Men in high heels are ridiculous: Christian Louboutin

Louboutin

Christian Louboutin is known for his innovative designs but the iconic shoemaker says heels for men are a step too far.

The 48-year-old Paris-based footwear maker, who recently launched one of his stores in India (Mumbai), said he has sympathy for men who can't look tall as compared to women, Femalefirst reported.

"Men in high heels? That's a prosthesis. But I sympathise. Women have these giant heels. They get taller and taller. The men need help, but a man in heels is ridiculous," he said.

However, Louboutin believes high heels are pleasure with pain and women shouldn't wear them if they can't walk in them.

"I really have not so much sympathy. If Tina Turner and Prince's back-up band can perform on stage in them for three hours, you can't tell me they are impossible to walk in. High heels are pleasure with pain. If you can't walk in them, don't wear them," he said.
