Christian Louboutin and men's shoes

    A couple of years ago I wrote about women's shoe designer Christian Louboutin and whether we should welcome his entry into the world of men's shoes. The question is now moot as the brand is scheduled to open its first store for men's shoes in Paris. And there are a few RTW sneakers and men's shoes available on the CL website.

The New Yorker recently did a profile of Mr. Louboutin and I've excerpted a few quotes which express his design aesthetic:

It'll be interesting to see what kind of footwear he produces for men and the construction techniques (Goodyear welted v. Blake stitched). Apparently, all of his women's shoes are made in a factory outside of Milan.
