Ever wonder how a pair of "Red bottoms" are made?

Since the Groundhog didn't see his shadow, looks like spring will be blossoming in the coming days. While I am personally excited for warmer weather, my allergies are not looking forward to an early spring. However, when it comes to fashion, (no matter what the season is), it's exciting time to take a look at hot fashion. Of course in honor of wear red month, it's only right that we kick it off with the story of how a hot pair of Christian Loubotins also known as "red bottoms" are made.

Many women and men drool over these shoes and while most know they come from Paris, some do not know how much work goes into creating these masterpieces. So sit back and enjoy this enlightening journey of how one man's obsession with shoes became a dream business.
