The Best Way to Protect Christian Louboutins

Protect Your Pumps is the best way to Protect Christian Louboutin shoes.

One of the most popular questions we receive is about using Protect Your Pumps on Christian Louboutin shoes.

I pride myself on being honest and transparent with customers and potential customers about our product. In the past we’ve had some issues with Louboutins. A small number of women had issues with peeling and when this happened I felt devastated. Protect Your Pumps means the world to me and I’m here to help not hurt.

However, we’ve found a resolution to the issue and I’m so happy about that.

Our solution to avoiding any issues with Christian Louboutins and other painted soles is the double layer method. ​ After lots of research and experimenting we found that Christian Louboutin shoes and a few other brands use a high gloss lacquer to paint the soles. This lacquer is not a protective material. It is literally a coat of very fancy paint. This is why the paint immediately chips and scratches when you walk on concrete.

The lacquer is sensitive to many things. It is sensitive to weather, surface and it can be sensitive to our protective film. While most of our customers DONT have any issues with peeling because we are aware of the sensitivity we recommend using 2 pairs of protectors on painted soles. One will serve as a base that you always keep on and the top pair is changed when needed.

Our customers love this method. It gives them extra protection and assurance that their red bottoms will stay red. ​

​2. We help you show off that red bottom

​Lets keep it real, the reason you love red bottoms so much is because of the red bottom. They are a beautiful sight and should be shown off. They look horrible when scratched and they don’t look as good when they are repainted or have a fake rubber sole over them serving as a protector. Our protectors are transparent. They will allow the beauty of your red sole to shine through.

3. Easy To Apply ​

I heard someone mention using a screen protector to protect their Louboutins. No No No. It requires to much work and is actually a complicated process, you have to use this solution and application. Doing that becomes expensive, messy and time consuming. Our protectors are so easy to apply. You just trace the sole of your shoe, cut and apply. Five minutes protecting your favorite shoes before you head out the door and you are good to go!

4. Very Durable

Our protectors are made out of a military grade protective film. Its not some flimsy piece of tape this is good stuff. Depending on length of wear and surface you will get 5-10 wears out of each pair.

Most Christian Louboutin shoes are upwards of $700. A 3 pack of Protect Your Pumps cost less than $30. Buying quality designer shoes ​is an investment. Spending a little bit of money to protect your expensive purchase is totally worth it. Trust me I’ve messed up some expensive shoes in the past before which is why I started this company in the first place.
