I love these shoes made by French designer Christian Louboutin. His shoes are instantly recognizable by their distinctive red sole making them desirable for woman across the world. He one said ‘I want to make shoes that are jewels’ and explains ‘shoes are more than an accessory they are an extension of a woman’. Christian Louboutin is very relevant in terms of design as his work has evolved since he first began designing shoes in 1978. Take this shoe, he has transformed a classic style ankle boot with his signature heals and added a gold zip and a modern style point to make it a unique design item.
