Christian Louboutin, the shoe designer, has said it does not matter to him if women are in pain when they wear his shoes saying: “If you can’t walk in them, then don’t wear them.”
Louboutin said high heels are ”pleasure with pain” adding that he had no sympathy for women complain about wearing the shoes because he once saw Tina Turner perform for three hours in Madison Square Garden in New York wearing a pair.
Despite being famed for the red soles of his shoes he has previously admitted his trademark happened by chance.
He said: ”This shoe arrived back from the factory but for some reason it didn’t look quite as good as my sketch. So I used a bottle of red polish to coat the underside of the shoe scarlet. Problem solved.”
