Our trademark red soles are created by applying lacquer on top of classic European beige leather soles. Please be advised that the red sole will become worn, revealing the natural color of the European sole underneath.

The red wearing off is not a defect and is expected to happen with use. If you are unhappy with the natural wear of our soles, they can be repainted with our signature red color. This is not an in-house service, however, we recommend several cobblers that have perfected these techniques as well as others to recover our soles.

General care advice:

  • Always store your Christian Louboutin products away from light and heat.
  • Protect leather goods from rain and humidity.
  • When not in use, store your footwear in the Christian Louboutin dust bag provided.
  • Avoid contact with abrasive surfaces.

We strongly recommend consulting a leather care professional or cobbler for specific advice and maintenance.

While we currently do not provide in-house repair services, we recommend several high-quality cobblers that have perfected these techniques. Should you need to repair or refurbish an item purchased online we are happy to suggest the following repair specialists:
