London: French footwear designer Christian Louboutin says high heels are like "pleasure with pain" and women should not wear them if they can`t walk in them.
The 49-year-old says he has no sympathy for women who complain about wearing skyscraper heels.
"I really have not so much sympathy. If Tina Turner and Prince`s back-up band can perform on stage in them for three hours, you can`t tell me they are impossible to walk in. High heels are pleasure with pain. If you can`t walk in them, don`t wear them," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Louboutin as saying.
