Bloomsbury is a striking sandal featuring digital floral printed silk satin from the Fall 2016 collection with matching embroidered trim, button snap straps, dark blue silk covered heel and side zip closure. Webster gave us a insider’s look at the making of this design and we’ve also spotted a custom gladiator style worn by celebrity Serayah McNeill.

Half sizes are available and we suggest ordering 1/2 size up as this brand tends to run small.

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 :))

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.

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.

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!

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.

Christian Louboutin Kaleikita spiked sandals | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at Bergdorf Goodman.

We always look forward to Christian Louboutin’s spring collections – especially in a market stocked with enough staple pumps. They’re pure eye candy, kooky and continuously fun.

These Kaleikita sandals are no exception. They come with all the bells and whistles featuring heavy embellishment like baubles, spikes and studs. The color combo also hits the mark and we love varying geometric cut straps. Louboutin also added a magenta textured leather covered heel and crackled bronze leather laces.

We equally love the black suede & leather version (pictured below) combining gold & silver hardware.

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.

They feature black suede zig-zag straps, PVC side panels, black leather covered platform & heel plus long wrap-around suede laces.

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.
