  • Kate Middleton received a pair of Louboutin boots from Victoria Beckham on her 30th birthday.

    Turns out Victoria Beckham is one heck of a gift giver. According to Christian Louboutin, she’s been handing out Christian Louboutin shoes – to none other than Kate Middleton for her 30th birthday. Best present ever.

    ‘I know that Victoria Beckham offered her a pair of my boots and she looked great in them. She’s been photographed wearing my boots. She looked fantastic,’ he told The Times.

    Owning a pair of Louboutins is a feat, but walking in them is a different story. ‘I don’t think of comfort when I’m designing a shoe. You can’t,’ he said.

    ‘Of course, things need to be done properly – a shoe is made to be walked in – but creatively I’m not thinking about comfort at all. The first emotion I want to provoke is: “How beautiful! How sexy!” I don’t want people to think, “How comfortable.”’

    But, Mr Louboutin clearly has the right idea. With this fierce mentality, he’s managed to create some of the most recognizable shoes in the world.
