Hooked: Christian Louboutin
For spring, Christian Louboutin is expanding his well-heeled empire to include his first pair of sneakers. And finally, at long last, those shiny red soles aren’t the sole providence of the ladies. The “Louis” sneaker ($995), in both men’s and women’s sizes, re-imagines the classic cap-toe basketball high-top in deluxe calfskin, treated with 260 lovingly applied studs. The result is something like Hellraiser meets the Harlem Globetrotters, available in classic white or a more commanding black. At Fred Segal Feet in L.A. and Christian Louboutin in New York.
