for Dior. He launched his line of shoes in the early 1990’s and added the red bottoms to the soles in 1993. His shoes were initially worn by royalty and celebrities. He later has expanded his fashion line to include men’s footwear, handbags, nail polish and fragrances! His high heels are amazing. The line also includes some athletic shoes as well.

FACT: Today Louboutin heels cost $400-$6,000 and the brand sells about 500,000 pairs of footwear each year.

FACT: Madonna wore Louboutin heels in some of her videos.
