Christian Louboutin

UPDATE: This post has been updated on March 20, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Christian Louboutin makes some of the finest shoes in the world. Louboutins are a celebrity’s staple buys and no red carpet would be complete without at least one pair of the red-soled high heels. Louboutin’s “Pigalle” pump is timeless with its classic and sleek design. It’s probably Louboutin’s bestselling and most famous shoe ever. Not to mention expensive.

The Highest Heel “Hottie” Pumps

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are. Just look at the extreme high heel or the pointed toe, it looks just like the real deal. And the best thing: they are on sale right now. But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

So let me be honest with you. At first, I kind of hated Christian Louboutin‘s Daffodile pumps. They looked too stripperish, too high, just totally OTT. However, the more I saw these extreme platform pumps being flaunted by celebs on and off the red carpet the more I started to like them. Not sure what changed my mind about these… maybe the extra few inches gained by wearing these sky-high beauties? I’m not sure, but I do know that I certainly don’t like the $995 price tag attached to these designer heels.

If you had to pick one pair of shoes to give you that extra boost of confidence on any given day, these stunners by Christian Louboutin would be my choice. You can’t wear them and NOT have everyone looking at you. So, what will you wear with them? Will it include a pair of scene-stealing jeans or perhaps a figure-accentuating skirt? Either way, get ready to turn some heads. Wait, are you thinking: “How will I ever afford these?” – it’s OK, we’ve found hope. Take a look below!

Last week we showed you the gorgeous turquoise suede version of Christian Louboutin‘s “Super Domblasle” cork platforms and today we’re highlighting the quite as lustworthy shiny patent version. I’m still torn on the extreme platform, but all in all I do love the design. The price? Not so much.

bebe “Leah” Cork Wedge Sandals

Even though bebe is known for their sky-high heels, in the case of copying the “Super Dombasle” they weren’t quite brave enough to go all the way and copy the 3 inch platform as well. Instead they reduced it by 50% and put a silly flower on the ankle strap; probably to distract from the fact that otherwise it’s pretty much an identical twin of the CL version. But yes, the flower is detachable. Thank God!
