The Christian Louboutin vs. YSL battle over red soles took a sharp turn into crazy town yesterday when the case hit a Manhattan court. Judge Victor Marrero decided that he needed more time to review the facts over whether a preliminary injunction should be granted to stop the sale of the YSL heels, and then left while saying, "Nice shoes." He said this, of course, because "red pumps and sandals were strewn everywhere" in the courtroom. [WWD via The Cut]
