Sole man. Inside the fashion world of footwear designer Christian Louboutin.

Watch In Louboutin’s Shoes on BBC Select

How do you go from style secret to status symbol? Just ask Louboutin. Until recently, his shoes were worn only by the fashion elite, the well-heeled and the Hollywood A-list. Now his red-soled super-heels are recognized the world over.

This biographical fashion documentary grants us access to the designer at home in Paris and Lisbon, at his workshops and his Mumbai store – in the company of the Queen of Bhutan.
