To celebrate Christian Louboutin's 20 years in the business, Fashionista.com decided to culminate some of his most outrageous shoes. With each passing shoe, I became more and more obsessed. I've always envisioned the epitome of Louboutin to be a classic black heel with a classic red sole, but these shoes are totally blowing my classic-shoe loving mind.
