U.S. Customs' seizure of over 20,000 pairs of fake Christian Louboutin shoes in late July wasn't the only bust this summer. Also in July, local police in Singapore seized 25 counterfeit pairs during a Court-ordered raid of popular shopping center, Far East Plaza. According to a Louboutin spokesman, legal actions have been initiated stemming from the raid. Lastly, in France, 2015 pairs bearing counterfeit red soles were confiscated and destroyed in France earlier this summer. The increase in the number of seizures likely coincides with Louboutin's strict policing of its trademarked red soles leading up to and during its pending litigation with fellow luxury brand, Yves St. Laurent.
