BLAHNIK’S VS LOUBOUTIN’S: ULTIMATE LUXURY SHOE BRANDS FACE-OFF!

I have often wondered who the better designer is when it comes to creating luxury shoes, and today, I will be narrowing that argument down to the two most influential shoe makers in the fashion industry today; Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin.

I have selected the best designs (in my opinion) off the internet to compare both designers.

MANOLO BLAHNIK

There is just something unique, stylish and sophisticated about Manolo Blahnik shoes (and this isn’t because I loved watching Carrie Bradshaw buy them in Sex and the City).

I really admire the originality and thought put into creating these shoes and with comfort an essential part of the design, it works for regular women who want to look stylish yet comfortable.

The only down-side to this shoe line is that some of the designs come off looking somewhat clownish like what to be worn at a circus or fair or something of that sort.

Here are some of the best looks from Blahnik:

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN 

Christian Louboutin shoes have been greatly popularized by celebrities in Hollywood with notable names such as Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Nicole Kidman etc been seen wearing some of his designs. Louboutin shoes (trademarked red sole shoes) is coveted by everyone from  nurses to  housewifes wanting  at least a pair (the hype is about something, right?!).

I particularly love the edgy-ness and craftsmanship in creating these shoes which feature spiked and stiletto finishing in some cases.

For me, Louboutin shoes aren’t the most artistic or original shoes as I feel like a lot of designs are repeated in new collections.

Here are some of the best looks from Louboutin:

So which is your pick? Blahnik’s or Louboutin’s?

P.S. Assuming money is not an issue, I suggest you rock both designers (Lol.)

Till next time,

stay organically beautiful.

  1. Personally I prefer Manolos over a pair of Loubs. Mr. Blahnik has been on the forefront of women’s footwear design since the 1970s and it was only 20some years later that Christian Louboutin company started becoming popular and selling shoes.
    The two designers couldn’t be more different as well, Manolos never have a platform where as Louboutins have some of the most obnoxious (in my opinion). Louboutin draws from his experience assisting entertainers at a Parisian cabaret where Manolo Blahnik works from his Spanish flare. Sure some of his designs may seem “clownish” but if you put a pair on your feet you realise its true hand crafted beauty and elegance.
    Both design beautiful shoes and I respect each designer but in my personal opinion and catering to my style, I’d have to go with Manolo Blahnik.
