Christian Louboutin will sign your shoes


You read correctly.

Above, a full page ad from last Sunday's New York Times Styles section.

He'll sign your shoe purchase this Thursday, February 7, 2008, from 4 to 7 at Saks Fifth Avenue's flagship store.

Finally, an excuse (however flimsy) to buy a pair.

You know you want to.

Aren't I bad?

On 10022-Shoe, Saks' designer shoe floor.

If you have to ask for directions, you really shouldn't bother going.

And don't worry — no one you know will be there.

Though I guarantee there'll be people you recognize.

Wear your darkers if you like, but be prepared to sign autographs yourself.

"Aren't you... ?"

anyway, I found the news so disturbing in some ways that I had to make an article about it.

it's outrageous!
I find it to be a potentially damaging precedent. Soon we'll have everyone lining-in for an autographed belt, skirt or lingerie..

Shoot, I'll sign your shoes for nothing, as, um, as performance art. No -- I take that back, not nothing... Seventy-five cents. I'll sign your shoes for seventy-five cents. And I won't discriminate, either; I'll take all kinds -- mules; espadrilles; brogans; ankle-strap, 5" eff-me heels; gladiators; pointy-toed witch shoes; steel-toed work boots; Mary Janes; runners, walkers, aerobics, cross-trainers, hikers; great-great grandma's buttonhooks; opera pumps; wing-tips, curly-toed Aladdin shoes,...etc. Plus, you don't have to run out and buy a new pair. And, it will not only NOT make them worth anything nor give them any cachet whatsoever, it will most probably reduce whatever value they once had to less than nothing.
