Christian Louboutin Explains It All

I've been getting caught up on my New Yorkers. Here are some of my favorite snippets from a piece called, "Sole Mate" by Lauren Collins that appeared in the March 28th issue.

"I hate the whole concept of the clog!" Louboutin said. "It's fake, it's ugly, and it's not even comfortable!" He continued, "And I hate the whole concept of  comfort! It's like when people say, 'Well, we're not really in love, but we're in a comfortable relationship.' You're abandoning a lot of ideas when you are too into comfort. 'Comfy'--that's one of the worst words!"


Louboutin knows a couple who met, and married, after the man approached the woman about her red soles. With their erotic connotations, Louboutin's shoes have served as props in many romances, not all of them innocent.


"Men are like bulls," Louboutin said. "They cannot resist the red sole."


So, yeah, I have 3 pairs of clogs. They're comfy. I like comfy. But I prefer to be barefoot if it's warm enough.


Here is my absolutely most favorite pair of shoes.


Not exactly man bait, I suppose. Deliciously comfy though.

How about you, would you rather be comfortable or uncomfortable?

Laboutin sounds like a pretentious idiot. Even his name makes me gag.

Not my kind of man! Love your blog, I am following you from Rome, Italy but I am Sicilian.

Lemme say this... the only shoes I wear are not only clogs, but they are crocs. So, yeah.

I'm very particular about not getting the ones with holes in the tops (only around the sides). Does that count for anything? Hahaha.

I have lots of very high shoes that I wear in the house to play dress up like a little girl, cos I can't actually walk in them. I display some in a cabinet. When I go out, I wear clogs or Uggs cos they are comfy!

Comfortable.

Suffering is good for the soul, some pretentious person once said/wrote. But I prefer comfort any time. I will leave the suffering for the empire builders and gothic vampire lovers...

I have a pretty healthy mix of comfortable shoes and uncomfortable shoes. This is why I like Born. It's a mix of fashion and feet happiness.
