Hi everyone, hope you have all had a good weekend. I just wanted to ask you all for some advice as I am in a bit of a pickle!
I have one pair of Louboutins which I've had for 2 years now, and as you can see from the photo below, the soles are pretty wrecked. I also want to point out that these have only been worn 3 times - atrocious in my opinion. I probably won't be buying another pair of Louboutins in a hurry because although they are GORGEOUS, the condition they got in after 3 wears is sickeningly unacceptable. The sole is made out of red leather, so wear and tear is expected. But I did not expect this kind of wear and tear so soon when I have paid over £400 for them. I've had Topshop heels that cost just £65 which saw me through a whole year of nights out without any repairs being done! How's that for a comparison?!

As you can see from the photo below, they look fine to still be worn - the wear and tear is concealed as it is on the part of the sole you walk on.
What I want is some advice on whether I should get the soles professionally repaired at Christian Louboutin? Or should I get red rubber soles attached to the sole that hits the ground by a (reputable! of course!) cobbler?
Getting the red leather redone at Louboutin would look a lot better and my mind would be at ease knowing that they would repair my babies back to their pristine condition. However, the same wear and tear is bound to happen again quickly after - so is it a waste of money?
The red rubber soles will last a long time and I can trot around in my Louboutins untill my hears content. BUT it will ruin the look of them from the underneath - only I will know, of course. But it still matters to me.
