Interested in Christian Louboutin shoes?
You only need to take one look at the website of designer Christian Louboutin to realise that you're dealing with a seriously quirky individual. With a bizarre layout, strange spot sounds and the best use of a hovering red shoe glowing in a luminous green that we've ever seen online, the entire site is bustling with character.
Even the biography page is tyically off the wall. A photograph of Mr. Louboutin leaping into the air is complimented with a stream of text scrolling up towards the top of the page in real Star Wars style and, if you weren't aware of the undoubted talents and quality of Louboutin's work you would be forgiven for thinking that you were dealing with a bit of a special case.

Those of you based in London can buy his shoes direct from his boutique, located at 24 Motcomb Street, SX1 8LB, or from his Harvey Nichols concession located on the first floor of Harvey Nichols, 109 - 125 Knightsbridge, XW1 X7RJ.
