I was writing about how the Christian Louboutin So Kates were usurping the place of the Pigalles in the hearts of celebs everywhere just yesterday, but of course, here’s Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel in NYC, forcing me to question my (minimal) fashion authority with a tried-and-true pair of Christian Louboutin Pigalle Pumps. You can get a metallic, spiked version of these pumps for $1,295 at Barneys.
It can be hard to tell these shoes apart from the So Kates without the perfect angle, which these photos really don’t supply, but the straightness of the heel where it meets the shoe seems to indicate that these are in fact Pigalles. Honestly, I’ve looked back and forth at the two shoes so much that I’m a little dizzy, but I really do think they’re Pigalles. [Ed. Note - So do I.]
