Christian Louboutin
650 N Robertson Blvd
West Hollywood, CA
(310) 247-9300

While many of Christian Louboutin’s own fans have trouble pronouncing his name, there isn’t a single fashionista who can’t positively identify the shiny red bottoms of his designer pumps. Louboutin, whose leg-elongating stilettos are often five inches or taller, says Parisian showgirls inspired him to pursue his calling.

DSW
Sherman Oaks Galleria
15301 Venture Blvd
Sherman Oaks, CA
(818) 981-2377
www.dsw.com

Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) has a shoe selection akin to what you’d find at most fine department stores. But don’t worry about paying even half price for some of the most fashionable designs by Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Marc by Marc Jacobs. The only way you’ll empty your wallet here is by snatching up several pairs of men’s, women’s and children’s shoes that you just can’t pass up.

Tory Burch
142 S Robertson Blvd
Los Angeles, CA
(310) 248-2612
www.toryburch.com

Tory Burch’s signature Reva ballet flats became a Hollywood staple shortly after she launched her fashion line in 2004. It’s no surprise that her sandals, flip flops, wedges, heels and boots have also become seasonal favorites among A-listers. To see her complete collection, as well as accessories and designer frocks, visit boutiques in Costa Mesa, Malibu, Santa Monica or Los Angeles.

Target
3535 S La Cienega Blvd
Los Angeles, CA
(310) 895-1131
www.target.com

Target has made fashions from designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Zac Posen and Isaac Mizrahi affordable for most, so it’s no surprise that the retailer enlisted Cynthia Vincent to craft some sexy yet inexpensive sandals and wedges. When seasons come to an end, shoes that often retail for just under $30 can even be found for under $10.

Steve Madden

Glendale, CA 91210
(818) 545-0111

These reasonable yet well-made shoes allow you to keep up with the latest trends without spending your life savings on a solitary pair of peep-toe pumps. From sandals, boots, platforms and flats to the higher-end Steven by Steve Madden line, there’s a little something for everyone at locations across Southern California. Madden even has ultra trendy and affordable men’s shoes and sandals.

Manolo Blahnik
Barney’s Department Store
9570 Wilshire Blvd
Beverly Hills, CA
(310) 276-4400
www.manoloblahnik.com

Manolo Blahnik opened his first shop in London’s Chelsea in 1973, but the Canary Islands-born designer became a household name thanks to “Sex and the City.” Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, would notoriously drop rent-worthy amounts of money on the designer stilettos that are available at stores such as Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Foot Candy and some Nordstrom locations.
