Red soles no longer limited to Louboutins

Are you a fan of Christian Louboutin's red soles?

Because they are no longer exclusive to the French footwear giant.

A New York court ruled today that although the red soles were a signature of the brand they could not stop others like rivals Yves Saint Laurent from doing the same thing.

The judge said the brand can not prove it is entitled to trademark protection because in fashion colour serves "an ornamental and aesthetic function vital to robust competition.

A law suit was filed in April claiming that YSL shoes would mislead customers familiar with Louboutins.
It relates in particular to YSL's 2011 Cruise collection: The Tribute Tribtoo, Palais and Woodstock models, which all have red soles.
