$18M worth of fake Christian Louboutin heels

From over at CNN (www.cnn.com) Los Angeles customs recently discovered 20,457 pairs of fake Christian Louboutin heels in a shipment from China. The article goes on to say that the sale of these shoes would have made about $18 million if they had made it to the stores in America.

That means that each pair of these fake heels would have sold for about $880.

What I would like to know is would a woman wearing fake Louboutin heels be able to tell the difference from the real thing? Are there design and shape differences that make a difference when wearing the real thing?

Obviously this is something I will never know for myself and Christine says she is unlikely to ever spend $800 on a pair of high heels no matter how much she loves them and that is for the fake Louboutins. The real ones are probably closer to $1,000 or more. To test out the comfort difference she would need to buy a real pair and a pair of the fakes so that would be about $2,000 in all. Not likely to happen really . . .

And now for our sexy heel picture guarantee here is the awesome Kate Beckinsale wearing real Louboutin eye-catching heels (thanks to Christine for finding this).
