Updated: Quick and easy way to protect your red bottoms

Standard

A few weeks ago, I finally got to cross an item off my wish/bucket list. I got myself a pair of Louboutins, and I’m still in love with them! Before purchasing them, I googled ways to protect the bottoms, because hello, you pay that much money, you want to keep the bottoms red! 
I kept seeing online, people talk about using Zagg screen protectors on them, so that’s what I did too. I ordered mine from eBay. All you have to do is cut it to fit your shoe, and you’re good to go! I wore mine for the first time today outside, and I’m so excited that this trick works! You can see the wear is only on the screen protector, not my shoe! I’ll probably change it after a few more times just because I don’t like to see the dirt or scuffs, you guessed it, I’m a bit OCD 😊 I will warn you though, be extremely careful when you’re taking them off to put on a new one because when I tried to get air bubbles out while putting it on, I wasn’t gentle enough and the paint started to lift on the corner. But hey, worse would have happened without having them on to begin with, so I won’t cry…for now 😌 Most people choose the protective soles to protect their soles, but I just don’t know if I want to go that route. A cobbler basically scrapes off the red paint and then puts on a thin rubber sole…I think I like this approach better because I keep the original sole, and I keep my red paint in tip top condition. Works for me!  

Here’s the Zagg screen protector I ordered from eBay. They’re much cheaper here than in stores like Best Buy. Because it comes with a back and front cover, you have enough for at least 2 pair of shoes! The seller I ordered from also still has them available here

  

  Update: don’t do it!!!!! I was wrong, when I went to remove the screen protector, the paint peeled off too 😫 

I had to take them to a cobbler to get protective soles. I’m pleased with the results, but I hate I even tried this trick to begin with!
