Please note, the red lacquer on our soles will wear off with the use of the shoes. This is not a manufacturing defect of the shoes; it is usual wear and tear.

How do I protect or repair my Louboutin shoes?

Are rubber soles good for my Louboutin shoes?
The main benefits of rubber, as opposed to naked leather soles, are its superior durability and anti-slip qualities. Having rubber sole protectors applied early to your Louboutins is the most long-term and cost-effective option.
