Real vs. Steal – Christian Louboutin Rollerball Spiked Loafers

by Irina on August 12, 2012

Update: This post has been updated on August 12, 2012. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Leave it to Christian Louboutin to make loafers look at least somewhat attractive to me. I’m not saying I love these nor would I spend almost a grand on them, but the silver spikes do make these less old man looking and give it a Michael Jackson coolness instead. As you can see below this shoe knows no age and gender; it gets worn by rebellious celebrity teens, newly-wed brides and egocentric dudes likewise.

Charles Albert New 1551 Studded Loafers

Shortly after publishing this post I came across these white studded loafers by Charles Albert. Clearly an ode to Monsieur Louboutin, these will give you the same look for a mere 30 bucks. Unfortunately only limited sizes are left.

  • I love these! Can’t afford but hopefully another knock-off will surface. 🙂

  • t

    i really need these beautiful babies .. i cant afford the loub’s but im definitely going to order the matiko’s

  • These babies are only worthy to be worn if they are from Louboutin!

    If I’m not mistaken, these are the famous ones that TSA wouldn’t allow as carry on (or was it on feet). And obviously they aren’t cheap so it caused a huge drama. Just fyi in case you wanted to wear it to the airport.
