It seems like the devil I might be wearing Prada sooner than I thought. I was not really planning on buying them, plus my size seemed nowhere to be found. But then after lurking through the closed doors of the Prada store at Avenida da Liberdade in Lisbon for two days – damn you Christmas – I walked in to find myself doubting not only between two colors, but also between two sizes. Nude or black, nude or black? For a moment there, I lost all common sense and wanted to pull the trigger on both – ok black, whereas I can still hear the voice of that little inside-devil whispering I should get the nude ones as well.

The shop-assistant was somehow on a mission to sell me a 37,5 – stating Prada sizing is incorrect and I should size down – which I just wanted to take off right after putting them on and so I took my actual size.

So, why not Louboutin? Because they hurt like nasty paper cuts and I think the kind of hidden golden emblem on the soles of the shoes I went for is way more sexy than the red sole story we learned ourselves to believe.

  1. I think the Prada ones are much more alluring and chic. I have seen the Louboutins way too often on the wrong people which ruins it for me. I know that sounds bad but it’s kinda how I started to feel about them

  2. Oh thank god, i thought i was the only one who’s not a big fan of the red sole.
    The Prada’s are so much more appealing i think!

  3. This is one of those moments I have to thank God for not living in Lisbon because I’m sure I would’ve lost my mind in those stores and gone bankrupt already.
    They’re equally beautiful!
    (I’m sure I’ll lost my mind anyway)

  4. Couldn’t agree more with everything Louboutin aha.
    These are absolutely gorgeous, such a classic!
    (I would definitely go for a pair of Prada as well if I could, or Manholo who knows.)

  5. Gorgeous, a lifetime keeper! For those of us who aren’t there yet, the Nine West Love Fury is a decent copy, right down to the little gold emblem on the bottom :)

  6. What a lovely pair of shoes and I agree on the res sole. I think it so tacky, tough Louboutins are nice shoes, the red sole doesn’t do them any favors.
    Can you please tell, what’s the name of these pumps? Thank you.

  7. I’m right there with you, darn you after holiday sales!! These are beautiful and definitely a classic. Great choice! P.S. I take it they’re more comfy than the Loubs?:) Happy New Year!
