A Christian Louboutin Shoe Broke The Condé Nast Escalator

Yes, this actually happened. A Chrisitian Louboutin high heel proved it's way more than a cab-to-curb kind of shoe. And it proved its power in the best way possible: by literally breaking an escalator. The only place this incident could possibly occur? One World Trade Center, a.k.a. Condé Nast headquarters, a.k.a the most expected location ever.

It appears that as its shoe-designer owner, Nareesha McCaffrey, was getting ready to step off onto solid ground, the shoe got stuck and was consequently abandoned. Sources close to the shoe say that its thin heel found its way into the cracks of the escalator, creating an unprecedented incident that was good for no one.

Let’s hope the stars align for this Condé Cinderella, who posted this heartfelt note: "I left you guys a souvenir. RIP my @louboutinworld it just died at the Condé Nast." We feel her pain, because honestly, one Loub is nothing without the other.
