I got an email from Heather, who needs help locating a pair of shoes she spotted while attending the So You Think You Can Dance live show in Omaha. It was a pair worn by Randi, seen here dancing in the show, one shoe on and one shoe off (click to see larger size):
Great pics, Heather! I didn’t get the scoop on why she had only one shoe on, but I imagine it probably fell off during the dance. Show must go on, right? Her shoes appear to be a python or snakeskin print with a black heel, super-high platform and red sole. Of course, the red sole usually indicates Christian Louboutin, but I don’t see anything currently on the market that looks exactly like this. Here are some Christian Louboutin python heels that are available:
Christian Louboutin Rolando for $1,195 at Barney’s
Christian Louboutin Python Feticha for $1,170 at Barney’s
Christian Louboutin Python Pump for $1,335 at Saks Fifth Avenue
If the shoes are Louboutin, I think they could be from a previous collection that’s now sold out. Like this pair I saw on Ebay with a black heel (the auction has now ended, but you can scroll down to see the listing):
Of course, a red sole does not always mean it’s Louboutin, so I also looked for this shoe under a wide range of other brands. I did not end up finding the exact shoe, but I did find several look-alike styles:
Guess by Marciano Barrie for $147.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless. In addition, another $25 is taken off at checkout (exp. unknown).
Here’s a brand known to use red soles and this particular one looks quite similar to the Louboutin Ebay pair pictured above. The Oh Deer! Rinna is $76.99 at ShoeSteal (get an extra 25% off with code FALL25 until 11/16/09) or $131.99 at Heels.com or $131 at Shoesale.com, but sizes are limited at each.
Penny Loves Kenny Grace for $79.95 at DSW. Members get free shipping on $35 with coupon code SNOWMAN until 1/4/10.
Steve Madden Graace for $99.95 at Steve Madden. Get free shipping with coupon code SMFREESHIP or spend $100 or more to get 15% off and free shipping with coupon code SMSAVE15 until 11/19/09.
The Miss Me Jocelyn 1 has the super-high platform, but unfortunately it’s only available in a size 9 at Amazon for $46.74 or Endless for $45.33, although you never know if it might be re-released. Another option from this brand is the Miss Me Joanne 4 at DSW for $29.95.
Update: Here’s a new arrival at Nordstrom with a similar look, the Via Spiga Mindy for $215.
Update 2: Love this option, the Pelle Moda Wren for $192 at Shopbop.com.
If anyone recognizes the exact pair Randi is wearing here, leave a comment and help fellow shoe sister Heather out!
