Christian Louboutin Vs. Yves Saint Laurent: The Red-Soled Stiletto Battle Rages On

In case you’ve been living barefoot under a rock for the past few months, you’ve probably heard all about the stiletto drama between Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Louboutin. If you have been on a heel hiatus we’ll give you a refresher: back in April, Christian Louboutin filed a $1 million lawsuit against YSL, claiming the French fashion house had infringed upon his trademark red-soled heels. Now, YSL says Louboutin did not invent red-soled heels, because “Red outsoles are a commonly used ornamental design feature in footwear, dating as far back as the red shoes worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in The Wizard of Oz,” according to The Daily Mail.

Upon looking further into the issue, however, it appears that YSL almost exclusively uses the red sole only on shoes that are already red, whereas Louboutin does so on every shoe regardless of color. And dear Mr. Louboutin, Victoria Beckham wore your pumps to the Royal Wedding…so let’s not get whiny here.
