Monsieur Christian Louboutin transports us back into the 70’s with his groovy “Super Dombasle” cork platforms. Well, describing these just as platforms might be a slight understatement. SUPER MEGA BADASS PLATFORMS would be more fitting, I guess. I don’t know whether I would be daring enough to rock these 6 inchers, but I sure love the bright turquoise suede on these and cork shoes are ideal spring/summer shoes.

C Label Denda-1A Platforms

Update (04/18/2012): Yay, just came across another Louboutin look-a-like. These faux-cork/faux-leather platforms by C Label cost a very wallet-friendly $39.95 and come in 4 colors: turquoise, fuchsia, black and brown.

Steve Madden “GURLLEE” Cork Platforms

To no one’s surprise Steve Madden has copied Louboutin’s mega platforms, but tamed them a little by reducing the platform by 1.25 inches which I actually prefer because it makes them so much more wearable. If you’re not into bright colors, these beauties also come in blue or black floral print.
