Hey

Just a question for the knowledge queens on her. I understand that a size 35 and size 42 simple 100 would have a heel difference due to size but I've attached a photo of my Simple 42.5's and Pigalle follies 42 which should both have the same height heel given they are 100's but the simple has a 105mm and the Pigalle 125mm which is quite a difference, any theories why?

I own different louboutins, in different sizes, but I haven`t such a difference in heel height... I own a pair of Pigalle 120 in size 38.5 and So Kate in size 40, but they`re almost the same height... the same with my Pigalle 100 in size 40.5 and Pigalle Follies 100 in size 39.5 , I have the Decollete 554 100 in 39 and 39.5 and they are the same height, I have Pigalle Follies 120 in size 40 and So Kate in 39.5 and the are the same height......to me, it looks like the PF is a 120, not a 100, could that be? :confused1:

That`s a comparison between my Decollete 554 100 (black) in 39 and Pigalle 100 (turquoise) in 39.5

And between my nude So Kate, size 39.5, and black patent Pigalle Follies 120, size 40

That looks like the height difference in your pic, but it`s a comparison between the 100mm IMG_20170319_212808_686.jpg Anjalina (with the spikes) and the nude 120mm So Kate...

Found another one... Pigalle Follies 100 red-black-degrade and Pigalle 100, both 39.5, there`s a slight difference in heel height, but only a visible difference, I don´t notice it when wearing them and walking, they feel the same, height-wise ( is that even a word? If not, I`m sorry, I´m not a native speaker... ;) )

A better pic of the 39.5 nude SK 120 and the 40 Pigalle Follies 120. The PF is higher, BUT I have non-Louboutin heel tips on the PF and those tips are different from the Louboutin heel tips, which explains the slightly higher heel on the PF IMG_20170405_210649_908.jpg

Based on your pic, ruglover, it looks like your Pigalle Follies are 120mm. HHA's comparison pics essentially confirms it.

Is it possible you simply got a pair of 120s by mistake in the box?
