Louboutin cannot claim red sole

Shoe designer Christian Louboutin will not be able to forbid other designers to use the red sole, according to the court, who had deemed the red sole was not enough of a distinct feature.

The judge believed there was not enough clarity about which types of shoe should be 'protected', but Louboutin will have to seek other ways to protect his alleged trademark.
