Despite the respect and admiration I have for the creativity of Monsieur Christian Louboutin; if I had to buy a pair of Louboutins with my current sad little shoe budget I’d choose a very classic style to ensure I’ll get maximum bang for my buck. I’ve always loved the shape of the “Bianca” – a high platform stiletto pump, so it’s very likely I’d go for this style because it looks like one of my personified shoe dreams.

Calvin Klein “Gracen” Slingback Pumps

UPDATE (01/19/2013): After a long time I came across these slingback pumps by Calvin Klein which double as great Christian Louboutin Bianca Sling alternatives. Also available in mint, blush and red.

bebe “Jacob” Slingback Pumps

As long as I still have to save up for the real deal, I might as well get something nice for the time in between. bebe.’s “Jacob” slingback pump looks like very much like Bianca’s little sister, but costs way less than her big sister. I love how Bebe put Loubie’s signature red sole on the outside of the heel. Looks good this way, too, huh? Available in black/red or navy/black patent.
