Undeniably, Christian Louboutin heels are the most sought after shoes in the world. Commanding hundreds or even thousands of dollars and STILL flying off the shelves, it can be mystifying to newbies of the designer. Here are some of the most common questions in regards to Louboutins.
1. Are they comfortable?
Louboutins are EXTREMELY well made and well balanced. I’m not a super good heel walker, but I find that the 100 mm (4 inch) and below are all quite good for walking. Personally, when I get into the 120mm (5 inch) and above without a platform, it can be painful after a while.
Some of Louboutins common heels are 6.5 inches! Even Christian Louboutin himself stated that these shoes were not for walking but for special events. The designer has always emphasized that style and beauty has trumped comfort.
2. What about sizing?
Louboutins usually run narrow. So, if you have narrow feet, you’ll probably find these to be a little more comfortable than the rest of us, and you’ll probably stay true to size. This means if you’re a 7 in US shoes, you’ll be a 37 in most Louboutins.
If your feet are medium to wide, you’ll most likely 1/2 size up in Louboutins. This means 7 US=37.5 in Louboutins.

3. What are your favorite Louboutin styles?
It’s hard to pick…
Pigalle Plato 120 in nude
Rolando 120 in black
Simples 100 in nude
What can I say? I’m a classics kind of girl…
4. Why do people pay so much money for these shoes?
They are freaking beautiful!! The toe box, the vamp, the low sides, these features all make your feet look dainty, feminine and ultra sexy! Even without the gleaming glossy red soles, these shoes have an uncanny effect of greatly elevating outfits!
Even the less fancy Louboutins can be seen as works of art.
