Christian Louboutin Against Racism
The Walk A Mile In My Shoes collection was created in collaboration with Christian Louboutin and Idris Elba to draw attention to issues of racial injustice. The death of the black boy George Floyd under the suppression of the US police, created a wave of Black Lives Matter, protesting against discrimination against black people globally since last year. The public has awakened and re-evaluated the still-existing consequences of racism.
The name of the collection is an idiom “walk a mile in my shoes”. Let’s walk a long mile in my shoes. This idiom is a metaphor for putting yourself in someone else’s shoes. From there, remind about sympathy, understanding, and tolerance for differences.
100% of the profits from the collection will go to charities that stop racial injustice in the UK, US and in Africa.
Organizations include: Immediate Theatre, an organization for young children and the community in Hackney and East London. Purposeful, a feminist organization for adolescent girls. Be Rose International, an emergency humanitarian relief organization. Somali Hope Foundation, an organization that provides free, quality and equal education to youth in rural Somalia. And finally, Gathering for Justice, an organization that promotes an end to child detention and eradication of racial inequality in the justice system.
The design of the Walk A Mile In My Shoes collection
Christian Louboutin’s Walk A Mile In My Shoes collection features designs for both men and women. Most products have an accompanying title idiom. The collection uses classic shoe forms such as pointed toe shoes for women and sneakers for men.
The minimalist black design further accentuates the red slogan. Slogans are sometimes printed, or embroidered, or studded with stones. Black and red are two contrasting colors. But when combined together, they seem harmonious but impressive. Color play as a metaphor for the harmony of differences will always bring about meaningful good things.
