Real vs. Steal – Christian Louboutin So Kate Pointed-Toe Stiletto Pumps

Dear “Pigalle“, I know you won’t like this, but there’s a new queen in town, her name is “So Kate” aka shoe perfection and she is probably Louboutin‘s hottest and most coveted style at the moment. One look at her and you will instantly understand why. The shiny black leather, the thinning stiletto heel, the perfectly shaped arch – everything about this shoe is just perfect! Plus, while the price of $675 sure isn’t exactly a bargain, compared to what other Louboutin styles are usually retailing for, these here are on the rather budget-friendlier side of the designer shoe price range. Which is also probably the reason why “So Kate” is constantly on the verge of selling out at nearly every e-tailer. Anyway, this beauty of a high heel has definitely taken the #1 spot on my current shoe wish list and until I have saved up the neccessary $675 to bring them home, I’ll settle for a less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Guoar Pointed-Toe Stiletto Pumps

Update (01/08/2017): Came across these Louboutin look-alikes by Guoar. These seem to be of the “Made in China”-kind of designer dupes, so you better don’t expect top noth quality here, but for $48 these might be a good So Kate alternative (customer reviews average a 4 star rating with plenty of self-submitted buyer’s photos, so you can make an informed buyer’s decision). What I really, really liked about these Loubie dupes though is the variety of colors these come in: 31 (either in faux patent, leather or suede). Love!

Kaitlyn Pan Pointed-Toe Stiletto High Heel Pumps

Update (07/13/2016): There’s also a fabulous So Kate dupe available by Kaitlyn Pan for $99 and which also comes in nude patent. The design is spot-on, it’s made of genuine leather and if you read the customer reviews for the brand’s other designer inspired shoes, you’ll know you’ve found yourself a good designer dupe with these Louboutin-like beauties. The only drawback (if you consider it to be one) is that the sole is pink instead of Louboutin’s signature red. But everything else looks exactly like Louboutin’s So Kate.

Steve Madden “PROTO” Pointy-Toe Pumps

Et voilà, check out “PROTO” by Steve Madden! Yes, I know it’s not a total spot-on dupe and that it’s not as delicate and immaculately curved as the real deal Louboutins, but “PROTO” is probably still the best shot you’ve got at “So Kate” on a budget. At least for now. $52.47 (sale price!) and you’re wearing Louboutin for less, girl! Available in various lovely colors and uppers: black, blush, pink, white, red, yellow and natural snake. Now get your Loubie dupe before it’s too late!
