Yes, I promise – It’s actually possible. Looking for a deal? Or maybe you’re hunting for an amazing style you’re craving from several seasons ago? Look not further, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of retailers carrying Christian Louboutin shoes on sale!
You have to make an account to access the sales. Amuze feature’s discounted Christian Louboutin shoes all the time. You’ll be put in their daily email list and receive notices whenever the red soles are stocked (side note – they have awesome Valentino Rockstud sales too :))
Good ol’ eBay, the marketplace for anything and everything. Due to the selling of inauthentic shoes, I strongly urge you to look a the users reviews and selling history, closely look at the product photos, and filter to shop only from North America. It goes without saying but be street-smart – if the price is “too good to be true”…….it probably is. With that being said, I’ve seen fantastic Christian Louboutin shoe prices well below retail price.
Bluefly’s been around forever and I was little surprised when I looked at their latest selection for this post. They carry more recent styles but note that the discounts aren’t “heavy” – averaging around 20% off retail price.
Another classic, Gilt! Gilt’s sales aren’t as regular as some of the other membership type sites meaning you have to join the site and receive the email alerts to be notified of an upcoming Christian Louboutin sale. Another tip, shop fast! The Louboutin styles sell out in a flash.
This is an online consignment boutique featuring over 6,000 styles of Christian Louboutin shoes. They also promise that every item is 100% the real thing. Bonus! Use Code EXTRA20 for an extra 20% off.
Not just for bags anymore, the premiere designer borrowing site has expanded into other consignment areas (for buying) including designer shoes. I suggest following them on Facebook as they regularly hold sales including ‘extra 30% off deals’.
I haven’t personally used this site but it’s very popular and they current have 27,000 Christian Louboutin shoes to shop! It’s a great site to snag the classics including the original Pigalle pump or the staple So Kate.
Note that most department stores and luxury online retailers will have select styles on discount for end-of-season sales but this usually only happens twice a year (Nordstrom has an anniversary sale too). So look out for end -of-season sales at Net-A-Porter, Nordstorm, Neiman Marcus & Saks Fifth Avenue.
Also, I’ll be sending a sale guide for the upcoming holidays and Black Friday, so sign up!
Please feel free to message me with any questions you have.
There are more talented designers and high quality crafted shoes than ever before. Retailers are stocking as much as the can; exclusive designs, premiere collections, pre-orders….and as much as I love how accessible fashion has become, it’s also seems quite cluttered.

How HOT! We’re in love with these vampy Dani lace-up sandals by Jimmy Choo. Even a little reminiscent of the Christian Louboutin Nymphette sandals seen on Mary-Kate, no? They feature black suede zig-zag straps, PVC side panels, black leather covered platform & heel plus long wrap-around suede laces. You can also find them in 100mm option at Jimmy Choo and FarFetch – half sizes are available.
Standout this fall with these Isabel Marant’s Nola ankle boots. Nola is crafted in Italy from buttery black suede and smooth leather. Subtle drama is created with texture from the suede paneling to smooth leather. These boots are finished with Bohemian-inspired crossover straps and ankle fringed ties. Highlight the Nola boot with midi skirts and cropped pants. Half sizes are available.
For Fall 2016, Christian Louboutin draws inspiration from powerful stand-out themes such as Tudor, Glam, Bold Colors and Rich Embellishments.
We all know a Louboutin collection is never complete without a little shimmer and sparkle. Crystals, studs and spikes adorn many of the statement styles including the Goldocross, New Very Prive and Pigalle Follies.
There are also a couple new staple silhouettes including the Marlena Rock and Suzanna.
This collection offers a shoe for every woman. Our top three? The Barabara bootie, Folklo platform pump and Marlenalta t-strap.
