My Thoughts

These shoes are the "So Kate" by iconic shoe designer Christian Louboutin. They are deemed as the Pigalle version 2, if the Pigalle wasn't sexy and iconic enough, the So Kate takes it to another level. With a thinner heel and stepper arch, the improvements from the pigalle are slight but amazing. These shoes were so popular they sold out online on nearly every stock listing website within 48 hours of release!. Thats one popular pair of high heels. Not to mention the pre-order sales were through the roof months in advance. The most popular pair of Christian Louboutin shoes since the Pigalle was first released. This is mainly due to Christian Louboutin's growing and star studded recognition in social media, popular amongst celebrities and fashion icons. The So Kates were only made in a 120mm heel (5 inches) unlike the pigalle which can feature in 120mm, 100mm and 85mm. Even superstar fashion model Cara Delevingne who self proclaims that she hates wearing high heels, was spotted in a pair of So Kate's outside of the runway! Getting your hands on these shoes in black patent leather is near on impossible, with a retail instore price of £425 released in winter 2013, the odd ones floating online are surpassed that figure and reaching close to £600 (brand new). With Christian Louboutin's popularity increasing, the value of all his product are sure to continue rising. The Pigalle's have increased in price from £375 to £425, and the Bianca's have increased from £495 to £545 in recent times.
Keep an eye out for these shoes and grab them in your size if you ever get the chance.
