Christian Louboutin,famous for designing high-heeled footwear,insists he doesn’t set out to create “painful” shoes but admits he values sexiness,design and beauty higher than comfort.

“People say I am the king of painful shoes. I don’t want to create painful shoes,but it is not my job to create something comfortable. I try to make high heels as comfortable as they can be,but my priority is design,beauty and sexiness. I’m not against them,but comfort is not my focus,” he said.

Louboutin is celebrating 20 years in fashion this year and the designer says his biggest career moment was creating the shoes worn at Yves Saint Laurent’s final couture show the only time the late designer ever collaborated with someone else,reported Femalefirst.

‘I created those shoes just because I wanted to and I gave them to my dear friend Loulou de la Falaise. She wore them in front of Saint Laurent and he loved them and used them in his finale. When he was alive,he really was our biggest creative – it was such an honour.”
