Seeing Red

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Late last week the French court ruled that the clothing line, Zara, has the right to sell red-soled shoes despite said combination being largely recognized as the signature of famed French shoe designer, Christian Louboutin.  CL has been fighting this same battle with YSL for over a year now and not gaining any ground (red earthed or otherwise).  Using resources to scrimmage on so many fronts, I'm wondering how Mr. Louboutin is going to take on the DIY crowd who, with a peel and press can make any shoe a Louboutin?!
