Manolo Blahnik vs. Christian Louboutin

Two famous names in the fashion industry, these high-end women’s shoemakers are known for their raw talent and attractive eye for creativity.

Manolo Blahnik

Stiletto master Manolo Blahnik is currently one of the greatest designers in women’s footwear.

His self-named shoes are sold in stores for costs of up to $ 2500. Often sporting heels measuring 10 cm and adorned with pearls and ribbons, Blahniks were partly made famous by Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw who had an obsession with the high-end shoe brand.

“People got tired of buying mass-produced, unoriginal designs,” shoe guru Manolo Blahnik says. “They want special, unique, excellent quality pieces that will last for years. If the item is exceptional, then people do not mind paying more. We always had customers who wanted special, unique pieces.”

“Comfort is paramount,” to his designs, he says, although he hates platforms, which he calls “furniture shoes.”

Christian Louboutin

The master of the 5+ inch heels incorporated into his designs glossy red soles, which became his trademark.

“In 1992 I incorporated the red sole into the design of my shoes. This happened by accident as I felt that the shoes lacked energy so I applied red nail polish to the sole of a shoe. This was such a success that it became a permanent fixture.”

Since the launch of his eponymous label in 1991, Louboutin’s professed goal is to “make a woman look sexy, beautiful, to make her legs look as long as [he] can.”

From razor-sharp stilettos or lace-up boots, Christian Louboutin pumps are a favorite of women around the world, from celebrities to soccer moms.

The Manolo Blahnik ultra-luxury shoes, with their extravagant floral designs and delicate ribbons are comfortable despite the high heel. For decades they have been a must for celebrities on the red carpet.

On the other hand, Christian Louboutin creations are characterized by a sophisticated design. The French designer has even created a pair of famous hyper-expensive shoes with gold heels. Besides the red soles, sky-scraper heels and flashy colors are his signature mark.
