3 TIPS TO AUTHENTICATE Christian Louboutin Shoes

Fortunately, there are a few giveaways that you can look out for when shopping for sexy, red bottom shoes. Here are some of the most common characteristics of counterfeit Christian Louboutin shoes.

Christian Louboutin LOGO

The Christian Louboutin logo has specific characteristics. Check the following to filter out fakes quickly:   

  1. Clear and crisp name
  2. There is a space between the “C” and the “h”
  3. There is NOT a space between the “L” and the “o”


Inspect Christian Louboutin Stitching and Quality


Now step back and look at the whole shoe and notice the overall quality. Christian Louboutin shoes have very straight, tightly woven stitching with no gaps. Look for signs of poor craftsmanship, such as frays, uneven lines, or gaps in the stitching.

Most fakes do not replicate the red sole very well. A genuine Christian Louboutin sole is leather and painted a bright lustrous, vibrant shade of red, resulting in a unique look. Fakes typically contain plastic or some other resin bottom.

Look at the shape of the shoe. Notice if it has that sexy, flattering cut to the inside and outside. Getting those tight, foot forming lines are what usually makes footwear expensive. You can bet it’s not real if it has any clunky features, like a large toe box, high vamp, or wide body.

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Authentication Packaging

Christian Louboutin’s shoes are packed in a beige rigid cardboard box with the logo elegantly written on the top.

Authentic Christian Louboutin can come with 1 or 2 velvety feeling cotton shoe bags and a similarly luxurious small mini shoebag containing heel taps, wrapping, and shoe stuffing. There are no plastic baggies. Counterfeiters frequently overlook this detail and use a plastic supply bag.

Christian Louboutin does NOT provide an authenticity card or documentation with its footwear. Such authenticity documentation is usually obtained in the reseller market by a 3rd party authentication service like Real Authentication.
