Blahnik designed another twist on the must-have “Chaos” two-strap sandal for Spring ’17. We love this contemporary ankle-strap featuring a thick PVC toe strap and leather cord wrap-around ankle straps balanced out with Manolo’s classic slim stiletto, nude leather insole and silver aglets. Half sizes are available.
This Spring 2017 Ferme Rouge pump was inspired by feminine curves with it’s high-rise heel and sculpted cutout vamp. We love the striking rougissime suede upper combined with spring’s go-to neutral, a timeless leopard-print covered stiletto. It’s finished with a contrasting black leather front tie at the ankle, white patent leather covered sides and piped metallic gold leather trim. For an even more classic option, it’s also sold in black leather. Half sizes are available.

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.
Christian LouboutinKaleikita 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.

Kate Hudson wore Gianvito RossiBiba nude pumps to the 20th Annual Hollywood Film Awards. These classic shoes feature nude patent leather, sleek pointed-toe and 115mm stiletto heel. They’re available online at FarFetch.
There are a few brands we turn to for those wear every day, all day shoes and we love these styles on sale at Coach right now. Our favorite shoes featured below are designed in beautiful suede and leather with just the right amount of height – the perfect match of wearable and walkable. We’ve also listed the ones on sale (currently 40% off right now).
Lena suede lace-up bootie in black and burgundy; available (on sale!) at Coach.
Westyn suede fringe boots with a stacked wood heel in black & saddle brown; available at Coach.
Shae Tea Rose cut-out leather pump with long wrap-around laces in black leather and racing green available (on sale!) at Coach.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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’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?!
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).
For Dean and Dan these prim n’ proper show-stompers were the perfect finishing touches for their “samurai x Victorian x combat Fall 2016 collection“. They feature layers upon layers of fine floral lace, tassel fringe trim, black silk, high embellished backing, lace printed insole and double ankle strap. Plus, burrowed in the nest of lace there’s a triple pearl drop charm. Half sizes are available.
