As the popularity of Christian Louboutin’s So Kate heels continues to grow, there’s been a lot of request for comparison pix between the Pigalle 120 and So Kate (which so far only comes in heel height 120). So I finally got around to edit these pix. I’ve made a few observations of some differences that I noticed, please let me know if you ladies require more pictures. Hope this helps with your shopping!
For reference, all pictures below are shown with the old/pre-FW13 Pigalle 120 on the left and So Kate on the right. My Pigalle 120 sizing is 35 and So Kate is 35.5, but both fit me the same.
1. So Kate has longer overall length by 5-6mm.
2. So Kate’s heel is shorter by 2-3mm and is thinner with a slight curvature.
3. Lateral side of So Kate is actually LOWER cut than the Pigalle 120.
I have the 2 shoes’ lateral edges side by side, and you can see that the So Kate is deeper cut by 3mm.
4. Medial side of So Kate is HIGHER cut than the Pigalle 120.
Again, I have the medial edges of the two styles places side by side, and you can see that the So Kate (behind, right side) is higher cut by ~3mm.
Lastly, a group pic of all my So Kates, thanks for letting me share!
