Christian Louboutin releases Lahore-inspired shoe

LAHORE: Earlier this year, Pakistani social media flew off the handle when shoe designer Christian Louboutin landed in the country and now shoe fans have been treated to the designer's latest creation, which is named after the city of Lahore.
Louboutin, who was in Pakistan attending an exclusive dinner hosted by the Art Divvy Foundation in April, visited design and art schools, made appearances at art events and traveled to sites to take in what Pakistan had to offer.
Known worldwide for his infamous red-soled shoes, owning a pair of his shoes is as much a style bucket list item as it is a status symbol.
Last week, reports broke out that on his website, a new shoe design had been released dubbed the “Lahore Flat.” Naturally those that love when Pakistan gets a nod abroad collectively rushed to the site to get a look at the shoe and its description. Curiously enough, though the shoe holds the name of Lahore, the description itself refers to the designer’s visit to Venice as the inspiration behind the shoe.

Follow in the footsteps of Lahore.

A flat shoe complete with a pointed toe and a wrap-around scarf for the ankle — which one could say resembles a dupatta, or scarf — comes in a classic black and two variations of the designer’s signature scribbles.
With Pakistan aiming to be a brand among international shopping enthusiasts, the little nod to his trip has been appreciated.
