    Default Red Sole: Versace does Louboutin Shoes


    Just stumbled upon the latest designer inspiration of Christian Louboutin’s famous red sole, and this interpretation doesn’t come from the source you would think but rather a well-known respected designer, Italian fashion designer, Donatella Versace. Makes you think: If it were any other designer or no name label that copied the red bottom sole, would we scream “replica or a blatant copy?”


    When you think designer shoes and red soles, only one name pops to mind – a no brainer, Christian Louboutin. CL is a standout shoe maker, whose designs are instantly recognizable with the trademark red leather sole. History has it, he got the idea from one of his employees. One day he saw his employee putting red nail polish on, and at that moment he instantly know he was destined to paint his soles red. Since then, it became the signature of his shoes.


    Price wise you can find both red sole shoes by the respected designers at your local department store carrying a retail price in the same range.

    i think shame on donatella for copying louboutin... she knows the red sole is his trademark. she could've chosen a different color...

    Gisele looks amazing in those ads. Those blue shades are so gorgeous.

    It is a shame Versace has decided to use Louboutin's red again. I remember a few years ago, Versace was doing neon green soles. It wasn't for my taste but I think it complemented the brand's look. For these shoes, I think they should have just painted the soles to match the blue hues.

    I think its so funny how many people hate on oh deers because of it's red soles and dont say anything about versace. Not you guys ok, other people I know.

    I like oh deer and CL shoes are TDF but so overpriced. Maybe I'd think different if I was rich and willing to spend 800 dlls on a pair of simple pumps :P

    I actually prefer the Versaces to the Loubous in this post?
    God help me.

    When i saw a pair of the blue Tasseled ones in one of my recent issues of Allure, i automatically assumed they where Louboutins, and when i read that they weren't, i thought i can't believe that Versace is knocking off CL, but i would still buy the Tasseled ones if i could afford it.

    Do you know the price of those fabulous shoes?

    By the way...yesterday I saw that Versace is also selling those shoes with a pink sole but different color. Perhaps we did DV wrong and it is not just getting the attention of the clients by "copying" CL shoes.

    Think I am going to bed now. It is 10 p.m. over here! Have a good day everyone!
