Once upon a time, in a far away land called Paris, lived a gentleman who revolutionizing the way women saw shoes. He worked long and hard knowing the fruits of his labor would be appreciated in time.
When he saw romance give way to technology, he knew that the modern day Cinderella needed something to remind her that fairy tales still existed. So he fashioned a glass slipper for her to wear on the day she would find happily ever after with her Prince Charming.
And that Gentle Reader is the story of one Monsieur Christian Louboutin.
Since there are not enough temples erected in your honor good sir, please allow me to pay tribute to you here!
