After A long going legal battle over the RED BOTTOM design a New York federal court of appeals has granted Louboutin trademark protection over its signature red sole.
According to the ruling, Louboutin can block other designers from co-opting their signature red soles … but ONLY when they are on a shoe that primarily contains a contrasting color on the top (like the photo on the right above).
But if YSL OR any other company wanted to have an all RED shoe There’s nothing Louboutin Can do. (Like the Photo on the left).
SideNote- Louboutin’s can run you up to $20,000
