You know Christian Louboutin shoes when you see the red soles, and you know they're worn by some of the world's most famous women. But how much do you know about the creator of the sexy footwear? Learn more about the designer and his shoes with these Christian Louboutin fast facts.

Louboutin Manicure
Christian Louboutin's famous red soles were inspired by an employee's nail polish, so it's only fair that those same red soles inspired a manicure called, what else, but the "Louboutin Manicure." The trend involved painting the underside of the fingernail tip red, and the top of the nail black, so what looked like normal black polish delivered quick flashes of red, much like catching a fleeting glimpse of a
Louboutin sole.

Christian Louboutin Shoes with Blue Soles
For a short time, some Christian Louboutin shoes were available with baby blue soles. Intended to provide the "something blue" for brides-to-be, these creations were only available via special order, and were very short-lived. Production was eventually stopped due to trademark issues.

The Way to Louboutin's Heart
Women far and wide have a weakness for Louboutin shoes. So what does the designer himself have a weakness for? Books and colorful ties, that he doesn't wear. Hmmm ... I know a few shoe fanatics with a similar problem. In an interview with Financial Times' How to Spend It magazine, Christian Louboutin said:

"If I go shopping, it might be to buy two or three more ties, which I never wear, or shirts from Charvet on Place Vendome. Here they have the most magnificent coloured ties: it's like looking at a lovely garden. I have tons of them at home and I am perfectly happy not to wear them."

Designing Hills Instead of Heels
After completing his work with famed shoe designer Roger Vivier in 1989, Christian Louboutin briefly left the fashion industry to work as a landscape designer. He returned in 1992 with his own collection of footwear.
