I know a number of members were unhappy with red soles they purchased which were nearly 3mm thick. I think the general opinion was they were more appropriate for heavy boots, rather than designer ladies shoes. My question is, given the choice, would you prefer the thinner 1.8mm soles or an extremely thin 1mm sole? In making a choice between the two you need to remember that any new sole will initially wear off it's top, patterned, surface far quicker than the bulk of the sole material. Therefore, the thickness will reduce slightly after a few outings. So what I'm really asking is, would you prefer the thinnest (1mm) sole, which will hardly show but need more frequent trips to the cobbler OR the slightly thicker (1.8mm) sole, which will show slightly more until it has been worn a little? Obviously, the thinnest (1mm) material will mean you will have to trust your precious Louboutins to the cobbler more often I did ask my local cobbler about the two choices and he recommended the 1.8mm, but then again he does not own any CL shoes It is probably quite obvious, to most, why I am asking this question. I am down to my last 6 pairs and need to order more. The minimum 1/2 sole order is 400 pairs :s so I need to make a decision fast and ultimately it is your preference that really counts. P.S. Sorry, but there may be a delay until the new soles become available again.
