Rockport

Update: This post has been updated on December 18, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

We’ve featured quite a number of Christian Louboutin shoes here on InTheirCloset and I think that’s because, other than being extremely popular with our readers, they are also what I would classify as “classic”. Louboutin pumps range from demure to over the top but almost all of them feel timeless. CL’s “Claudia” ankle-strap sandals are no exception. They are simply a new take on a tried and true shoe. Look how beloved these are by hollywood starlets and Playboy bunnies alike. You’d probably have to be either or both to swing that price tag though.

Ivanka Trump “Bulbli” Ankle Strap Sandals

Update (12/14/2010): Well, well. Seems like Ivanka Trump can add shoe designer to her resume now?! Or maybe not because her “Bulbli” sandals look like spot-on clones of Louboutin’s Claudias though I must admit they have the much nicer price tag. Available in black, red or graphite patent.

Aldo “Brodigan” Ankle Strap Sandals

Thank you, Aldo, for bringing us a shoe both lovely and affordable. No, my friends, you will not be able to show off that red sole, but if it’s class you’re looking for, look no further. Aldo’s “Brodigan” pump is the versatile, cocktail pump you’ve been looking for minus the hefty price tag. *Ding Ding*. We have a winner! Also available in a great nude color.
