The day has finally come: Louboutin's baby shoes are back.

Christian Louboutin made waves last year when, in collaboration with Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop, the signature red soled shoes were first released in mini form. Now, a limited-edition capsule collection has made them available once again.

Anyone with a child between 6 and 9 months (or entering that window soon) should snap these up quick—there's no telling when, or if, they'll be on sale again. And with only 600 in stock, they're sure to go fast.

Would you buy Louboutins for your kids?

No way! They trash their shoes.

Why not? If I can have fancy shoes, my kids can too.

"I love the idea of transposing the proportions of women’s shoe detailing onto a baby shoe," Louboutin told Vogue. "That’s how I worked on the bow pattern. I wanted to give it a Walt Disney cartoon–type look which parents, including myself, usually fall in love with."

The shoes come in three colors: a bold red, which blends seamlessly into the iconic sole, and two graphic takes on the brand's upcoming Loubigraf collection, which was inspired by graffiti. Now that the miniature version is on sale, Louboutin devotees can achieve ultimate mommy-and-me status.

If you're worried these booties are just a gimmick, don't worry: Louboutin went above and beyond to craft these miniature pairs. It was "a new challenge for our artisans to work on baby shoes, since the techniques are completely different from those you use for a men’s or women’s shoe," he said. "We had to work very closely on the craftsmanship but I am very happy with the result."

Judging by the success of the first Louboutin baby release, he's not the only one that's pleased to see them.
