If there's one thing you can say about Christian Louboutin, it's that he fights hard. Anyone that has paid attention to the headlines over the past year will know that the designer has fiercely but unsuccessfully battle to protect his red soles against Yves Saint Laurent. Sadly, a court decided against him again in a case against Zara.
Today France's final court of appeal upheld the June 2011 decision in favour of Zara, allowing them to sell red-soled shoes. Just to put salt into the wound, the judge also ordered the brand to pay £2,000 compensation for the legal of bills of Inditex, the Spanish retail giant that owns Zara.
