red shoesChristian Louboutin launched another court case centered around its red soles–but this time, there’s a political message attached.The company won an injunction against an anti-Islam women’s group in Belgium that used his famous heels in a campaign, according to the Telegraph. The flyer in question features former Miss Belgium Anke Vandermeersch, who is now a senator for the far-right Vlaams Belang party the Flemish Interest party, which wants to split from Belgium. red shoesIts anti-Islam message marks Islam’s supposed view of women–from “sharia conform” at floor-level to “stoning” at the top of the thigh.Louboutin alleges that it did not grant permission for its shoes to be used in the ad, and that the ad is damaging in nature. The courts agreed: Vlaams Belang was ordered to remove all the offending posters in 24 hours. The latest image from the group has the soles of the shoes Photoshopped yellow, the color of Dutch-speaking Flanders whom the Flemish Interest party purports to represent.Vandermeersch was not pleased with Louboutin; when the company first threatened legal action, she asked wryly, “Are politicians still allowed to dress the way they want? ”“It seems that not only Islam is intolerant, ” Vogue quotes her as saying. “A legal judgment on a dress code for politicians would be a surreal precedent. Apart from the absurd argument concerning reputational damage, there is no legal basis for such a dress code. ”Of course, Louboutin isn’t trying to stop Vandermeersch herself from wearing Louboutins though, we assume after this, she likely won’t; rather, the company is protecting the use of its red soles in imagery, as it’s been known to do. It’s also undoubtedly a move to protect business in the Middle East–with luxury sales in the region projected at $7. 69 billion, it’s the 10th biggest luxury market in the world and growing, according to Arabian Business.

red shoesThere’s that tricky phrase though: High-end. Loubies start -- START! -- at $500 a pair. Much as I may covet a pair of butterscotch red bottoms, my grad student budgets demands I shop elsewhere. To that end, here are my top six picks gals who can't afford the real thing but are still looking for their perfect nude: Christian Louboutin.The classic heel gets a little sexier with cut-away sides. Don’t worry, you can still walk the office with these -- and then strut to happy hour right afterward.A chic pump never goes out of style.red shoes And Enzo Angiolini is one of my favorite brands, thanks to great construction, quality materials, a comfy fit and reasonable prices.Bandolino’s stacked-heel wedges will make you strut like a city girl.red shoes I envision these peeking out from under a pair of long-length bootcut jeans, or accessorizing your favorite pencil skirt.These wedges from Clarks have the double-whammy of being stylish AND wearable.

Back in 2010, when magazines were touting “nude” as the hot color of the year, the shade they featured was actually a warm beige -- nude for only a few. All the more reason why the Nudes campaign by Louboutin is so necessary and important.red shoesI'm hopeful that the Louboutin push will be game-changing, and that eventually the plural in nude will trickle all the way down to those of us armed with coupon codes for DSW.
