    They look great, but damn if my hurt don’t hurt like crazy after wearing them. I’ll stick with my Manolos.

  • FashionableLena

    I have always wanted a classic pair of pumps, but the toe box is too small. I am at an age now where in don’t wear uncomfortable shoes no matter how gorgeous they are. It’s just not worth it.

  • Mila Mihailovic

    I do not own a pair because every model I tried was super uncomfortable :(

  • Sparky

    Never. I won’t even try them on. Trash hooker shoes (sorry I know that’s a bit harsh but I can’t stand them).

    • anon

      Same. Even the more exotic and unique shoes are so short lasting style wise its not worth it.

    • BabyDietrich

      That’s what turns me off about this brand. It’s practically part of a hooker uniform around here.

  • Y Ajayi

    I have one pair and I haven’t felt the need to get another. I think they were a waste of money and a bit passé now. Gimme Jimmy choo any day.

  • Iréne Shûkriya-Dutta Scharief

    I only have one reason not to get them, they’re not comfortable. I prefer Jimmy Choo or Manolo Blahnik. Actually, Jessica Simpson and Franco Sarto are more comfortable.

    • anon

      Agreed. Franco Sarto shoes look and feel amazing simultaneously! Which for some reason is too hard to ask for with Louboutin.

    • I love Jessica Simpson shoes. My favorite pair are the light tan, brown striker heel with zipper. I ADORE Franco Sarto bags and did wonder about the shoes. I”ll try them, now!

    Ok, yes, many of the Louboiton styles are gaudy and a little street walkerish. Every now and then I come across a pair that is so very wearable and when that happens they are so worth the money. I have a couple pair of pointy toe flats, a pair of suede wedge booties, and a sling back pair of pumps with about a 3″ heel. If you ask me this is Louboutin at its best. I agree that some of the 4″ plus pumps are beautiful but let’s get real, no reasonable amount of walking can be done in them so they are of no use to me. The garish platforms that are 6″ plus, well, I can completely do without them!

  • Jerri R

    Then you go straight to the Louboutins threads on purseforum and see just how many people are saying that they can’t walk in them.

  • kemilia

    While some of the styles are like beautiful works of art, I treasure my little wide duck feet too much to force them into uncomfortable shoes, which is what these seem to be. Even these pics make my arches cringe.

  • SerenLuv

    I have 2 pairs of Louboutins that I do not wear because my heels slip out of the shoes. They are gorgeous but I have no time to embarras myself by walking out of the shoes. Such a disappointment.

    • Lily

      Same here, my heels are too narrow.

      • Jennifer

        The shoes are beautiful. I own five pair and can only walk in 3 of them because my heels slip out the back while walking:(

  • TexasST

    They are really works of art and I have 2 pairs that I have never worn because I hate toe cleavage!!! I don’t mind it so much on someone else, but for some reason every time I got to put them on all I see is toe cleavage, argh!!!

  • Camilla Valle

    I love Louboutin. I saw this really exclusive pair on DAYS the new luxury fashion app. Have you ladies seen it? https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1097827734

  • Holly Stanton

    I think they are boring now. Every “high fashion” look is the same. Where is the originality?

  • Jewish Chick

    So happy you did a feature on CL’s! If you check out my IG (@jewish_chick), you can see my collection is made up entirely of Pigalle’s, both 100 and 120mm. I can wear them for hours and find them fairly comfortable (I do size up to a 41 though in them and I normally wear a 39.5 or a 40 in other brands)! I had a pair of So Kate’s and could not even take a few steps in them and ended up selling them!

    • Katherine Callaghan

      You have an AH-MAZING collection!

      • Jewish Chick

        thanks so much! xx

      • Jewish Chick

        aw thank you!!!

      • Jewish Chick

        thanks so much! xx

    I just can’t see an article of apparel that can so easily wear Itself out of shape as a good investment. Also, when shoe silhouettes change, they change EMPHATICALLY.

  • Stephanie Murphy

    I don’t mind the discomfort of Louboutins (from time to time), but what really kills me is how quickly the red from the soles is destroyed. I tend to take good care of my nicer items, and I hate that the one thing that makes these shoes so special gets scratched off on the first wear.

  • TNY

    As someone that has several pairs of Louboutins, I find that if you buy the sky high ones, your feet will hurt. It’s best to purchase the 120 or 80 MM ones. Those may not come in all the crazy styles, but you will be able to walk in them. I also own, Chanel, Jimmy Choos, Stuart Weitzman, but a classic pump in Louboutin goes a long way.

  • SPA

    I have 2 pairs of flat Louboutins and they are comfortable and very chic. I can’t wear heels, wish I could !!

  • kroseg

    Why in the hell would anyone pay nearly $6000 for a pair of shoes that, by reading the comments, hurt your feet anyways? I’ve got a pair of pumps from Payless that make me look/feel sexy, they’re attractive, and they cost $30. This article made me hate elitist rich people more than I already do…none of the reasons listed in this article are valid for making me want to buy a pair of shoes that cost anywhere from $400-6000 (according to an article in Forbes). What’s the big deal? Why are you wasting money on shoes that hurt your feet anyways? Donate to a charity, for God’s sake.
