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.
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 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.
