Louboutin Inspired: Part 3

Those fabulous Christian Louboutin shoes that were designed for Roland Mouret's recent RM fashion show have been knocked off by Steve Madden. Compare and contrast...

Christian Louboutin Emily Shoe Boot $925

Steve Madden Chap $149.95

Is imitation the greatest form of flattery? Or is it the best way to profit off of someone else's talent? I can't say for sure. I think we all know that when you purchase a knock-off of a designer shoe, you may have something that looks like the real thing but won't be made with the quality of the materials and the craftsmanship of the original. But the reality is, how many of us can afford a $925 Christian Louboutin shoe? And Louboutin has so taken over the shoe world recently that it seems like everyone is knocking him off. Those stunning heels you're wearing right now could be a Louboutin knock-off and you don't even know it. I will leave it up to you to decide based on your budget and fashion needs what you will buy.
