In a fierce display of entitlement, Christian Louboutin the man who made red sole shoes an international trademark has filed a lawsuit against Yves Saint Laurent for making red sole shoes. Yves Saint Laurent’s 2011 spring collection features a pair of red heels with red soles, but it goes further to also feature navy blue heels with blue soles and purple heels with purple soles. One may ask; if the inclusion of purple and blue sole shoes is a cunning attempt by Yves Saint Laurent to mask its bad “COPYCAT” behavior or if it is innocently introducing a new initiative by matching the colour of its shoes with the soles.
This is not the first time Yves Saint Laurent has featured red sole shoes in its collection. What’s your take on this? Can you identify a pair of Louboutins from another brand that has simply taken out time to paint the soles of their footwear red? We say yes, as long as the insoles are cream coloured and the out soles are painted red it’s almost guaranteed to be an original pair of Louboutins so what’s the fuss about? Kiss and make up boys, people have been making red soles before Louboutins made them an international trademark. Instead of fighting, reps at Christian Louboutin should be celebrating the hugely successful release of its crystal platforms spotted on Beyonce Knowles at a recent Lakers game.
