Everyone knows how Beautiful and Classic Christian Louboutin pumps are with the glossy red bottom. They are a closet staple and their integrity should be maintained! Some people just wear the shoes without protecting the bottoms and the red sole becomes scuffed very easily. Others may spend $60-$100+ having the bottoms professionally protected by a Shoe cobbler. I’ve also seen products online where you can buy sole protectors for about $30 for 2. These adhesive protectors peel off easily and need to be replaced after it becomes worn. This means ANOTHER $30 would need to be spent for more sole protectors.

I found a cheap alternative that is comparable to the adhesive sole protectors but for half the price. This method does require some work but saves money in the end. The adhesive roll listed below from amazon is approx. $20. This roll can be used to cut out multiple sole protectors so you will save money in the long run. See below.

The product is 3M Scotchgard Clear Paint Protector Vinyl Film roll.

See below for steps!

Step 1: Unroll vinyl film
Step 2: Place shoe sole on vinyl roll
Step 3: Trace the sole shape on the vinyl roll with a pencil or pen
Step 4: Cut out tracing
Step 5: Make sure the tracing fits the bottom of the shoe
Step 6: Remove white background to expose clear adhesive side.
Step 7: Line up the adhesive and Place on sole. Make sure the bottom of the shoe is clean before you place adhesive to reduce possibility of bubbles in clear film.
All done for this shoe!! Repeat for other shoe!!

I suggest placing two sole protectors on each shoe, just in case you are stepping on rocky gravel or something that my puncture the protector. If two are used, one protector can be removed easily and the bottom of your shoe is still protected.

*Disclaimer* Clear adhesive film may strip red paint if attempting to remove from sole. If you think you will want to remove the clear adhesive, I would not suggest trying this method for sole protection.
