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!

Steve Madden “Levels” Spike-Studded Lace-Up High-Top Sneakers

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.

Xhilaration “Khalil” Low Top with Studs

Update (02/17/2013): Found this super affordable low top shoe by Xhilaration which looks a lot like Louboutin’s spiked Louis sneakers. Available in black, taupe and silver.

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.

Update (07/24/2012): And here’s another version of neon pink & yellow Pigalle look-a-likes. This one’s by KG Kurt Geiger and also available in white leather.

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.

New Year’s Eve Outfit – Black & Gold

by Irina on December 31, 2015

And here we are again. The last day of the year has come and once more it’s time to say our goodbyes to a year gone by so fast. Reflecting on the last 12 months: the good, the bad and the ugly makes me all melancholic, excited and thankful at the same time. I know it sounds super cliché, but I love New Year’s Eve, it always gives me that sense of new beginnings and endless possibilities laying ahead. That’s why I love to dress up on this special day and celebrate it champagne, heels and lots of glitter. This year I felt like going with a black and gold theme. Simple elegance combined with bold jewelry. Sexy and daring without being overly complicated, a mantra I also want to become my mindset in 2016. What’s yours?

New Year's Eve Outfit - Black & Gold

Go Shopping:

A few last words: make sure to say goodbye to all the bad things that have happened to you and leave them behind in the year 2015. Concentrate on a fresh, new start, reset your body and mind and do whatever makes you happy in 2016. Happy new year, everyone!

We’ve featured quite a number of Christian Louboutin shoes here on InTheirCloset and I think that’s because, other than being extremely popular with our readers, they are also what I would classify as “classic”. Louboutin pumps range from demure to over the top but almost all of them feel timeless. CL’s “Claudia” ankle-strap sandals are no exception. They are simply a new take on a tried and true shoe. Look how beloved these are by hollywood starlets and Playboy bunnies alike. You’d probably have to be either or both to swing that price tag though.

Ivanka Trump “Bulbli” Ankle Strap Sandals

Update (12/14/2010): Well, well. Seems like Ivanka Trump can add shoe designer to her resume now?! Or maybe not because her “Bulbli” sandals look like spot-on clones of Louboutin’s Claudias though I must admit they have the much nicer price tag. Available in black, red or graphite patent.

Aldo “Brodigan” Ankle Strap Sandals

Thank you, Aldo, for bringing us a shoe both lovely and affordable. No, my friends, you will not be able to show off that red sole, but if it’s class you’re looking for, look no further. Aldo’s “Brodigan” pump is the versatile, cocktail pump you’ve been looking for minus the hefty price tag. *Ding Ding*. We have a winner! Also available in a great nude color.

Seeing something as functional as a zipper being used for decorative purposes always makes me wonder what the inventor would say about this trend? Studding and zipping everything has become so omnipresent that I easily forget those elements were originally not intended to be used as decoration. Luckily those times are long gone because otherwise we wouldn’t be able to lust after these gorgeous zip sandals by Christian Louboutin. And wouldn’t this be a pity?

Chelsea + Zoe “Panama” Zipper Sandals

Update (12/02/2015): Spotted these super sexy zipper heels by Chelsea + Zoe today and thought they’d make a great look for less alternative for the Louboutins above. And did I mention they’re currently on sale for under $50? Score!

Update (02/12/2013): Didn’t think I’d find any more look-a-likes for this Louboutin style, but Sole Society came up with the “Makenna” sandal which looks very similar to the CL Rodita heels. Available in black, turquoise and orange.

Jessica Simpson “Tansas” Zip Sandals

Louboutin’s “Rodita” sandals are sold out and also pretty expensive, too, so we are proud to present you these zip platform heels by Jessica Simpson which are just as fabulous and way more accessible than the actual Louboutins. Like the Loubies these sandals here also come in either black or white. Happy shopping!
