The media makes a lot of its money in people’s obsessive interest in the lives of their favorite celebrities. Everyone wants to know what the celebs are wearing so that they can get the same, or at least something approaching the same. Many businesses cash in on this desire by offering replica or knock off designer shoes – the last category is actually illegal because the design houses lose money from knock offs.
There is no doubt that the ever growing cult of celebrity in both the US and here in the UK has led to more people wanting to own designer shoes. Hardly a week goes by without some women’s magazine calling for its readers to get shoes like Kylie or like Kate Moss. Nowadays more people are spending their money on Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin women’s shoes than ever before, and a growing market has led to a growth in the number of websites offering discount designer shoes.
The wives and girlfriends of world class footballers, or wags as they are known have increased the popularity of designer brands such as Christian Louboutin women’s shoes. If you buy discount designer shoes then it is possible to get Christian Louboutin peep toe, Mary Jane heels for around a hundred and thirty pounds – and other Louboutin shoes at an even lower price.
Some dealers are cashing in on the fact that celebrities have brought designer shoes to the attention of the general public and they are selling look alike shoes. Most women however, would prefer to save their money until they can afford a real pair of Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo shoes rather than a pair that just looks like them. If you really want genuine Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo shoes, just like Kylie wears then you should be looking for discount designer shoes.
When you buy women’s designer shoes, not only are you getting to wear the same shoes as your favourite celebrity, you are also getting a pair of shoes that will last longer and look better than almost any other shoes you have ever bought. Jimmy Choo shoes are a particular favorite with celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss, and they can both be seen sporting the latest designs to come from that particular design house – but even with a discount you would need to save for quite a while for Jimmy Choo shoes.
Designers justify the prices they charge for a pair of shoes, which can literally run into thousands of dollars, by pointing to the quality of their goods – as well as the feel good factor that owning a pair of designer shoes can give to a woman. Discount designer shoes, such as those from Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik, can be found if you look in the right places. Such discounts often come from a retailer overstocking on some designs, or the fact that the shoes may not be the current season’s favourite. Many women are less concerned with having the latest designer shoes as they are with the fact that can actually afford to wear the designer name tag.
