Ask BB: Christian Louboutin PVC Illusion Pumps Look for Less

Christian Louboutin "Unbout" and "Pivichic" pumps

I have been seeing the Christian Louboutin PVC "Un Bout" pump (above left) and the "Pivichic" pumps and I just can't resist! But I live in flats and although pumps and stilettos are wonderful to look at, my feet belong to flats. Any idea where I could find some flats with a similar illusion-like, clear look to them? —JG

Celebrities like Kristen Stewart, Brooklyn Decker and Emma Stone all share your love of Christian Louboutin's modern take on the see-through Cinderella slipper, whether in neon and clear plastic, bright red or demure black.

But even Christian Louboutin recognizes some ladies will prefer to take on this trend with both feet firmly planted on the ground, so there's a flat option to fit the bill:

The "Corbeau Ayers" $625 pricetag is a bit prohibitive, so let's look at some look-for-less options.

First, for those who want the heel, here's an option at for $34.99 (I prefer the tan):

Louboutin un boot neon plastic knockoff

Qupid makes a version of this shoe, too, in white, black or pink for $39.95 at (they also make a cute flat!):

These BCBGeneration PVC "Cynthia" pumps are another good option - the quality is probably better for $89:

For flats, Forever 21 carries these clear plastic cap-toes in black or peach for $19.90:

...or these bold jelly flats in neon yellow or pink for $24.80: has a plastic cap-toe flat, too, in yellow, peach or light blue for $29.95 called the "Trieste": Trieste flats

Meanwhile carries these Deena & Ozzy clear flats with a cool ankle-strap ($34):

Have a suggestion for JG? Let her know in the comments!

I'm a fan of this trend. Thanks for providing the more cost effective options!
