America has voted, and Christian Louboutin’s crystal-embellished mesh peep-toe pump is the sexiest shoe of the year.
Nearly 8,000 consumers weighed in on 23 designer heels in the online FN Sexy Shoes contest, and the red-sole king took the top prize.
FN Editorial Director Michael Atmore unveiled the honor during an exclusive event at Saks Fifth Avenue’s 10022-SHOE floor on Thursday.
Louboutin’s director of communications, Shawna Rose, told the crowd that the designer’s shoes were like his girls and the winning pair “was one of his favorite girls.”
The runners-up in the contest included heels from Giuseppe Zanotti, Dolce & Gabbana and Jimmy Choo.
Also in attendance at the shopping event were Saks CEO Steve Sadove, President and Chief Merchandising Officer Ron Frasch, and VP and DMM of women’s shoes Tracy Margolies.
