37-year old Louise Bawn of Bristol, England was out for a night on the town and had changed her high heels for flats to relieve her aching feet. At home, she realized one shoe was missing from her purse. The £400 pair of Christian Louboutin shoes had been a gift from her husband. Brawn said she would go to any lengths to get the shoe back, and has retraced her steps, handed out flyers, and offered a reward for the safe return of the missing shoe. She has even places a classified ad with a picture of the shoe’s mate.
"When I realised that I had lost my shoe I was devastated, totally inconsolable.Link
"I've called Louboutin and they don't make that fabric any more, so they're irreplaceable.
"I suppose it's rather like Cinderella, only I've already got my Prince Charming, it's just my shoe that I'm after."
A later story revealed that Bawn owns over 100 pairs of shoes! Link
