Review

-- "Louboutin's book will have you craving for another scarlet-soled pair in no time." ~Plastik

"A stunning volume, it features a 5-piece fold-out cover, a binding of pink faux-leather, a magical interior pop-up, as well as gilded pages. With five chapters—A Life; The Shoes; Fetish; The Places; and Twenty Years—this elegant monograph reveals the artistry and theatricality of Louboutin’s shoe designs, from his iconic stilettos to his fetishistic pieces and everything in between." ~FashionWindows.net

OMG ladies!!! This book is beyond beautiful. At first I was slightly hesitant about paying so much for a book, but let me tell you it's WORTH it! Not only is the binding wonderful (wrapped in leather) but the pictures are spectacular. Large, glossy and tons of photos. Put it on your NEED list!

Okay, I don't really ever write reviews on anything, but I had to say something about this book. It is in one word AMAZING! I was debating about spending so much on a book, but when I got it in the mail a few days later, I knew it was worth it before I even started looking through it. First off, it's really heavy because the hard cover is made from leather. The inside is just as great. I stayed up all night and read the whole book the very first day! I find the book so precious that I will not let anyone touch it unless they wash their hands :) after all, the leather is a really light pink color. Buy the book if you are a Louboutin fan, don't think about it!

My obsession with Christian Louboutin was only exemplified with this beautiful book when I received it with my first pair of Louboutin's this past holiday. Wrapped in a pink leather cover with detailed images, this book kindles my love for shoes. Can you call that a perfect combination?

This book focuses on Louboutin's early life, career and the artistic process that goes into creating the perfect "lacquered-red soled" shoe. I simply call him a genius because of his passion to create the perfect shoe for the modern 21st century woman. There is no other shoe designer that creates such exotic, globally wanted shoes combining materials such as feathers, fur, metal, spikes and Swarovski crystals that make a woman feel like a million dollars.

Ladies, does anyone want to see an archive of his shoe collections dating back to his debut in 1992? Well here you have that plus more. Louboutin's early career with Roger Vivier and Yves St. Laurent is also added to shake up the shoe scene.

Highly recommended for ANY Louboutin lover, shoe obsessor or just an appreciator for all things sexy and beautiful.

Louboutins are my absolute favorite shoes, so I pre-ordered this book as soon as I found out about it. This book is so beautiful!! It is huge and has amazing pictures that showcase the shoes (and the red soles!) in such unique ways. It will be an excellent addition to my coffee table. I'm so glad I got it on Amazon, rather than paying $150. Also, they delivered the same day it was released! I'm super happy with it.

This book is perfect for a shoe lover or a Christian Louboutin fan. I love this book it is beautifully made. It looks like a beautiful leather-bound type cover. When closed the pages appear to be covered in gold and inside the pictures are vibrant!! It is a great addition to my living room coffee table books. The Beautiful pictures chronicles all the shoes & ads from Christian Louboutin. Excellent purchase!!

I own a business called Redo My Shoe which specializes in embellishing designer shoes with Swarovski crystals, mainly Louboutins. As you can imagine, I get burnt out on placing stones on the same style shoe. At the end of the day, a strassed shoe is the last thing I want to see. However, this book completely changed that. Despite seeing most of the shoes already online, somehow this book presents them as new. And it includes an almost complete overview of every retailed shoe produced since starting his line. The photographs are crystal clear and totally inspiring for shoe lovers and designers alike. I myself am both and this book has given me the much needed motivation required to continue on doing what I do. I highly recommend it for yourself or to give as a gift.

This is more of a collectors item that my wife purchased. But its quality is supreme over similar 'designer' books that we have purchased. If you are a CL enthusiast you must add this to your collection.

Pros: High Quality Cover. The books contents are spot on with the truth.

Cons: Its a little pricey for what it is.

This was a leather bound book that shows well even before you open it up. Then the history, pictures, models, it is an awesome addition to my library. Truly reflects the man that has changed the fashion footwear industry.
