The Highest Heel

Update: This post has been updated on March 20, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

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.

The Highest Heel Precious-101 Platform Sandals

I stumbled upon these Christian Louboutin look-a-likes by The Highest Heel a few days ago and thought they would be a great alternative to the real Louboutins. The upper finish is grosgrain canvas instead of black patent leather, but the cork heel and the shape of the platform pump look almost identical. The slingbacks come in 3 different colors: black as shown below, bubblegum-pink and white. They’re also on sale right now, so place your order before they run out of your size.

Nicole Richie looked absolutely fabulous when she was out and about in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago. Nicole was wearing a red double breasted coat from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, black skinny jeans & matching Louboutins with white trimmed Chanel sunglasses, a slouchy Rick Owens beanie and her much loved Balenciaga motorcycle bag.
