Certain brands always go on sale a little later than all of the other designer collections. The usual holdouts often include Celine, Christian Louboutin and Chanel. We unofficially heard that these brands will hit the sale section on June 9 but some retailers have gone off script and already started discounting Louboutin shoes.
The Louboutin shoe and bag discounts range from 30% to 40% off. Over at Barneys you will find the highest discounts. Styles included in the markdown are Trepi High Platform Sandals that are about $700 from $1145, Follies Spikes Pumps that are about $775 from almost $1300 and more basic nude pumps are $510 from $900.
If you’re interested in shopping for discount Louboutins at Saks it’s best if you avoid the NYC Flagship. The space is actually leased by Christian Louboutin and they haven’t started discounting their red soles. Saks Fifth Avenue stores outside of New York, however, are ripe for shopping at a 30% discount. Among the sale styles are many of the same styles found at Barneys with the addition of these lip print pumps, Tulle Point Toe pumps and heart toe pumps.
We’ve heard from many reliable sources that Christian Louboutin’s sales aren’t what they used to be. The shoe floor is getting a lot more competitive with newcomers like Gianvito Rossi and Aquazurra. Just remember, no diva stays on top forever and retailers are quickly growing tired of Louboutin’s demands and antics.
