Just admit it, you all wish you could afford to buy Christian Louboutin’s new range of footwear each season but for roughly £500 a pair, why spend that amount of money on just 1 pair when you can buy 100 from the Everything5Pounds website?

What is it That Makes Designer Labels So Prestigious?

It could be anything from the quality of the shoe, to the style or just the thought that you could have the same pair of shoes as Beyoncé or Victoria Beckham. But really, how much better are designer shoes than your average everyday shoes which you buy at high street shops or on our online store? Let’s take a look and compare shoes.

White on White


On the left we have our £5 Diamante Trim Satin Court Shoes and on your right we have Christian Louboutin’s Princess Glitter Heels which will set you back £495. So what’s the big difference? Well of course if you know anything about Christian Louboutin’s shoes then you’ll know it has that distinctive red sole, but what else makes them worth £490 more? We know that adding a designer label to shoes makes them way more expensive but are you really just paying for the brand name? Look at it in this perspective, if our shoes on the left from Everything5Pounds had the Christian Louboutin designer label on them, would you look at them differently? Would that make them appear more appealing or do you just see them as an average pair of shoes?

It’s All About the Buckle

As for boots we have our £5 Studded Buckle Side Calf Boots on the left and a pair of £550 Mulberry Atholl ankle boots on the right. Now obviously the Mulberry ones are real leather and the E5P ones aren’t but they look quite similar, they both have buckles and are roughly the same style. So what’s so wrong about buying cheap women’s boots? Fashion is constantly changing and because of this, so will your shoes so what’s the point in spending hundreds of pounds on a pair of women’s boots you’ll only wear for a few seasons when you can spend much less money and carry on revamping your wardrobe each month?

Make a Statement


Lastly we have a pair of basic flats with a bit of gold detailing. One major difference is that the E5P pair on the left are £5 and the pair on the right are a £335 Gucci pair. Now flats needs to be comfortable and worn in properly so you avoid those nasty blisters. The Gucci pair are made from real leather and of course it’s a light gold detail at the front and they are made in Italy which is a famous country for making good, quality shoes. The pair on the left are made from a faux leather material but after wearing them for a while they’ll soon be more comfortable. So would you spend an extra £330 on a pair of flats? If you want a decent, quality pair of leather flats you don’t have to spend designer money as many of your high street stores will sell real leather ones at a reasonable price.

Of course it would be nice to be able to have that luxury of being able to spend loads of money on shoes, but when you look at how much more you can buy for your money, is having that designer label really worth it? What would you rather have, 1 pair of shoes or 100 pairs? The choice is yours!
