Sure, you could go ahead and order custom-made shoes from pretty much any shoemaker, but they won’t be Louboutins. Actually, Christian Louboutin has launched an exceptional service that guarantees the manufacturing of the world’s most unique pairs of shoes, and that’s because each pair is going to be designed specifically for each customer’s feet.
In order to benefit from this offer, you’ll have to take a few trips to Paris on your own expense, and you’ll have to get your feet measured at about 12 key points. You’ll also be required to step into a mold, and you will be asked about what kind of adornments you’ll want on your shoes, such as sequins, graphics and other ornaments. You’ll have to return to the Atelier at Paris’s 1st Arrondisement afterwards for a dress rehearsal, and if everything is to your liking, you will be invited at a later date to pick up your fancy shoes. The service costs $3,400 for shoes and $4,000 for boots, and considering the exclusivity of it all, we’d say that is a price worth paying.
