The iconic (trademarked) red soles were made famous by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and, lately, Kim Kardashian. The brand—status symbol, really—has been available locally at Neiman Marcus and Jeffrey, but now we have our own jewel box of a store at Buckhead Atlanta. Besides the red soles, Louboutins are known for glittery embellishment, wild patterns, and towering heels that can make a woman more than six inches taller. (The boost matches the sky-high prices: Pumps start at around $675, but add some decoration and you’re in four digits.) Something special for Atlanta? Two lizard-skin bags—one clutch, one messenger-style—to go with your exotic-print boots.
