Best Christian Louboutin Quotes

A shoe is not only a design, but it’s a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you’re going to move is quite dictated by your shoes.

You need to believe in yourself and what you do. Be tenacious and genuine.

The higher the better. It’s more about an attitude. High heels empower women in a way.

A shoe has so much more to offer than just to walk.

I would say that a good shoe is exactly like a good wine. These shoes are going to stay and last for a long time.

I wouldn’t take it as a compliment if someone looked at one of my shoes and said, ‘Oh, that looks like a comfortable shoe.’ There is a heel that is too high to walk in, certainly. But who cares? You don’t have to walk in high heels.

There is an element of seduction in shoes that doesn’t exist for men. A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes.

I hate the idea of natural. For example, I prefer gardens to wild nature. I like to see the human touch. High heels are a complete invention – an extravagance. They’re far from natural, but it’s the impracticality that I adore. I prefer the useless to the useful, the sophisticated to the natural.

If you’re passionate about the world, and if you really look closely at everything around you, each thing can be transformed into a shoe, or into a part of a shoe.

A naked woman in heels is a beautiful thing. A naked man in shoes looks like a fool.

A woman carries her clothes. But the shoe carries the woman.

I have no problem with the idea of comfort, but it is not an important thing aesthetically. If you look at a shoe and immediately say it looks very comfortable, in terms of design, it is not going to excite me. Of course, I am not putting nails in my shoes to ensure everybody is in pain, but a heel is not a pair of slippers and never will be.

The thing I always try to remember is that feet are attached to the leg, and that you must prolong the silhouette. The shoe elongates the leg and does it discreetly. The goal is to get people to look at a woman’s legs. It’s all about the leg. No, it’s not about the leg. It’s about the woman.

Fashion isn’t interesting when it comes from an uninspired place. It’s like voodoo; we don’t want things that are soaked in blood, sweat, and tears. I adore life, and I’m very easygoing – and it shows in my work.

You’re abandoning a lot of ideas when you’re too into comfort.

When a woman buys shoes, she takes them out of the box and looks at herself in the mirror. But she isn’t really looking at her shoes – she’s looking at herself. If she likes herself, then she likes the shoes.

Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes.

I never was interested in being part of the fashion world – I just wanted to design shoes. I didn’t even know ‘Vogue’ existed when I was growing up. ‘Vogue,’ what is that?’

The shiny red color of the soles has no function other than to identify to the public that they are mine. I selected the color because it is engaging, flirtatious, memorable, and the color of passion.

The heel is engineering in itself. This little thing that supports the human weight has to have a precise balance.

Women like my shoes because they look good on them, not because they look good on the rack.

I am always surprised by who wears my shoes. This is a good thing. There is no type of woman, but all my women like to feel feminine. They are women who are happy to be women.

One moves more slowly in heels. Walking fast is neither sexy nor engaging. Nobody notices the people who race around. If you’re walking in heels, you’ve got time. It’s much more attractive.

My job is designing shoes. It’s work that happens behind the scenes, as they say, and that suits me just fine because in general I am a shy person. But sometimes I have these extroverted outbursts.
