Matalan’s ruffle-front Louboutin lookalikes now available in red

matalan-ruffle-front-shoesMatalan’s ruffle-front shoes caused a bit of a stir when they first came out a couple of months ago, not least because they looked a whole lot like Christian Louboutin’s ‘Dillian’ pumps.

At the time, the only thing that really put me off buying them was the bright orange colour, which I didn’t think would work with most of my wardrobe. Now, though, Matalan have just released the same shoes in bright red. It’s like they’re trying to force me to buy them. Red shoes are a particular weakness of mine, and while I’m still not sure a ruffle that large would work well away from the runway or red carpet, it IS detachable, and the shoe underneath is rather nice too.

Did I mention they’re only £18? Oh, Matalan,why must you place temptation in my way like this?

  • I saw these at dinnertime today in store. They are just a little more pinky coloured than they look here, but still divine. And it looked like they were selling out fast so if you want some, you’ll need to be quick!

  • I really want these! Not sure if I can justify ANOTHER pair of red shoes though! Can’t find them on the site 🙁

    • Looks like they’ve sold out in the last couple of hours – they were definitely there this morning! Which means I’ll now have to go to the store if I want to try and find them 🙁

  • They do them in purple too! I have them in purple and they’re really nice, although I didn’t realise until just now that I could take the ruffle bit off if I wanted to. You learn something new every day! I actually, literally CANNOT walk in them and don’t dare wear them for fear of breaking my neck but hey, they were cheap and look really nice on my bedroom floor 🙂
