Christian Louboutin's limited-edition "Peace of Shoe"

Christian Louboutin is unveiling a limited-edition look to benefit microfinance, which provides the poor with access to loans to start and run businesses.

The designer produced just 33 pairs of a style called Peace of Shoe, a classic peep-toe platform covered in silk satin and trimmed with hand-stitched and embroidered Indian ribbon.

The shoes, which are numbered and signed by Louboutin and retail for $1,495, are available now in three of the designer’s stateside stores. In New York, it’s offered in champagne; in Miami in lavender; and in Los Angeles in pink.

Louboutin was inspired by the book “Creating a World Without Poverty,” written by Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank and Grameen Foundation, a microfinance group.

“When I read this book, I fell in love with this wonderful man — his ideas and his ideals,” Louboutin said in a statement.

All proceeds from the sale of the shoes will benefit microfinance. Louboutin’s charity of choice is the Grameen Foundation.
