After winning the case of the red soles over Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin is definitely breathing a lot easier.
Under a new ruling, Louboutin's red bottom trademark applies to all of his designs, except for all-red shoes, which gives YSL the right to continue to sell their monochrome pump.
YSL attorney, David Bernstein called the ruling a "stunning victory", adding

Less than a week after a New York judge denied Christian Louboutin's request for an injunction against Yves Saint Laurent, the shoe designer is appealing the decision.
On Friday, Monsieur Louboutin's lawyer Harley Lewin filed an appeal to oppose YSL's move for summary judgment.
As of last week YSL said they were in the process of making the request for summary judgment because Judge Victor Marrero doesn't think Louboutin can prove why he needs a trademark on his shoes.
If granted, Louboutin's trademark could be canceled, which is why Lewin says his client plans to "fight like hell".
A hearing is scheduled for August 19th, so stay tuned.
