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.
Since we started this blog (6 years ago!) we continue to enjoy curating and searching through the masses to bring you the best, the standouts.
Here we have it, our must-have shoes right now (good to bookmark too for the fast-approaching end-of-season sales!):
Jimmy ChooTrick strappy buckle sandals; available at FarFetch.
Gucci Mary Jane black patent leather and snakeskin bow embellished pumps; available at Net-A-Porter.
Gianvito RossiRegalia embroidered red satin strappy sandals; available at Net-A-Porter.
Aquazzura black suede Wild Thing fringed lace-up pumps; available at Net-A-Porter.
Gianvito Rossi red silk fringed satin ankle cuff sandals; available at Net-A-Porter.

These Nasiba sandals are sophisticated and chic, a perfect accessory for date night! Crafted from cashmere suede, these sandals have knotted straps with layered side panels. Nasiba also has a exposed back zip and covered 100mm stiletto heel. We’re thinking a scarlet red or a classic LBD will compliment these heels.
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.
Taylor Swift wore Giuseppe ZanottiLavinia booties to the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards. These heels feature patent black leather, small peep-toe, side zipper, 38mm platform and 140mm chunky block heel. Lavinia is available in black patent leather at Neiman Marcus and in pink patent leather at 6pm.
Fashion month may have officially wrapped up, but we still aren’t ready to double-air-kiss goodbye the shoes we spied on the Paris catwalks. So grab a box of macarons and enjoy our little runway recap of the most stylish shoes that dazzled in the City of Light.
Oliver Rouesting successfully showed how the female lines and curves can be celebrated even while completely covered up. Legs gained extra mileage with stretch suede boots that seemingly went on forever. The stilettos boots paired with opaque tights highlighted the sexy female form, without the skin doing a peek-a-boo act.
Matching the shiny brocade jackets, lacy tops and elegant evening gowns were chic and cool lace-up ankle booties with sneaker-like gold lace holes, pumps with chunky criss-cross straps and flat boots with button and snap details at the back shaft.
It was a great display of modern aesthetics on the Dior runway. Lace-up, pointed-toe boots got multiple treatments –croc and snakeskin with cut-out details make for awesome work-to-play shoes. Their ankle heel counterparts are just as fab with its laces and side strap combo. The color and print blocking action, mixing reptile prints with neutrals, make these stunning shoes a staple in your mixing and matching pursuits.
For club kids who always just want to have fun. Zebra-striped pixie booties were adorned with studs and the buckled flats were worn with matching socks for an overall boot effect that screams, 80s.
Your oversized ski jacket can now either be paired with go-go boots in your neutral color of choice, or satin pumps encrusted with sparkly accoutrements. And if you want your legs to be entirely covered in print, there are thigh-high boots for you with matching coats.
Ricardo Tisci has basically turned boots into pieces of clothing. The slender and sleek design either stopped at the knee or higher until it covered the leg like a pair of bottoms. Some sported nude toneswhile others in an edgier python print, accented with leather uppers flashing orange or gold hues. Metal heels also had a unique conical shape with graphic patterned in-lays.
It was the perfect mix of charm and chic. Low-block heels with a pointed toe in gray and white, make for the perfect professional shoe you can take to playtime as well. Leather pumps even got some leather trimmings and can definitely add a flirty and feminine touch to a power suit.
Classic and demure, feminine and fancy –fitting for the Parisian high society. Black pumps got extra strappy with its ladder-style, gladiator form. Black pointy flats were cutesy with its bow detail at the cap –we say “Oui” to its subtle and charming elegance.
An equestrian theme would of course call for bucket hats with chinstraps and of course, riding boots. These tall riding boots with a cut-out detail at the ankle sported a wingtip brogue and dainty silver eyelets. In magenta, black, denim and gold, the boots were striking contrasts to the tweed jacket and coats draped with pearls.
The shoes perfectly matched the not-so basic, neutral color palette. A play on the classics –we are treated to heeled Mary Janes and strappy slingback sandals bedazzled with tiny crystals with matching ribbed socks. Then of course, the signature Rockstud ballet flats were also updated with the same iconic strap.
The Louis Vuitton woman for fall is a heroine with style and attitude, plus a street cred to match. Nicolas Ghesquière presented lace-front combat boots in high-shine black or blue, or infused with the sporty details of kicks (now you get to know what it feels like to wear rubber shoes with heels).
