Shopping the Walter Steiger sale is pretty straight forward. Simply RSVP for an appointment and shop through an assortment of shoes and bags starting at $100. The Louboutin sale, on the other hand, is shrouded by secrecy and custom. Shoes start at about $250 and there is a secret RSVP email account, security and successful crushers.
So, if you're planning on cueing up for your shiney red soles bright and early Monday morning we suggest-- you don't! The first days of the Louboutin sale are reserved for those whose star is shining bright enough grace the cover of a magazine or a headline on a network drama. For instance, Blake Lively is a day one sale regular.
If you're really serious about snagging some red hot sole love, your best luck will be when press begins shopping on Wednesday. Usually an email and a RSVP line are established but we all know the press isn't very good about keeping a secret.
Stay tuned, we will continue to update readers on the best Louboutin shopping tactics and remain watchful of prices at Walter Steiger. And, just remember, if Louboutin fails you, there's alway Manolo.
