Ahhhh Christian, Christian, Christian, why taunt us regular folk with your beautiful shoes? In a land far, far away called Hollywood, there once was a year called 2009, and on every fair maiden who could afford them, wore them: Louboutins. This year was indeed the year of Christian Louboutin. Every fashionable girl from Beyonce, Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Longoria, the Kardashians, some girl from Glee, Ashley Tisdale, Halle Berry, Oprah–well you get the picture.
Perhaps its the shoe’s alluring and signature red bottoms that scream “hey you over there–yea you, look at my expensive shoes!” that have women (and men) drawn to the shoe. Everyone’s favorite rapper, Jay-Z, put it best in his song, “I Know” with this line, “I am so DOPE/Like Louboutins with the red bottoms/You gotta have ’em, you glad you got ’em.”

The beauty of Louboutin is its versatility for all age groups, yes, you have the 6 inch monsters as pictured above, but for the sporty granny who still wants to get her Louboutin-on, check these puppies out:
Louboutin has it all, from the “I’m the head-b**ch in- charge- around here” office shoes, to the “I’m wearing these tonight for my man, so I can get another pair tomorrow” shoes.
Ok, let’s get down to business, the cheapest pair I’ve seen were for around $700, and the highest, about $3,000, for a custom-made shoe. I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but they’re not THAT expensive, if you have the budget for it.
Since I’m an adult now ( it’s a love/hate relationship), I’ve made a promise to myself that every birthday, I’ll buy something for me that no one else will; like a pair of Louboutins. So if you’re in Atlanta on November 15, 2010, SCREAM AT ME AND MY NEW CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINS!
So congrats Mr. Louboutin on making the Status Wish List. I’m secretly hoping that somewhere over in Pairs, he’s reading my story and sending me a pair…right… NOW…
