Shoe designer Christian Louboutin sits down to talk to GQ about his transition into men’s shoes over the years as well as changing attitudes in men’s fashion in regards to shoes. He discusses his outlook on shoes growing up in Paris and how this recent change in attitude isn’t a homosexual trend but just a shift in general. It’s interesting to us how mainstream Louboutin shoes have become especially on the hip-hop scene, because they were seen as the A-list female footwear early on. Do you think the newfound obsession of men with the shoe brand is the same as the women’s? Is the shift in attitude towards men’s shoes an effect of how globally influenced some fashion has become over the years? Or is this just a new status trend for men?
