Pigalle and So Kate Comparisons

As the popularity of Christian Louboutin’s So Kate heels continues to grow, there’s been a lot of request for comparison p IWC-Saint-Exupery/gkuwhfvb. mannen christelijke louboutinix between the Pigalle 120 and So Kate (which so far only comes in heel height 120). So I finally got around to edit these pix. I’ve made a few observations of some differences that I noticed, please let me know if you ladies require more pictures. Hope this helps with your shopping!

For reference, all pictures below are shown with the old/pre-FW13 Pigalle 120 on the left and So Kate on the right. My Pigalle 120 sizing is 35 and So Kate is 35.5, but both fit me the same.

1. So Kate has longer overall length by 5-6mm.

2. So Kate’s heel is shorter by 2-3mm and is thinner with a slight curvature.

 3. Lateral side of So Kate is actually LOWER cut than the Pigalle 120.

PSK_side1

I have the 2 shoes’ lateral edges side by side, and you can see that the So Kate is deeper cut by 3mm.

4. Medial side of So Kate is HIGHER cut  than the Pigalle 120.

Again, I have the medial edges of the two styles places side by side, and you can see that the So Kate (behind, right side) is higher cut by ~3mm.

Lastly, a group pic of all my So Kates, thanks for letting me share!

    I want to pick up a pair of so Kate’s, but they are so hard to find:( Thanks for the comparison, I didn’t like the old style pigalle’s because it was way too much toe cleavage for my liking, but I think the problem will be less with the so Kates/

    The So Kates are indeed very popular right now and are almost instantly sold out. If you’re purchasing from a department store, I would suggest waitlisting with a good SA, as I find they often don’t follow up. I usually prefer to make my purchases with my usual SAs at one of the Louboutin boutiques instead. If you need a reference, please let me know and I can email you her contact.
    Thanks for visiting!

    I’ve fallen in love with Manolos because of your blog post about their comfort in comparison to the Pigalles. I now have them in several colors!

    I love the look of the So Kates but are they as uncomfortable as the Pigalles? I know the toebox makes a huge difference!

    Thanks for your amazing blog posts!

    Thanks Vanessa! I’m glad my pix and blog are helpful to your shopping needs!
    I personally find the So Kates to be slightly more comfy cuz the toe box is more forgiving. However, it’s definitely not a practical shoe, more of a “dinner and sit” style, and I would probably not recommend it for a first date either…
