Hubbies, deny sex & you might pay through the Christian Louboutin toes

Here’s proof Christian Louboutin Shoes that shoes can substitute for sex in a marriage. Footwear fetishist and professional poker player Beth Shak was so obsessed with stilettos, she sported a tattoo of Christian Louboutin red-soled heels on her pelvic bone, just north of her private parts. One would hope that her husband, Daniel, would notice the naked cry for pedestrian help. But then you’d be as wrong as a fugly pair of Birkenstocks paired with fuzzy woolen socks. Ick. In what was shaping up as the Accessories Trial of the Century, Shak’s ex-husband, financially hurting hedge-funder Daniel Shak, claimed he was clueless about the existence of his wife’s 1,200 pairs of flats, wedges and ornate flip-flops. We’re talking some 700 pairs by Louboutin alone, whose fanciful, arch-crunching confections run between $600 and $4,000 a set . There was a sparkly pair of ruby red slippers by Alexander McQueen, fit for Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz.’’ The stash also included pairs by Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Yves St. Laurent and Steve Madden. Plus, Beth had an entire closet dedicated to random “functional’’ footwear she picked up at DSW. Aldo, too. It’s enough to make New York’s dedicated shoe freaks weak at the ankles. The shoe lover’s dream, and husbandly agony, must have been hidden, Daniel Shak claimed, inside a “secret room’’ in the couple’s Fifth Avenue apartment. So Daniel sued his ex, whom he divorced three years ago, for hundreds of thousands of dollars in a court near a home they once shared outside Philadelphia. He claimed Beth’s surreptitious shoe stash was worth a million bucks, and he was entitled to 35 percent in their divorce settlement. But yesterday, he dropped the case. He said he didn’t want his stepdaughter to have to testify. Beth said Daniel knew he would lose. But the fun didn’t stop until the closet door was ripped from its hinges on a fantasy world about which most of us can only daydream. Tucked into nooks and crannies of Beth Shak’s obscenely appointed closet were more strappy sandals and kicky bondage-wear platforms than one can wear in a lifetime. The space contained enough kitten heels to satisfy junior shoe addict Suri Cruise who, by age 5, was said to possess footwear valued at $150,000. Well, she’s got time to catch up. Not that Shak was without her problems. She complained to an interviewer that Louboutin had started making 6-inch heels. But her closet was set up only for 4-inch heels. What to do? It was a bona-fide rich person’s crisis. Shak evidently had an undiagnosed shoe problem. Now she calls it a “sickness’’ suffered by a woman starved for human love. But disease or not, the shoe disease was not exactly a secret. Shak was written up everywhere for her below-the-knees fixation, and was featured in a documentary called “God Save My Shoes,’’ which explores “the intimate relationship’’ between women and their high heels, according to a description on IMDb.com. Daniel Shak paid for Beth’s shoes, though, it seems, he never read the bills. Then he reportedly lost millions on gold futures. More at a Las Vegas poker tournament this month, which may be what this case was all about. It’s weird, but not surprising, Beth Shak had a kinky relationship with an article of clothing. Daniel Shak should have noticed her lady parts. It’s cheaper. Christian Louboutin

Christian Christian Louboutin Louboutin Breaks Records With Design Museum Exhibition

It seems the glamor of the high heeled shoe is as magnetic as Christian Louboutin ever, seeing as Christian Louboutin's exhibition at the Design Museum in London has stomped all over the museum's previous records. Louboutin's heels are known for their iconic shiny red soles, but they are famous for their stratospheric heights -- many reaching over four and a half inches. The video above explains the UK exhibition aims to give some background behind the iconic footwear, telling the story behind the style. It may also be a chance for many to get up close to the notoriously expensive shoes without breaking the bank. With upwards of 38,000 visitors since it opened in May 1, the exhibition seems to elicit the same fervor as Alexander McQueen's exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last year. We're wondering how many times romance novelist Danielle Steel (who allegedly owns over 6,000 pairs) has been to see the show. For images from the exhibition, check out Vogue's incredible slideshow here and watch the video above to get the scoop on the French legend.  Christian Louboutin Shoes

Christian Louboutin Makes $1,095 Christian Louboutin Outlet Shoe From Recycled Trash

Would you pay a grand for a shoe made Christian Louboutin of trash? Well, you might if it sports Christian Louboutin’s iconic red sole. Available at Neiman Marcus for no less than $1,095, the luxury designer’s new “Ecotrash” slingback incorporates actual detritus from the atelier’s dumpster, including thread, postage stamps, leftover sequins, and fabric swatches from past seasons. Although the shoe gets a gold star for effort, we’re not completely “soled” on the toxic coat of PVC that makes up most of the pricey platform. And genuine python skin? Hardly sustainable. Nix those two and bring down the price tag a notch, CL, then we’ll talk Christian Louboutin Outlet.
