I tried a greatly reviewed product "Protect Your Pumps" to conserve the red soles for my Louboutins and they completely ruined them! It is a stixker that you stick to the bottom of your soles for protection. They advertise no residue and easy removal and that definitely wasn't the case for my Louboutins. Not only did it leave a sticky residue on most of the sole, it removed the red paint off the bottoms! I took them off after ONE wear (and with NO wet conditions) They recommend removing the adhesive after 3-4 wears. I wore my shoes out one time for about 3 hours, not on any gravel, mostly on tile and carpet. After horrifyingly realizing what was happening while removing them, I removed the stickers on the pair I have yet to wear and they turned out worse. Luckily, I have touch up paint which I repaired the torn off paint (still not the same!) but now I am left with soles that could have been better off without them. Ladies, DO NOT use this product for your precious red bottoms!!
