Why should girls have all the fun? Shoe brand Christian Louboutin opened its first US men's-only store in New York's Meatpacking district on August 30th, barely making its August deadline. Although the label has been displaying men's styles in its stores for a while now, this is the first time it is focusing entirely on men. The shop is designed to resemble the industrial look of its surroundings. Womenswear Daily reports that, apart from the signature red carpet, the shop features leather panels on the floor and even a piece of railroad track from the High Line. 

Upstairs, there is a tattoo parlour where customers can get their tattoos inked on their brogues.

Not only does the shop retail shoes like its famous studded sneakers and brogues, but it also has an extensive range of handbags, backpacks and iPad cases. After its debut in New York, Louboutin is set to open its Los Angeles store in November.
