Fash Forward Fella's Footwear

Christian Louboutin Men's Store

It takes little more than a glimpse of Christian Louboutin’s trademark red soles to send female fashionistas into breathless retail overdrive, but after two decades designing exclusively for the gals, and a lot of urging from celebrities and lay-shoppers alike, Louboutin is tapping into his previously uncatered-to market with his dedicated men’s locales in Paris, New York and now Los Angeles.

The downtown LA showroom oozes luxe masculinity in its design, with its quilted leather walls, sleek furnishings and tiger rug providing the backdrop to four different retail environs that house the various footwear and accessory strands of Louboutin’s men’s collection.
There are stud-covered Louis Junior low-tops, suede Aoussam boots with a vertigo-inducing 8cm heel and classic-meets-patent Bruno brogues - and that’s not all. Coveted Rollerball Spiked loafers made famous by Kanye West and Elton John sit alongside the West Coast’s largest selection of designer wallets, document cases and travel bags.

All of this revered cobbler’s creations are meticulously handmade in Italy (yes, with the signature red soles), where he skillfully crafts a collection that ensures there’s something to suit every outfit, occasion and style. And customisation gets a trendy twist at the in-store ‘tattoo parlour’, where your custom design can be cotton-copied onto shoes for a truly one-off pair. Whether you’re a dapper chap, funky fella or smart ol’ boy, you’ll be kicking up your heels. Red or dead!
