Christian Louboutin wins trademark protection for his lacquered red sole shoes! Also known as  Serial Number 77141789 in the trademark world. Decided by Judge Jose Cabranes in Manhattan federal court via a 31-page decision, the appellate judge reversed a lower court’s decision and ruled that Louboutin’s signature red soles were a “brand with worldwide recognition” that “qualifies for trademark protection” — except if the shoe itself is red.
