The pigalle, pigalle follies and so kate are some of Christian Louboutin's most popular styles. And, these classic pointed-toe pumps all look very similar. Here's what makes them different.
There are 2 primary differences between these shoes. First, the heel on the original pigalle is not as skinny as the follies or so kate. For most, this makes the pigalle more comfortable than the other 2 styles.
The thinner heel of the follies and so kate gives an extremely sexy stiletto look. But, this dainty yet edgy heel also means faster wear to the heel tap and heel.
The other big difference between the shoes is so kate's longer toe box. Some people find the longer toe box to be slightly more comfortable.
Because of these 2 differences, people usually find either the pigalle or so kate to be the most comfortable of the three. But, honestly, once the heels reach 120 mm or higher, none of these heels are "comfortable." These shoes are famous for how gorgeous they make legs and feet look, not how comfy they are.
For Christian Louboutin enthusiasts who are sticklers for detail, the pigalle follies have become a favorite with its small modern toe box and dangerously sexy pin-thin stiletto heel.
So, let's take a look at these stunning shoes in action. Can you tell the difference from afar?
Holy cow! These shoes are sexy! Observed with the entire outfit, the differences between the 3 shoes become much less apparent.
The heel thickness can be best observed from the back. That pop of glossy red is such a sexy fashion statement.
