The smooth, sensual lines of the Christian Louboutin Iriza pumps may be softly spoken, but the designer’s inspiration for creating shoes like these is one of pure rebellion. After a visit to Paris’ National Museum of African and Oceania Arts in 1976 and spotting a sign that forbade women from wearing heels – claiming they damaged the building’s wooden flooring – he endeavoured to manifest footwear that would break the rules and, most importantly, empower.
The red lacquered sole and sky-high stiletto heel seen here are undoubtedly an ode to this.
Please note, Christian Louboutin’s signature lacquered soles will wear out with use; this is normal wear and tear and is not considered to be a manufacturing defect. Please try these shoes on a carpeted surface, as any damage to the soles may prevent us from accepting returns.
