As we know, Christian Louboutin is mainly known for his signature red soles. I happen to think that’s marketing genius. Apart from the fact that he’s an amazing designer, I think his signature has definitely helped him reach the top. What I don’t like is how other shoe designers came up with the same concept but different colors.
Back to the soles….If you have had a pair of replica Louboutins, then you already know that the soles are only that perfect and pretty when they are brand new. Once you wear them the bottom wears off and so the red paint goes away. You are gonna be crazy.
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.
I don’t have any experience with any services or products that do this. However I’m happy to share what I’ve heard others do to protect them. The Christian Louboutin shop in Los Angeles once recommended a shoe repair spot for me to stretch these boots I had just gotten. I figured if they were recommended by them, they were good. When I went there, the lady asked me if I wanted to add a red rubber to the bottom of my shoe so the red doesn’t go away.
She showed me a few different pairs they had just done. It was basically a thin red rubber. They place it only on the bottom of the shoe, the part that would get come off once walking. It’s a cool concept for those that absolutely cannot see the shoes any other way but all red. But for me it just isn’t my thing.
Another company I’ve come across is Protect Your Pumps. They provide a non slip transparent adhesive that you cut and place on the soles of your shoes. It is supposed to protect them from “dirt, grime, unattractive scratches and scrapes”. Have never tried it, but something you might want to consider. So if you care about your Christian Louboutin , pls protect it!
