If you’re not familiar with the legendary red-soled shoes, then you must be living under a rock. Christian Louboutin and his footwear are truly iconic and they have graced the feet of Hollywood stars, dignitaries, and royalties.
Of course, the most popular collection from Christian Louboutin is their footwear. Initially marketed towards women exclusively, now Christian Louboutin also designs shoes for men. Still, the women’s footwear remains the most recognized. The following are just four models of Christian Louboutin heels that are considered “The Classics”.
These Christian Louboutin shoes can be considered as their trademarked design. The So Kate is a pointed-toe heeled shoe with a super-fine 120mm stiletto heel. Due to the slim heels, the wearer will look taller and their legs slimmer. The So Kate will be extremely uncomfortable if you’re not used to wearing Louboutin heels, so opt for similar designs with shorter and wider heels. But if So Kate’s 120mm heels is not enough, you can challenge yourself with the no platform Christian Louboutin Hot Chick heels and its 130mm slim heels.
The Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels come in three variations: the normal Pigalle, Pigalle Follies (slim heels), and Pigalle Plato (platform heels). All of the Pigalle heels has varying heel heights like flat, 85mm, 100mm, and 120mm, but the most prominent feature is its short toe box. It’s perfect for those who want to show their “toe cleavage” because the toe box will only cover a portion of your toes. Although the Pigalle and Pigalle Follies are similar to So Kate, the Pigalle and Pigalle Follies have a less dramatic curve.
The Decollete 554 is available in 85mm heels or 100mm heels. Also a pointed-toe shoe, the Decollete 554 is a more comfy alternative for the So Kate, Hot Chick, or the Pigalle Follies. It comes in a variety of colors, material, and finishes like glitter, leather, strass, suede, and more. Besides the original Decollete 554, the Decoltish is also available under the Decollete 554 collection. The only significant difference between the two is that Decoltish features a more curved heel.
Available in various heights, the Iriza offers more comfort for customers who don’t want to sacrifice the elegance that So Kate brings. If you feel that the So Kate is a tad constricting, then the Iriza is perfect due to the cut-out on one side. Just like the So Kate and the Decollete 554, the Christian Louboutin Iriza is offered in various colors, materials, and finishes. For a casual yet elegant outing with friends, opt for the neutral and solid colors but if you’re looking for a little bit more oomph, go for the glitter Irizas.
The Christian Louboutin Fifi heels are more down to earth. Compared to its sisters Pigalle, So Kate, Decollete 554, or Iriza, Fifi offers a more classic silhouette. While still maintaining the short toe box to allow more toe cleavage to peek out, it’s less pointy than the other heel designs. Available in nude colors in 85mm or 100mm, the Fifi is perfect for Christian Louboutin newbies looking for a comfortable starting pair of heels. Even if the Christian Louboutin Fifi heels are still uncomfortable, you can still choose the Louboutin Simple Pump with no frills and no fancy heel height or curves. Truly a simple pair of pumps with the iconic red soles.
To match your perfect red-soled shoes, Christian Louboutin has launched a series of handbags and other leather goods to help you complete your sophisticated look. You can choose from tote bags, two handles bag, chain bag, or clutch from this line of products. There are, however, Christian Louboutin handbag classics like the Paloma, Eloise, Panettone, and Kios. The materials of these iconic handbag collections vary and you can find materials like calfskin, python, and nappa leather in this Louboutin product line.
Christian Louboutin only recently started to dabble in the world of beauty and cosmetics. Now the Christian Louboutin beauty line comprises of nail polish, lipsticks, mascara, eyeliner, and perfumes. Not only do the products are of the highest standards, just like the Louboutin heels, the Christian Louboutin makeup and perfume packaging is quite pleasant to look at. The products resemble a pointy bullet, with gold or crystal embellishments. Other than that, one can also find lipsticks or nail polish with a matching color as the signature Louboutin red soles.
