I like shoes as much as the next girl, but I’ve not really been the most fashion savvy on the subject and the goings-on in the world of fashionable footwear. I think it was after several years of seeing and being fascinated by red under-sole shoes that I came to know of Louboutin shoes and how they’d started the whole trend before the knock-offs and me-toos spread the seed of red undersoles in women’s black stilettos in particular.

Here’s a picture of the originals then, with Louboutin emblazoned in clear and prominent style on the packaging below. Even with what little of the actual shoes are visible here, you can tell that these area classy pair of shoes for sure. Blacks are always a classic in most fashion accessories, but I guess the red sole just makes it that much more special. A little signal to flash at odd moments when the underneath of your shoes can be seen at all by anyone. You can’t see them, of course, but you know that silky red is there.

With dark woods and brick, red tones are already quite easy to come buy in home interiors, but with the Christmasy look increasingly used across seasons, a few red accents in the home can rarely be misplaced. There’s the old stereotype of women wanting to deck a home and every available seating area with inexplicable cushions and I have to admit it’s probably true. Just seeing this picture of a stack of cushions with a dual coloured cover, the bottom side red and the top a white and black plant pattern, makes me want to go out and buy more cushions. I don’t know where I’d put them, having only one couch that’s already inundated by cushions and a red throw, but damn-it, I’ll find a way. Surely, if cushions are worth it, and red covered ones more so, ones with red under covers like Louboutin shoes are an essential human need.
