Spikes or Soles, It’s a Man’s World Critical Shopper


Continue reading the main story Share This Page Continue reading the main story Photo Credit Yana Paskova for The New York Times THERE is no choice but to address the spikes head on, sharp as they may be.

Like fire-engine-red soles before them, spikes are a Christian Louboutin signature that simultaneously repel and attract. They connote danger and violence and masochism and an almost unparalleled self-regard. Wearing shoes designed to resemble the head of a mace isn’t for the shy, or the well liked, or the wanting to be well liked.

To Mr. Louboutin’s credit, those shoes are nestled in the back of his new store in the meatpacking district, his first men’s-only store in this country. (The only other one is in Paris.) You have to want them badly enough to find them. You must overcome a bit of token restraint.

Restraint is not a Louboutin hallmark, and so I’d brought my most peacockish friend — we’ll call him Hugh — in hopes of finding simpatico moments of flash. Before we went in, we tried to puzzle out the possible naming options: Dudeboutins? Broboutins? That was silly. Obviously, the shorthand already exists: red bottoms. The look is so associated with the brand that it’s become the brand; even some judges agree .

Let’s see what Rick Ross, Louboutin house bard, has to say: “Pop bottles, make love, thug passion/Red bottoms, Moncler, high fashion.”

Continue reading the main story Well, of course they do, which is why on this weekend afternoon, the store was never not full, with a mix of would-be hip-hop moguls, frequenters of Pacha, even a woman in respectable olive green No. 6 clogs. Many just stared, and more than you’d think tried things on, given that the prices go past the shocking and right to the insane. A guy with a snakeskin-motif bandanna draped out of his back pocket tried on patent leather slip-ons under the guidance of a woman in a distressed rocker T-shirt that screamed stylist’s assistant: in a room of extremes, they appeared perfectly at home.

The store itself is a collection of luxe design touches: a (great) Art Deco strip of red and white pony hair on the floor, gray leather with black embroidery on the walls. On the second level, past the pie covered in leather espadrilles and rib-cage-like sandals, up a set of stairs, the floor is covered with a rug in the shape and image of a splayed tiger, with a facsimile of Mr. Louboutin’s signature at the edge.

NAVIGATING this cornucopia required an assist, and into that role slipped Damion, in a V-neck T-shirt and outrageously spiked sneakers from a couple of seasons ago. He was one of a staff of four who sold with infectious enthusiasm, speaking with awe about the crocodile bellies that provide some Louboutin raw material, and eagerly pulling shoes you didn’t ask for in the spirit of sharing.

Photo Credit Yana Paskova for The New York Times By that point, I’d accepted some of Louboutin’s parameters. The default loafer shape is slim and low, almost slipperlike, a toast to leisure. There was a perverse sense to the patent leather lace-up oxford with a gold-link chain draped around the back like a harness ($995). It’s the rare ornament that matches the original’s dignified gaucheness.

Other choices were more vexing, like the double monk with a patent covered toe, as if it had been hand-dipped in the finest ganache, which is luxury of a sort, I suppose. Many of the materials felt far cheaper than their expense would seem to indicate, and some looked like student projects, like the high-top sneaker festooned with technical blueprints, as if designed to be the official wardrobe of “Hackers” ($1,295).

After about an hour in the store, a sort of Stockholm syndrome sets in. It was at this point that Damion brought out the big guns: black slip-on loafers hand-embroidered — by House of Lesage, in India — in a pattern resembling a Japanese prison tattoo, unevenly spread out over both shoes ($1,995). I felt as if I should be ordering hits on midlevel traffickers.

A neon sign near the ceiling reads “Tattoo,” and what that means is that you can bring in your own design and, if Mr. Louboutin approves, have it hand-embroidered onto a pair of loafers for a few thousand dollars. (Mr. Louboutin will be at the New Yorker festival next week if you want to run design ideas past him.)

In the meantime, Hugh had been given a purple slip-on loafer with a stacked sole, red edging and two rows of studs encircling the base. It’s what the lead stomper of a Disney Channel Oi! band might wear. After that, Damion gave him a stacked-heel dark suede boot ($995) that added three inches to his height and late-’70s Prince to his Halloween options.


Continue reading the main story My submission came in the form of pustules. Not the phalanxes of studs on the all-over red slip-ons ($1,395), but a bushel of tassels. They erupted off the top of an otherwise sleek black suede loafer ($1,795). This was the item the word “festooned” was invented for. And yet, on the foot, it had a tremendous logic: austere at the base, and overflowing at the top — what you might wear if the party invite read Mardi Gras formal.

Christian Louboutin

808 Washington Street, (212) 255-2056; .

RED DAWN The soles are the message, and, increasingly, so are the spikes. Mr. Louboutin’s talent is to create shoes that sneer and luxuriate in equal measure. By being so smug, they are essentially critic-proof.

RED ALERT Prices are, for the most part, shocking, starting at several hundred dollars for a basic loafer.

CODE RED Even if the product and price can be off-putting, there may be no more joyous place to shop in the city. Enthusiasm in the store is infectious, and not even a little self-aware, which is as it should be.
