Christian Louboutin is a French shoe designer known for making high-end footwear that frequently graces the feet of celebrities and fashion icons at red carpet events. A lifelong Parisian, Louboutin started his career as an apprentice in the atelier of Roger Vivier, the inventor of the stiletto heel. He went on to work as a freelance women's shoe designer for France's most prestigious couture houses, including Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, before eventually starting his own shoe label.

Vivier's influence on Christian Louboutin is undeniable—while Louboutin makes all kinds of shoes, from fur-lined mules to chunky boots, he is best known for sky-high pumps with a slim or stiletto heel, like the "So Kate," the "Pigalle," and the "Lady Peep." The Louboutin calling card is his signature red leather sole, which makes his shoes instantly distinguishable from other luxury footwear. The Louboutin red bottom is protected by trademark and is Pantone shade 18-1663 TPX.

Beloved by A-listers and street style stars alike, Louboutin's brand has become synonymous with elegance, luxury, and sophistication. His shoes have been photographed on Hollywood names like Emma Stone, Diane Kruger, Rihanna, Jessica Alba, Marion Cotillard, and Taylor Swift, and on fashion industry insiders like Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss. In fact, Louboutin heels are so ubiquitous that they've become pop culture icons in their own right; the shoes made many appearances on Sex and the City and have been name-dropped in songs by Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea. Louboutin also made headlines as one of the first brands in the industry to recognize that "nude" is not a universal term. As of 2013, Louboutin offers a range of neutral-toned footwear that suits a variety of skin shades.

Christian Louboutin's signature blend of timelessness and innovation means that his brand cachet will continue for untold years. While a pair of Louboutins is an investment, it's one that is sure to pay dividends—Louboutins are shoes you'll wear for life.
