Special Offer

"Shoes transform your body language and attitude," Christian Louboutin once said. "They lift you physically and emotionally." To that end, he is offering Marie Claire readers the gold-studded, suede Geo Pump from his fall collection, with a percentage of sale proceeds going to the Grameen Foundation, which helps microfinance institutions in communities around the world alleviate poverty by making loans and providing financial services to people, especially women, in need. Inspired by Grameen Bank founder and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Muhammad Yunus' book Creating a World Without Poverty, Louboutin first worked with Grameen in 2010, when he created the limited-edition Peace of Shoe pump to benefit the foundation. A pair of red soles is an investment, certainly—in this case, it's an investment in someone's future, too. How's that for emotionally uplifting?

THE GOODS Christian Louboutin Geo Pump, $725.

THE DEAL Available exclusively to MC readers through October. Call 1-855-355-3557 to get yours now and mention Marie Claire!

THE CAUSE The Grameen Foundation (grameenfoundation.org).
