When I think of the red bottom heels—also known as Christian Louboutins—my mind flashes back to 2009 and nights out in NYC watching well-heeled women stumble around a club like they’re auditioning for a part in Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video. “Loubs” to me are so 10 years ago, but I was shocked to recently discover that the brand is itself over 20 years old.
Call me jaded, but I did work in the fashion industry and have seen designers and trends come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. Needless to say, I was surprised to hear that people were still salivating over Loubs and that says a lot for his designs…whether you idolize them or find them totally tacky, they are here to stay.
Walk the walk
I’ve personally never owned a pair but have witnessed many friends stylishly suffer in the name of fashion and sex appeal. You’ve heard that fashion can be painful? Well Cardi B refers to them as bloody shoes, and that can be pretty apropos after a night out in them.
These expensive. These is red bottoms. These is bloody shoes. —Cardi B
