Ladies, please don’t do this. According to Britain’s Telegraph, cash-strapped ladies are painting the soles of their shoes red in order to make them look like Louboutins:

Sales of red gloss colours such as Duracoat’s ‘Flame’ and ‘Show Stopper’ have soared by 40 per cent compared to the same period last year and Homebase claim the surge is due to women copying the Louboutin shoes worn by their style icons which retail for up to £635.

Here’s the thing: no one gives a shit if you’re wearing Loubs. Seriously. People just don’t care. What they DO care about is if you think it’s so important to appear to have more money than you do that you’ll fake a pair of fancy shoes in order to trick people.

In other words, people care if you’re a superficial liar.
