As a Loubie collector, over the years they've clearly become more and more popular and the quality has changed a bit as well. The stiching is different, the insoles have changed (just minor things I've observed). I find myself not liking any of the newer styles from the past few seasons. I dreaded the change of the 'pigalle', so now I've just been sticking to the 'So Kates'. I honestly don't like any other style as of current. They look cheap and tacky in my opinion. Anyone else feeling this way? Is Christian targeting a different type of consumer?
