Christian Louboutin ‘s career has taken some unexpected turns, including interning as a teenager at the Folies Bergere music hall theater in Paris. The experience was instrumental to the development of his design aesthetic.
In April, Mr. Louboutin told New York magazine’s The Cut, he planned to work to reflect a realistic marketplace with seven Nude shades in total, sold exclusively at New York department store Bergdorf Goodman. But, he acknowledged that there is still room to improve.
Some people want to “protect” the soles. I, personally, like the worn shoe look. As much as I love the beautiful red on the bottom of my shoe, I don’t mind when it starts going away. I think shoes are supposed to do that. To me they look more real and natural. But I can totally see how some would want to preserve that.
Currently, Christian Louboutin offers five shades of Nudes: the lightest being Lea and the darkest being Ada. Nats, Maya and Safki are shades in the middle ranging from honey to chestnut.
But as long as women continue to covet his designs he maintains that the sky is the limit in terms of what he can design. “For me there ain’t no high heel high enough,” he said.
And we all should believe Christian Louboutin shoes will be more and more comfortable.
