She Red, He Red

Except for “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and maybe not even that, there are few occasions where it’s okay to wear women’s shoes.

But this is one of them.

Introducing Christian Louboutin‘s first-ever LA men’s store, just now open on Roberston in West Hollywood.

This is only the second men’s store from Louboutin, whose sexy red-soled high heels you probably remember from “The Devil Wears Prada,” and other movies you’ve watched only for Anne Hathaway’s legs.

Louboutin’s men’s kicks should be your go-to for formal and cheeky occasions alike — from the more summery Havana Flat, to the Vader black Gareth wingtip, to the black suede Rollerboy Spikes.


All these shoes are arrayed on equally avante garde shelving (metal-studded concentric rings, feathered cupolas) all beneath panelled leather walls and a carpet trimmed in rawhide.

And there’s one more first-ever perk: a “tattoo parlor,” where inked patrons can have their skin art photographed and embroidered on their next pair of shoes.

This time it won’t hurt a bit.