The concept of “less is more” did not exist on the Miu Miu runway. Suede boots and satin pumps were super fierce with their pin-thin heels. Even the back of the pumps were accented with bows on the back. Fur slides a.k.a. our dream bedroom slippers got a dose of sparkle, with its sprinkling of crystals and pearls. A standout piece and something worthy to be displayed inside a glass case would be the brocade pumps with a one-of-a-kind structural embellishment on the back.
About the author: zenzhu is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. He 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).
Our tour of the fashion capitals of the world continues. Next stop? Milan! Let’s take a closer look at our favorite Italian exports –nope, not the best-tasting pizza or the creamiest gelato there is –but shoes, of course! Whet your sartorial appetite with these shoes that are just, bellisima.
Dolce & Gabbana
Disney Princess wannabee? Dolce & Gabanna’s whimsical heels will make your fairy tale dreams come true. Metallic t-strap pumps were embellished with glitter, multicolored flowers and furry pompoms. PVC pumps were reminiscent of Cinderella’s glass slippers –you’d never want to leave a shoe behind, that’s for sure –midnight curfew or not.
Furry footwear also tickled the Ferragamo runway. Fur trim adorned the ankle strap on an otherwise classic, muted satin sandal. Toe caps of block-heeled pumps also got the furry treatment, giving the chic footwear the cozy touch of bathroom slippers. Zigzag-patterned lizard skin and suede booties and knee-highs were also playful and edgy additions to the flirty footwear collection.
Stilettos stole the show with its super ornate embellishments –tassels, cord lacing, beadwork, badges, ruffles, belts, straps and buckles were the perfect details to match the military mood of the edgy Victorian coats and Sargent jackets.
The Prada woman for fall is a traveller who treks, hikes and explores in style. Her nomadic footwear consists of lace-ups with wedge heels, multicolored laces and nautical detailing. Her Prada pilgrimage will continue with glossy patents and color-blocked leathers, adorned with golden buckles.
Now you can wear a pair of snakeskin platform boots for almost everyday of the week. The go-go boots came in a plethora of colors –black, gold, purple, blue and green –all snag-worthy for the glam-rock chicks out there.
Cropped and over-the-knee boots weren’t shy of details –the leg covering footwear were heavily dressed up in ruffled leather, scaling, garters and tapered heels. These beauties had an eye-catching color palette too, from cotton candy hues to super bold shades that would light up the streets in the fall.
With Madonna mash-ups playing the background, you can definitely expect a show that is equal parts sexy, rebellious and edgy. Stomp-worthy combat boots were bedecked with studs and colorblocked with blue or green covering. Cowboy boots were studded and buckled –super sexy when paired with short skirts. Then there’s that pair of metallic gladiator boots that are extremely feminine, fierce and totally hot!
Alessandro Michele described his dreamy collection as an ode to, as he said, “some of my passions” –the Seventies, The Renaissance and Street Style were celebrated through platform wedges paired with lustrous hosiery. Horse-bit loafers got a fun makeover and were spruced up with a pointed toe and block heels, while your classic round-toe Mary Janes turned into entrancing accessories with its optical illusion print.
It was a kitten heel parade. Leather ankle booties, got the modest-heel treatment, while pointy pumps already came with zipped up socks for a cosy touch. Ankle strap pumps got a little bit more height and color too. Our favorite? The fluorescent yellow capped stilettos with coral ankle straps.
Consuelo Castiglioni obviously likes to experiment with conceptual forms. Pointy pumps in high-shine neutrals featured wooden wedges with gold trimming –the shoes were like wearable pieces of furniture. Tall boots were also given added lift by wooden orbs, while other pumps were elegantly accented with curved, swirly-shaped wooden heels.

We love all of the fun n’ flirty designs from Rupert Sanderson’s latest Spring ’16 collection but especially these anime-inspired Waverly Mary Jane heels. They feature sheer nude mesh paneling embroidered with whimsical two-tone blue swirly designs, contrasting black trim, arctic blue leather covered stiletto heel, mirrored silver leather toe and thin black leather halter strap. It’s stocked only in whole sizes.
Kate Hudson wore CasadeiToo Blade pumps to “Kung Fu Panda 3” London premiere. These heels feature nude patent leather (as seen here), a small peep-toe, lacquered 109mm Blade steel heel and 35mm platform. You can shop current styles online at Shoescribe, Farfetch and Casadei.
