MEET CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN'S FRED LACE-UP SHOES (£313)
I saw this on net-a-porter.com. I never thought Christian Louboutin would design such shoes. I give kudos that the brand is reaching into different styles and vibes. But still, Louboutin's famous for his super high heels that have this ultra feminine and sexy vibe. For flats, I think that still fits in his category since flats are still feminine. But for flat sneaker style oxfords ???? I think that's a different story. I think it's way too masculine for the brand despite the effort of putting glittery color all over the shoe. It's still masculine.
Here's the patent black version of the oxfords:
The black one looks even more masculine. If I may suggest one thing for Louboutin, he should make these into oxford heels ! now that would be a kick-ass masculine shoe !
Bottom Line: Great design (very trendy et all) but I don't think it fits the brand image.
