For Around $30, a Cobbler Can Turn Your Pedestrian Shoes Into Louboutin Knockoffs

Money can't buy you class, friends.

We feel a little bit worried sharing this insider shoe information with you, because we'd hate for the scary Louboutin lawyers to threaten a humble Upper East Side shoe-repair person now that this secret's out: Blogger Madison Avenue Spy reports that for $22 to $32, her local cobbler will put the same red stuff he uses to repair real Loubs on any old shoe, so you can make your own non-Loubs. Or, if you can bear it, you can just wear shoes with inconspicuous soles. [Madison Avenue Spy]
