The Illustrious Red Sole

Red soles have always had a correlation to high fashion, however, with the recent lawsuit Christian Louboutin filed against YSL, the sole won't be so exclusive anymore. With the internet clammored with knock-offs, is the red sole even a status symbol anymore? Blogger Garance Dore discusses how one top editor paints the soles of her Louboutin's black, in an effort to disassociate herself with one brand or another. What do you think about the stigma of the red sole?

Its like many other trends and fashions - once it gets everywhere its not as fashionable anymore and loses its appeal and on to the next one! Loubitons will never go out of style though. I'm not one whose that into name brand anyway :)

yikes! i don't think loubous will ever go out of style...they'll always be associated with the red sole, no matter how many knock offs there are. it's sort of like the'll always be linked to coco chanel!

I LOVE my Louboutins! I have wanted them for so long and couldn't be more excited when I get to wear them. I feel more stylish just adding them to my wardrobe!
