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!

1. Amuze

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 :))

christian-louboutin-shoes-on-sale-amuze

2. Ebay

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.

3. Bluefly

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.

christian-louboutin-discount-bluefly

4. Gilt 

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.

christian-louboutin-shoes-on-sale

5. Matches Fashion

This sale section from Matches is new and welcomed. For every shoe designer really including Louboutin, this is a fashion trouve featuring 40-50% off, happy hunting!

louboutin-sale-2016

6. The Outnet

Discount sister to Net-A-Porter, some of the hottest shoes you missed at retail will pop up on The Outnet. Remember when they did the $1 sale forever ago? Again, these styles sell fast so be fast.

7. The Real Real

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.

8. Bag Borrow or Steal

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’.

pre-owned-christian-louboutin-shoes

9. Tradesy

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.

sell-christian-louboutin-shoes

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.

gianvito-rossi-fall-2016-shoes

We’re currently receiving some form of disciplinary action. It involves complete submission to a squad of ready-for-fashion-battle shoes –and you’ll be answering the call of duty soon too, once you get your eyes on them. Together, let’s salute the Gianvito Rossi Fall/Winter 2016 collection –our new shoe heroes.

Rossi’s latest line of footwear is an homage to French and British military uniforms (along with its signature Italian craftsmanship, of course). Adorned with rich hues and regal embellishments, ankle boots and sandals are strikingly commanding –but with a feminine flair that screams elegance –perfect for the lady bosses and the style savants who are ready to conquer the world this fall.

gianvito-rossi-august-sandals

August regal velvet ankle-cuff sandal; available at Barneys and Neiman Marcus.

The collection is sharp and striking –reminiscent of the richly decorated uniforms of the Navy. The Augusta is a velvet gem. Blue, gold and garnet embroideries decorate the sexy stiletto sandal, while the midnight blue Miral bootie brims with fit-for-royalty details such as shiny gold buttons and satin red piping.

gianvito-rossi-miral-velvet-bootie

Miral velvet peep-toe with contrast trim; available at Barneys, MyTheresa and FarFetch.

The sensual shape of the slip-on loafer might just make you give your classic black pumps a long break. The Moret features a high vamp d’Orsay with naked sides, and a thin 105 mm stiletto heel. Your new power shoe, perhaps?

gianvito-rossi-moret-velvet-pump

Moret d’Orsay velvet pump with high-rise front; available at MyTheresa and Lane Crawford.

The Vendome Bootie boasts of a cage design that captures the frogging detail of military jackets. It consists of embroidered loops of black suede with gold stitching, creating a fierce yet ultra-feminine finish.

gianvito-rossi-vendome

Vendome lattice cage sandal in black suede and gold embroidery; available at Barneys and Montaigne Market.

Mink and lamb shearlings also add a fun and flirty touch to the collection. The Moritz is an eye-popping emerald suede bootie with a fur-covered front and a lace-up detail to the ankle –a gorgeous accent no doubt, to an LBD or a white tee and jeans combo.

gianvito-rossi-moritz-fur-boot

Moritz suede & fur boot with wrap-around laces; available at Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue and MyTheresa.

Gianvito Rossi’s Fall ’16 collection is an army of bold and powerful footwear that celebrate femininity and relaxed elegance. The only war we now have to fight is: How can we get our hands on ALL these shoes, stat?!

Shop Gianvito Rossi’s latest collection at Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Mytheresa and Gianvito Rossi.

About the author: Romina Tobias is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. She thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more). 

Sophia-Webster-Fall-2016-Kendra-Bootie

Sophia Webster Kendra bootie | 4.5″ /110mm heel | available in blue leather at Net-A-Porter & Farfetch and in black leather at Forward by Elyse Walker & Neiman Marcus for $750.00

We are loving these new Sophia Webster Fall 2016 booties! Perfect for enhancing your simple-chic ensembles, Kendra is cut from blue & black suede with leather intricately designed to resemble a vintage brocade pattern. Our favorite part is the chunky 110mm heel that is encrusted with colorful crystals and resin beads. The zipper is located on the side for an easy slip on. Pair these heels with black  skinny jeans, a halter tank and cropped leather jacket.

Chloe-Harper-Fall-2016-Leather-Lace-Up-Boot

Chloé Harper ankle boot | 3″ / 75mm heel | available at Barneys, Matches, Farfetch and Browns Fashion for $1125.00

The dark yet sassy Gothic Glam trend is coming back this Fall season. On the runways we are seeing lacquered sky-high chunky platforms, chokers, leather jackets paired with fishnets and negligee dresses/skirts. Harper gives us a punk-gothic vibe with smooth black leather, a lace-up ribbon ankle tie, inner side zipper and stacked block heel. If you’re feeling a sassy-yet-gloomy kind of way pair these boots with a signature leather jacket, fishnet tights and velvet choker.

We hope that everyone is having a warm, sunny summer with their family and friends! As Fall approaches, now is the time to grab some go-to heels that will last you through the winter. Boots, booties and peep-toe pumps are our favorites from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale.
