My 10 Favorite Christian Louboutin Sneakers
In 1992, Christian Louboutin launched his namesake label with two close friends in Paris, and the following year, the signature red sole was created.
Widely credited for producing standout footwear and statement-making bags, Christian Louboutin’s signature red soles are not reserved for just high heels. They’re also the iconic detail found on his equally elegant men’s shoes.
A red carpet staple for stars like Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey, Louboutin’s men’s footwear is at once edgy, fashion-forward and polished. The line ranges from studded loafers to colorful, on-trend sneakers, and here you can shop my selection for the best of Louboutin’s men’s sneakers out right now.
Red Runner Flat Version Multi Neoprene
The creativity and innovative design of Louboutin is revealed in the avant-garde look and cutting-edge technology of this sneaker. The Red Runner is set on an airy and bouncy rubber running outsole, featuring a mix of materials on its upper of wet leather, neoprene, veal velours, trimmed with a black and white grosgrain piping finish, dipped in electric hues and adorned with spikes.
Rankick Flat Mandorla Suede
A variation on the Rantus style, Christian Louboutin’s Mandorla-colored suede delivers just the right amount of attitude. The high-top sneaker features a streamlined upper atop a chunky contrasting cup sole made of three cutouts in calfskin and patent leather. A wider heel makes for greater comfort.
Cavala Uomo Flat Black Leather
Cavala Uomo is a smooth black calfskin vintage high-top sneaker. The rich dark monochrome provides the ideal canvas to showcase the engraved metal buttons that serve as a closure. Set on white sturdy rubber outsoles, detailed topstitching provides elegant, bold lines.
Rantulow Orlato Men's Flat Violetta Satin
Inspired by the retro trend, Louboutin takes a fresh approach on the iconic Rantulow Orlato low-top sneakers with this version made from violet satin. These rounded-toe sneakers adjust with laces. This model also has a pull-tab at the back and a grosgrain trim finish.

Aurelien Flat Navy Suede
Christian Louboutin's black Aurelien sneakers are the embodiment of technical prowess.

These low tops, designed with a neoprene sock, feature a unique and sophisticated cup sole construction—made of five different molds—that cradles the foot and balances style and comfort. The Marine set is crafted in a mix of calfskin, veau velours and patent leather, has a pronounced pull-tab, grosgrain piping finish and a vibrant signature red lining.
