Christian Louboutin teamed up with designer Henri Tai to create looks for the Cuban athletes to wear during formal, non-competitive events and they are stunning. The shoe designer went all out creating jackets, pants and, of course, shoes for the Caribbean island’s athletic team.
And these outfits are tight af.
According to Louboutin and Henri, the two were inspired to dress the Cuban Olympic team after a photo shoot in the island nation.
Men were given some super stylish and hip high tops and women get to rock some kitten heels. And, yes, they have that signature red shoe sole.
“It's that elegance and fluidity of movement of someone who is so in control of their body that fascinates me. At the Olympics, it feels like these athletes put on performance gear and simultaneously turn into these superheroes that defy gravity, that defy time, that defy all rules of physics. We designed the celebratory outfit for the moment they turn back into humans, still in that glory moment, still in their light but heading back to the real world. We really want them to continue feeling amazing in their skin while looking astonishing.” – Christian Louboutin #CLxSportyHenri
