You can now buy Christian Louboutin’s iconic red-bottom heels, that too for a cause! The designer has recently teamed up with Idris Elba and his partner Sabrina Dhowre Elba for a charity shoe collection. Yes, that’s right!
The collaboration apparently happened over a virtual chat last summer when the Black Lives Matter movement was at the center of the global conversation, with protests occurring around the globe. It is then that Louboutin suggested crafting shoes to support the cause.
A delight for footwear connoisseurs, the ensemble includes luxury sleek, pointy-toe pumps and mule sandals for her, high-top sneakers and oxford dress shoes for him, and leather top-handle bags. Commenting on it, Idris said, “Our intention is to contribute to the moment.”
He further added, “Some people can contribute by protesting, bypassing legislation, by offering money—but the intention of the contribution is what is important…The message we wanted to share with people is a message of solidarity and hope.”
Remarking similarly, Louboutin stated that the collection is a symbol of hope and freedom while adding, “It’s something more lively and enthusiastic to say all isn’t dark. We can still find hope in this challenging time.” Fancy red-bottomed shoes for a cause, then?
