Blue Soled Bridal Shoes

Share |

When Event Coordinator Jubilee Lau sent me an image of her client's wedding shoes as a Flirty Idea for "Something Blue" I had NO clue how the search for a source for them would become an all out quest.

Beginning in 2006 there are various blog and forum posts of brides asking, seeking, pleading and searching for where oh where could Christian Louboutin's Tiffany blue soled bridal shoes be purchased. Mr. Louboutin is the genius behind his now internationally famous "red soled" shoe collection. Oddly as I began my quest to track down the blue shoes I caught an episode of Oprah featuring the esteemed designer and his very flirty creations. I took a few photos with my camera for those of you who haven't ever seen his trademarked red soles.

But while red soles are his trademark? The Tiffany blue soles were a one time collection that is no longer avaialble. Coveted doesn't begin to describe the elusive, bordering on mythical, Christian Louboutin blue soled bridal shoes! I read some very sad forum posts by brides who wanted them but were told they were no longer available.

More digging and I found a snippet that the shoes are available, but only by ordering from a Christian Louboutin flagship store with an additional fee. With hope and anticipation I called the salon only to learn that sadly, it wasn't true. Brace yourselves ladies... The CL blue soled bridal shoes are no longer available. *Gasp, gasp, thud!*

 
 

But not to worry. . .


I later found out from Jubilee that her bride took her shoes to "Shoe Service Plus." This is also the same cobbler shop that the Louboutin flagship store in NYC recommended to me when I contacted them.

They don't have a website but their shop is listed on Yelp at this link:

My understanding is you can send your shoes in by mail and they'll turn the soles blue then ship them back to you. The local resource here in San Jose has unfortunately discontinued this servcie.

Even Christian Louboutin's red soled shoes are a favorite among brides who want to make a fashion statement.

I took this photo on the day I followed along to do a flirty review of A Video Reflection with David Ethridge.
