LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal customs officials have stopped more than 20,000 pairs of counterfeit luxury shoes from tip-toeing into the U.S. from China.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection Spokesman Jaime Ruiz said four shipments of fake Christian Louboutin (loo-boo-tan) shoes were seized Tuesday, and another shipment was seized July 27.
Ruiz said the shoes could have sold for a total of $18 million in the U.S.
The vaunted French designer's shoes come in an array of colors and styles, often commanding thousands of dollars per pair from well-heeled customers.
