Christian Louboutin’s Unique Shoe Trends
Blake Lively recently attended the 24th Annual Footwear Achievement Awards in New York City, arm in arm with famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin. And what else would the "Gossip Girl" actress be wearing but a pair of Swarovski-embellished Louboutin ankle boots? The dramatic shoes were part of the Christian Louboutin Fall/Winter 2010-2011 collection.
While Blake's shoes were something to ogle and go "ooh" at, what really caught my attention were the shoes that the designer himself was wearing. Christian was wearing a pair of studded sneakers of his own design. He's long been a top name when it comes to women's shoes but it now seems that the Louboutin brand is dipping its hands into the men's shoe market.
Louboutin's shoe line for men is part of the Spring/Summer 2011 collection and it features studded sneakers of different styles and designs. It's no secret that metal rivets and studs are the primary focal points of the series.
They're a far cry from what he usually designs for his women's collection but that's not necessarily a bad thing. To tell you the truth, I'm jealous of how badass these designs are. I wonder if he's planning to make women's versions of them because I'm sure there are a lot of women out there who want to feel like rock stars and I bet these shoes would make any woman feel like that.
