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.

    You can’t stray from the originals. The less expensive shoes are rather cheap looking.

    Hi, I was just wondering if you ended up purchasing the Devious pumps. I saw them online (they’re less than $50 on Amazon) but have not been able to find many reviews. I was wondering anout the sizing and comfort, as well as appearance and quality. Obviously I’m not expecting designer quality at this price point, but a relatively comfortable pair that will last a season or two would be nice.

    Thanks in advance for any info!
