How to Remove Marker and Pen Ink from Christian Louboutin Soles

By Bebefuzz

If you shop last call or pre-owned, you've probably come across a pair of Louboutins with ugly pen or permanent marker writing on the bottom. It's horrible to see those black scribbles that ruin Louboutin's signature red bottom. Before you walk away from that amazingly priced pair of shoes, here's a secret in making that mark go away easily and quickly!

Some black ink can easily ruin the look of your Louboutins!

This how-to can be used for removing pen or permanent marker located anywhere on the bottom red sole area of Louboutin heels. It has also been used on new and old versions of Christian Louboutin shoes successfully.

To demonstrate, we'll remove the pen mark at the bottom toe area. Pen marks at the bottom arch are much more obvious and bothersome to a wearer, but unfortunately, we did not have shoes on hand that had this problem.

All that's needed is a bottle of acetone nail polish remover and a cotton swab or q-tip.

Wet the cotton with the nail polish remover and wipe the ink from the soles! It really is that easy! The red paint on Louboutins is quite strong and will not be removed if you do not wipe aggressively.
