Step 1: Real vs fake Christian Louboutin Pigalle insole signature

As for the first step of the guide on how to spot fake Louboutin Pigalle heels, we are going to look inside the real vs fake Louboutin Pigalle heels for the classic Christian Louboutin signature.

In the image with the fake vs real Louboutin Pigalle heels above, we have pointed out how the fake heels have their signature at the wrong font-weight.

By that, we mean that the fake item has its letters at different thicknesses than the ones found on the legit heels.

In fact the replica Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels have their “hristian” letters looking too thin and too little legible.

On the other hand, the authentic Pigalle Louboutin have their letters in the same “hristian” inscription looking thicker, as they are engraved deeper.

At the same time, the inscriptions on the authentic heels being thicker, they are easier to be read when compared to the fake shoes’ inscription.

Up next, talking about the letter “L” which also forms the “C” in the signature, you can see how the fake shoes have their letter looking too thick and bulky in the middle.

Talking about the legitimate Louboutin Pigalle shoes, you can see how the letter “L” and “C” in the signature looks thinner and sharper than the same element of the logo found on teh authentic heels.

Lastly, looking at the “ouboutin” inscription found on the fake shoes, you can see how they have their letters once again looking too thin and too little legible.

Yet again, the legitimate Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels have their “ouboutin” text looking thicker and more defined than teh one found on the fake heels.

Step 2: Check the “Paris” text on the insole of your Louboutin Pigalle heels

On teh other hand, the authentic Pigalle Louboutins are engraved less deep into the insole, therefore being thinner than teh ones found on teh fake heels.

Due to the letters being too thick, you can see ho white fake Pigalle Louboutins have their letter with too little space between.
