Loub-lovers, say hello to this limited-edition Christian Louboutin shoe—only 33 of which exist in the world. The shoe designer created this $1,495 peeptoe stiletto to benefit an organization called microfinance, which is dedicated to providing the poor with access to small business loans. WWD reports: "Louboutin was inspired by the book Creating a World Without Poverty, written by Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank and Grameen Foundation, a microfinance group. 'When I read this book, I fell in love with this wonderful man—his ideas and his ideals,' Louboutin said in a statement." [WWD]
