If you are looking for a classic, classic peep-toe pump that you’ll go to again and again, take a look in your bank account then make a choice between the Christian Louboutin Knotted Pump, $895, and the Aldo Orpin Pump, $90. The nude peep-toe patent pump is not such a highly original design that we think Aldo has necessarily ripped off Christian Louboutin’s design here. The comparison is meant to highlight how cleverly Aldo has captured a truly high-end aesthetic with their suede, stacked platform shoe. But do the gathered knife pleats stand up to the artful gathering on the designer version? Do you miss the chic knot on the high end variety? We’re still gathering evidence.
