I do not like the patent round-toed Clichys that much, but the silk ones are gorgeous! I wish I had found out about them earlier...

My lady and myself visited the Louboutin boutique in London on Saturday, hoping to they may still do the Pigalle and to see what else they had of interest.

Unfortunately they no longer do the Pigalle. (In fact the French assistant wasn't very helpful, giving us an abrupt "we don't do that style anymore" - he didn't suggest any similar shoes that we may like, as any good sales person would. Although this may be because he was working on his own, and already had a customer trying on shoes.)

They also had the Clichy, but only in a 4" heel, and to be quite honest, it looked like a very "average" shoe with the lower heel (looking at it on display - my lady didn't try it on).

The purpose of the trip was to find a quality classic plain black high court shoe (pumps to the Americans here).

We also popped in to Harvey Nichols and Harrods, but didn't see anything, so a disappointing trip. (Other than a buying a great pair of red summer wedges from the LK Bennett concession in Harvey Nics.)

Does anyone know of anywhere in the UK (ideally South of England) that might stock the Pigalle, or are we now out of luck?

So has anyone been in the NYC Louboutin lately? Do they still have clichy pumps? I LOVE the white/blue striped that someone posted.

They look like they'd be hard to wear. I might try them, for the right occassion but they are really just OK in my opinion and not pretty enough, too plain. If I saw somebody with them on, I'd probably think she was just trying to look taller and nothing more. They look more like stilts than stilettos.

In my opinion they look kinda boring(and tacky)with 4. It is the set back straight 5 inch one which makes the shoe exeptional sophisticated and "couture"ish
