OMG: These Christian Louboutins Sneakers (!) Cost 3 Times What His Heels Cost
June 10, 2011
Christian Louboutin ‘Louis’ Jeweled Sneaker, $2,395
Okay, so they DO have the signature red sole that also adorn Christian Louboutin‘s classic heels. And yes, they are almost entirely embellished. But something about a pair of Louboutin sneakers costing THREE TIMES what a pair of his pumps cost that just isn’t sitting well with me. Is there some sort of $1,600 add-on fee for irony?
And even though I hardly ever wear heels (#tallgirlproblems), I do hope that my first pair of Loubs will be a pair of classic pumps, and not shoes that remind me of a blinged-out version of my high school basketball kicks.
In honor of Mr. Louboutin’s lame excuse for athletic apparel, check out our favorite ridiculous designer sneakers, from Gucci to DSquared2, below. And don’t worry, they all cost roughly the same or less than a regular pair of Louboutin heels – what a bargain!
