There was a rare SF sighting of the man behind the illustrious, eponymous shoe brand Christian Louboutin over the weekend. According to local PR guru Allison Speer's Instagram, he was here to check in on his new store and to "see old friends." He was looking dapper in a crisp white shirt, pale blue slacks, and Christian Louboutin Bruno Orlato shoes ($895). [Instagram]
