A simple summertime wedge is sometimes all a girl needs to be happy. Now what’s shocking is that this simple wedge is by Christian Louboutin – the Liberace of shoemakers! No crazy 7 inch wedge. No crazy accouterments. Just a nice pinkish/mauve patent leather shoe. If only one could “simply” find $595 to pay for this much simplicity. But oh well, how do the French say – c’est la vie!

Steve Madden “WISSPER” Slingback Wedge Sandals

Now let me introduce you to the Robin Hood of the shoe world, Mr. Steve Madden. Bringing (and copying) designer heels for less and giving them to the poor (yet oh-so-fab) people! Once again, he doesn’t disappoint with his “WISSPER” slingback wedge. The only truly detectable difference is the thicker slingback strap and buckle. Other than that, for $68.07 (sale price!) this is a great steal. Available in black, teal, fuchsia and white patent as well as black suede, natural linen, navy fabric and leopard.

For the red sole collectors with an urban sense of style, these kicks by Christian Louboutin screamed “Take me home tonight,” (before they were completely sold out)! Stars are being spotted out and about wearing more high tops than ever, and leading the pack is the beautiful, trendsetting Rihanna. If this is your favorite kind of footwear, or you just love to live in the limelight, wear them with shorts or skinny jeans to really show them off. For the red sole admirers, there is another set of shiny silver spikes waiting for you… so scroll down to see what we found!

Update (04/28/2016): So apparently Steve Madden decided to come up with a new, updated Christian Louboutin Louis look-alike recently. This dupe is much more spot-on than the first one which I love! Available in black, red and silver for $129.95.

Jeffrey Campbell “Alva” Studded High Top Sneakers

Update (07/14/2012): And here we go with another fantastic Louboutin alternative. Now that doesn’t happen too often, but I think in this case I kind of prefer Jeffrey Campbell‘s take on the spiked sneaker shoe. What do you think?

Steve Madden “TWYNKLE” Spiked Sneakers

If comfortable shoes are your thing, and trendsetting is your mission… don’t miss a beat and snag this pair by Steve Madden so you can begin channeling your inner Rock-‘n-Roll goddess. Especially because even at $785, the real deal is already sold out everywhere. While at $64.99 (sale price!), the pair below isn’t exactly a bargain, but they are still a steal considering the material, craftsmanship and apparent attention to detail. Not sure about how the grey pair will look for summer? They are also available in black suede, white, mint and gold!

Christian Louboutin is the mastermind behind the designer footwear aesthetic. Often considered to be one of the most well known designers, his designs are truly never lackluster and always exude luxury. Capturing our attention a few months ago were the Pigalle Plato Pumps, and now these Pigalle 120 Patent-Leather Pumps do just the same. This papaya-pink color featured below is simply amazing with the addition of a pointed toe. Before, I never really appreciated any pointy toe shoes, however these pumps have sincerely changed my perspective. Priced at $625, I, for one will not be purchasing these any time soon. Conversely, take a look at more affordable versions of these pumps below!

Aldo “Stessy” Neon Stiletto Pumps

Update (04/22/2016): Spotted these neon pink Aldo pumps and thought they’d be a great alternative if you’re looking for a budget-friendly alternative to the neon colored Louboutin Pigalles above. The silhouette of these stiletto pumps is more spot-on to Louboutin’s “So Kate“, but I think it also serves well as a dupe for the Pigalle. Also available in various other colors and uppers.

Alloy “Molly” Heels

Our most affordable steal, priced at $14.99 (sale price!), are these Alloy “Molly” heels. Simply put, I love this color! With summer shortly approaching, I have been craving bright colors in my wardrobe and this shoe is the perfect way to incorporate them. These also come in neon yellow for even more vividness. Truly an eye capturing shoe, one can make quite a statement in these heels.

Devious Sexy-20 Stiletto Pumps

Out of all the featured look-a-likes, this one by Devious appears to be the most significant because it very closely resembles the Louboutins. The patent shine, color, and super elongated heel are perfectly intact and maintain that Louboutin-esque look. With this type of shoe, it’s very difficult to go wrong especially when it radiates such a bold energy. Ultimately, these can be worn as a transition to summer and even in the winter for a nice pop of color.

Topshop “GAME” Pointed Court Shoes

Topshop is definitely one of my favorite stores due to their eclectic wardrobe varieties. Not to mention, these “Game” Pointed Court Shoes are absolutely beautiful. Though these are a bit pricier than the other alternatives above, I believe that they will become a permanent staple in one’s closet. They complement any outfit, and provide that extra vitality to spice up a dull look. I would love to pair them with perfectly tailored pants, but the wardrobe possibilities are simply superfluous.

Christian Louboutin has done a lot of extreme and fetish-like shoes in the last couple years, but my favorites would have to be Louboutin’s “simpler”, more classic creations. Just like the “Alta Rita” pictured below. A paramount example for a perfect evening shoe: sparkly and glamorous yet not too distracting and with a feminine and elegant shape and a heel that is high but not impossibly so. I absolutely love how Kate Bosworth paired hers with a beautiful white Chanel frock. Such a classy look!

Adrianna Papell “Fiji” Embellished Slingback Pumps

Update (03/28/2016): When I first saw these lovely rhinestone embellished slingback pumps by Adrianna Papell, they immediately reminded me of the Alta Rita Louboutins above. They’re not an identical dupe, but the overall look is still the same. Available on sale for $74.87 in various colors.

Ivanka Trump “Galantz” Slingback Sandals

Clearly, not everyone can afford to buy Louboutins, so here you go with an almost just as fabulous alternative by Ivanka Trump which will cost you roughly a fifth of the original Louboutin heels. Apart from a few minor details and minus the red luscious sole that Christian Louboutin is so famous for, the look of our budget-friendly Loubie version is pretty much identical. You like?

Dear “Pigalle“, I know you won’t like this, but there’s a new queen in town, her name is “So Kate” aka shoe perfection and she is probably Louboutin‘s hottest and most coveted style at the moment. One look at her and you will instantly understand why. The shiny black leather, the thinning stiletto heel, the perfectly shaped arch – everything about this shoe is just perfect! Plus, while the price of $675 sure isn’t exactly a bargain, compared to what other Louboutin styles are usually retailing for, these here are on the rather budget-friendlier side of the designer shoe price range. Which is also probably the reason why “So Kate” is constantly on the verge of selling out at nearly every e-tailer. Anyway, this beauty of a high heel has definitely taken the #1 spot on my current shoe wish list and until I have saved up the neccessary $675 to bring them home, I’ll settle for a more less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Et voilà, check out “PROTO” by Steve Madden! Yes, I know it’s not a total spot-on dupe and that it’s not as delicate and immaculately curved as the real deal Louboutins, but “PROTO” is probably still the best shot you’ve got at “So Kate” on a budget. At least for now. $44.99 (sale price!) and you’re wearing Louboutin for less, girl! Available in various lovely colors and uppers: black, blush, pink, white, red, yellow and natural snake.
