Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin christian louboutin uk sale and Jimmy Choo are only a few of the famous contemporary shoe designers who owe much of their success to an early 19th century gentleman revered at the time for his style, manners and worldliness. Alfred Guillaume Gabriel, the Count d'Orsay was a nobleman and eclectic artist who married into the British aristocracy. He became a touchstone for manners, taste, understated luxury in the English royal court and high society.

Count d'Orsay won fame throughout christian louboutin shoes outlet uk France, Britain and the Rhone Valley as an painter, sculptor, diarist and wit. He was considered the "most perfect gentleman of his day". Cynics spoke of men such as Beau Brummel and the Count as "dandies". The term "dossy, commonly in use during the first half of the 19th century, was considered to be derived from his name and meant a man who was an "arbiter elegantarium."

The privileged class at that time was christian louboutin ankle boots sale very interested in all things related to fashion and vanity. Shoes and footwear were of particular interest. Since Catherine de Medici, in 16th century Italy, wore two inch heels to negate her diminutive height, the pursuit of shoes with ever-more exaggerated heels had become a passion. By the time of the reign of the famous French Sun King, Louis XIV, regal women were teetering on high soled and heeled shoes so ridiculously elevated that they required a type of ski pole to keep themselves upright.

The Count d'Orsay had been a soldier christian louboutin pumps sale in early life, and a courageous one. Uniforms and military dress were of great import to him. He was not happy with the military parade footwear of his day. He designed a military shoe for men in 1838. The profile of the shoe was quite different from pump footwear of the day, fitting more snuggly, and featuring low cut sides and a V-shaped top. The silhouette became so popular that it was soon adopted by women. The d"Orsay pump high heel shoe was thus born.
