Buying My First Pair of Louboutins


This weekend I happened to go for a walk and discovered a new Preloved Designer consignment shop called Cobblers Wardrobe in Sandymount.

It’s where a small cobblers shop used to be- it’s renowned for resoling Louboutin shoes and shoe repairs, which it still does but also sells second hand high end designer clothing labels and shoes.

I discovered a pair of Louboutin Pigalle in my size (the platform version) which has been worn once. I couldn’t believe my luck- I’ve always wanted a pair of Louboutins but could never justify the, what in this case are €545 from Brown Thomas. The pair I found were €300.

The shoes came in their own dust bag, box and the original receipt from Brown Thomas. Read about when I met Christian Louboutin himself christian louboutin.
