Christian Louboutin may be the designer of the moment, but I can't help thinking buying a pair of wedges for $710 from his current collection is a bit of a waste when you can't even flash that 'look, I wear overpriced shoes' red sole at people. Especially when the high street is bringing out similar (and more wearable) alternatives for as little as £10. Yes, ten pounds! The Matalan offering (right, also in grey) may be missing the stacked platform, but I think that adds to the appeal and makes the shoes much more flattering for the average shoe fiend. If you want them I suggest you act fast, my local only had one pair left this weekend.
