Recently Manolo Blahnik's BB 105 has been very popular and there were several people wanting to compare this style to Christian Louboutin's Pigalle 100. I personally think they're two completely different styles. I've created this thread with pix for comparison, so you ladies can judge for yourself Please note that the Pigalle here is like 1/4 size too small, but the BBs are 1/4 size too big on me lol... So overall I would say that the BB here is relatively half size bigger than the Pigalle if that makes sense... 1. Heel height - BB is 5mm higher at 105mm 2. Type of heel - BB is MUCH thinner, maybe 1/3 of Pigalle's and is slightly curved. View attachment Comparison1.MB_BB.CL_Pigalle.jpg Shoes below lined against flat surface perpendicular to table, so that they're aligned from the heel, showing accurate length comparison. 3. Toebox - BB is slightly longer and wider. Like I said, the relative size difference is about half a size. So the BB's length is probably only about 4-5 mm longer than the Pigalle, rather than what the pic shows at about 10 mm View attachment Comparison2.MB_BB.CL_Pigalle.jpg View attachment Comparison3.MB_BB.CL_Pigalle.jpg Lastly, 4. Level of comfort is probably what ultimately differentiates the two styles. BB is like 100000000 times more comfortable cuz they're about 5mm longer and 5 mm wider than the Pigalle. Plus, Manolo's patent leather (suede and fabric too!) is MUCHHHHHH softer than CL's patent leather which is rock hard, which I guess makes it more difficult to break in... I have 4 pairs and wear them to work, dinner, shopping, just about anything! I can't imagine wearing the Pigalle anywhere other than sitting on my couch LOL!
