It’s a universal truth that baby shoes are THE CUTEST THING IN THE WORLD. We pick them up in the shops and marvel at their tininess with squeals of “just look how schmalllllll”. Miniature slippers will make us broody while a tiny pair of Converse will send us positively over the edge.
Well, when we found out that baby footwear had been given a high fashion upgrade courtesy of Chrisitan Louboutin, we were half concerned, half intrigued. Will they be dressing our babies in severe, 4-inch pointed power heels? A blood red sole perhaps?
PHEW, because Louboutin’s debut baby shoe line – adorably named Loubibaby – is still very baby but also very chic.
The debut collection features satin Mary Janes that come in blue, pink and red and feature a bow on the side. There’s also a gold Nappa Laminato variety for the more jazzy babies out there.

Check Out @louboutinworld Christian Louboutin’s Very First Baby Shoes for @goop ! As part of its exclusive limited-edition collaboration with Christian Louboutin — the lifestyle brand got the celebrated French shoe designer to design his very first baby shoe. Set to launch on Nov. 16, the new Loubibaby features an adorably chic Mary Jane design, detailed with a handmade bow and Louboutin’s signature red sole. The shoe comes in both pink and blue satin versions, as well as a gold Nappa Laminato version. Gwyneth remarked: “Goop’s fashion ethos has always centered on trendless quality. It was an honor to work with Christian and his team to design the quintessential collection of fall classics.” #blondeBLAKE #REGHANBLAKE #christianlouboutin #loubibaby #loubibabyshoes #goop #gwenethpaltrow #collaboration #babyshoes #satin #blue #red #gold #redsole #details #fashion #style #baby #anoccasionforeveryoutfit #allthingsbeautifulandinteresting
So cute we could eat them.
The collection will launch on Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle site Goop on November 16, making the perfect Christmas gift idea for any mums to be.
Costing $250 (£188), they’re expensive for a shoe your baby will grow out of in three months, sure, but we go back to our first point: CUTEEEEEE.
“I remember the first conversation which led us to the collaboration,” said Louboutin of the partenership. “There is nothing that I favour more than a good tête-à-tête, and for that, Gwyneth is a great partner in crime. When friendship meets work, the results are serious fun.”
But the big question is will they feature Louboutin’s signature red sole? Well of COURSE!
Your baby is about to out-sass all the other babies.
