    I always thought Louboutin sizes went by European size charts so I would fit a size 44 Louboutin since i'm a size 11 US.

    My friend has about 3 pairs of Louboutins and he says I need a size 43.

    So i'm not sure. Exactly what is correct? I've looked online and can't find a Louboutin sizing guide so please tell me here/

    44 EU = 11 US, as you pointed out.

    Does your friend know what he's talking about? Ask him how large or small his shoes run, or try them on yourself if they're within a size just to see how big or small they are on you.

    Louboutin is not a very popular brand on this forum (like Balmain, it started with womenswear only and functions almost purely on brand-name hype); I doubt anybody who reads this is going to be able to give you precise sizing advice, and it likely differs from shoe to shoe and/or season to season. Are you looking at dress shoes, loafers, sneakers, ... ?

    I don't know much about Louboutin's but you might want to try this link for some FAQ and online assistance?

    http://us.christianlouboutin.com/assistance

    I'm sure a brand like them would have top notch customer service as well

    Yeah, he's a hypebeast but he's rich so he can buy whatever he wants... But i'm not getting these for the hype. http://us.christianlouboutin.com/mens-shoes/tasselissimo-men-s-flat.html

    But yeah, I wish I knew more about non-hyped brands. That's why I signed up to a few fashion related forums, I have no style and I only know of hyped brands like Balmain, Louboutin, Givenchy, Prada etc... I'm not saying that I have no taste in high end fashion but that's all the high end i've been exposed to right now... I actually used to like Air Jordans, Nikes, and such a few years ago but i'm not into sneakers that much anymore. But I won't go on about that on this thread.

    So also thanks @Hlow the dude on the phone said that I can get them at Horatio in NY.

    Those are hideous - get some regular tassel loafers from - say - C&J if that is what you are after.

    EDIT: After looking at the price, almost anything is in range at US$1500 - EG? Lobb? Vass?

    Those shoes look like they have a fungal infection. I suggest burning as the only reasonable path forward.

    If you are going to spend $1500 on a pair of loafers, check out Gaziano and Girling at Bespoke-Engalnd (http://www.bespoke-england.co.uk/). You'll end up with a much better quality shoe that doesn't look like the offspring of Joseph Merrick and a loafer.

    Also if you're really changing your style right now you're way better off instead spending $3-400 on a loafer that you can get used to using, figure out how it works with your style, and what else you could use along with it, before dropping $1500 on one shoe.

    never odd or even
    I'll sell you a pair of suede tassel loafers for 1250 USD* topped with your choice of:

    A) A bowl of potpurri

    B) The bottom of my wife's drapes

    Then it will be exclusive, expensive, and still look ______ .


    *Red painted soles is an up-charge.

    I'm going to call troll.

    There is no way any non-blind man would put those on his feet unless it was a joke-a $1,500 joke.

    Besides, everyone knows this is SF not FF.

    I love the comparisons, funny, but I was just asking about sizes... To me they actually look more like shoe tassels than a bowl of potpourri :)
