Christian Louboutin Creates Trash

Famous shoe designer, Christian Louboutin, has created a shoe that is made out of trash.  Yup! You read it right, trash....as in garbage.  The Christian Louboutin "Ecotrash" Platform Slingback has a collage of fabric and paper scraps which include thread, postage stamps, leftover sequins, and scribbled sticky notes.  This "trashy" shoe retails for $1095. If it makes you feel any better,each pair will vary in detritus and no two pairs will be alike.  Each shoe is one-of-a-kind meaning that no one will be walking around with your same exact shoe on.  The "Ecotrash" shoe sits on a 2" python platform and has a 6" leopard-print covered heel. You can purchase this shoe at Neiman Marcus

Here are some of the various, unique styles of the Christian Louboutin "Ecotrash" Platform Slingback:





What do you think? Would you spend $1,000 on a shoe made out of trash?

When I saw this shoe last week I was a little put off by the whole "trash" headline. But I could see how this shoe could be appealing to the fashionista whose also into green living and recycling and all that (and that's not me at all).
