Find My Shoes: Christian Louboutin Balota lookalikes + wedding shoes
I recently received a request for help finding shoes similar to the Christian Louboutin Balota (the gorgeous shoe you see pictured above) as well as a few requests for wedding shoe ideas, so I figured today would be a good day for a nice little diversion into the land of fancy footwear. I don’t personally have an occasion that would call for wearing these kind of dressy shoes in the near future, but I have to admit I love looking at them anyway (eye candy!). So, whether you need some extra-special shoes for a wedding or another event, or if you just want to window shop like me, here are some pretty little things for your feet:
First we have some sparkly and/or glittery strappy sandals that have a similar look to the $1,095 Louboutin Balota, but are far less expensive:
Steve Madden Aillie glitter sandal in champagne for $79.95 at Steve Madden. Coupon code rmn15f takes 15% off and applies free shipping, making them $67.96 (expiration unknown).
Nine West Elaine in gold for $79 at Nine West. Shipping is also free for a limited time. Note that this shoe is currently on preorder and expected to ship by 5/24/11.
Zigi Soho Gala in beige for $79.95 at DSW. Members get free shipping on $35 with coupon code SHIPR through 8/15/11.
Michael Antonio Thandie in gold for $44.88 with free 2-day shipping from Endless.
Now, let’s talk bridal shoes. There are so many styles for brides to choose from and so many color options to consider (not just white these days), so today I’m going to hone in on one particular brand that has really caught my eye lately – Menbur.
I love so many of their latest shoes and they are tailor-made for gorgeous bridal style, but you certainly don’t have to be getting married to appreciate this brand. One standout is the Menbur Casanova (above), a total princess shoe with its sparkling, rhinestone-encrusted ankle wrap. You can find this style for $220 with free overnight shipping from Endless. Here are some more options from the same brand, each from Endless:
Menbur Ballesio in nude or black for $234 with free overnight shipping.
Menbur Ceylan in grey, black, stone or champagne for $190 with free overnight shipping.
Menbur Bicci in nude, blue, fuchsia or black for $145.90 with free overnight shipping.
Menbur Curran in fuchsia, red, stone or black for $147.90 with free overnight shipping.
Menbur Carmichael in midnight blue (something blue!), black, nude, turquoise and fuchsia for $164 with free overnight shipping.
Check out all of the Menbur styles at Endless for even more options. Note that prices and shipping information are subject to change at any time.
