New Louboutin dress shoe 'Gareth' is anything but pedestrian 

Christian Louboutin's newest shoe is named after openly gay former Welsh international rugby player Gareth Thomas.

This is the second shoe the French luxury brand has named after the gay athlete.

The 6ft 3in Gareth, also known as Alfie, was previously honored with a range of 'Alfie' flats that start at £580 ($895 €682). The new leather dress shoe combines a classic wing tip with the Louboutin signature red sole.
