The Look for Less (Louboutin Praia)

     I fell in love with Louboutin's wedge platform espadrille, Praia, the first time I laid eyes on it last year. I even wanted to have it custom-made locally since I wouldn't be able to afford the real thing but never got to.

     I got the chance to go window shopping a while ago and I saw this! A replica from Australian.  Infairness, they were really able to get a similar espadrille sole.  The buckles are not so nice though. I tried them on and they were pretty comfy. I think it's because of the "padding" they used on the part where you step on. Not bad eh?
Australian Platform Wedge Espadrille at P1,800. A bit too pricey for the brand if you ask me

Here's another version w/ ribbon and ankle straps.


  1. Why do you think it's pricey? For the brand? Baka naman mahal production cost nila. Hehe :)

  2. Yeah pricey for the brand. I have some australian pairs and they're not that expensive :)
