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. 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 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!
