Christian Louboutin Red Sole Shoes (photo)

So, you've been watching Oprah and you see Oprah Winfrey in her red soled shoes and you wonder who made those shoes?

They are be shoe designer Christian Louboutin of Paris.

They are pricy shoes, I've seen them as low as $450 for a pair of strappy sandels with a small heel at Nordstrom and up to thousand of dollars for some sexy stilettos.

What makes them unique is the red sole on the high heel shoe, that is the *soul* of the shoe, if you will.

It was created by accident, from what I heard. It wasn't an intentional design, but something happened. I think he or a model applied red nail polish on a whim.

He has been quoted in USA Today (because other designers are now copying his red sole shoes):

"The shiny red colour of the soles has no function other than to identify to the public that the shoes are mine," Louboutin told the US Trademark Office, according to reports this weekend. "It attracts men to the women who wear my shoes."
