When Red Soles Were Created
Although we love to believe that Christian Louboutin was the original creator of "Red Bottoms" (they were patented in 2008) Valentino's partner Giancarlo (in both business and personal life) states that Valentino used red soles since 1969. The retired Designer used them as an accessory to his staple red dresses. Giancarlo also states that red bottoms have been used dated back to the 1600's. If you have not heard by now all of Giancarlo's remarks were due to Louboutin suing YSL over making a pair of red sole shoes. Thoughts Lovies?
