Real vs. Steal – Christian Louboutin Banana Platform Pumps

by Irina on January 8, 2011

Update: This post has been updated on January 08, 2011. Scroll down to see the new add.

Finally! I officially have found the perfect nude pump! Are you surprised it is by the man of our shoe dreams, Monsieur Christian Louboutin? I am not. The strange thing is that I’ve been aware of the Banana pumps for quite some time now, but it wasn’t until today before I realized they are the perfect shape. And don’t get me started on the delicious patent nude color. You know you’ve found your perfect shoe when there isn’t one single thing you’d want to change about them… Wait! Oops, sorry, actually there are TWO things I’d change about these darlings here: a) the availability (they’re sold out) and b) the price ($800 isn’t exactly my kind of shoe shopping budget).

ALDO “Withey” Peep-toe Pumps

If Louboutins are out of your price range as well, opt for these equally amazing ALDO pumps instead. You might recognize these from our recent Nude Shoes Under $100 post. The only difference is the hidden platform; otheriwse it’s all there: the delicious nude patent leather, the perfectly shaped arch, the sky-high stiletto heel… and they’re only $80, not $800. Also available in black patent.

Liliana “Cord” Platform Pumps

In case you don’t feel like spending $80 on shoes right now, but still crave a new pair of heels, consider these gorgeous nude pumps by Liliana. They look a lot like the ALDO version, just a tad darker, and again have a hidden platform. I absolutely love these – especially the killer price of $20.60! New shoes for $20, how great is that? You better be quick to order because these will go fast!
