Christian Louboutin of Africa?

For every fashion fanatic, Christian Louboutin is a household name that remains ever so cherished and adored. Christian Louboutin shoes are possessions that are cherished not just for their aesthetic appeal but also due to the fact that they cost a couple of bucks. With a cost range meddling with lows of approximately $600 and highs of $5000 and above, Louboutin shoes have been called the most popular footwear worn by celebrities.

But not to be carried away, South Africa’s Phindi K shoes are also moving waves. Phindi K is a Christian Louboutin of Africa?shoe and bag design company owned by Phindi and Tshepo Kgaudi – a married couple of 12 years. Situated in Johannesburg, Phindi K designs red-soled shoes that are produced in Brazil. The shoes range in price from R500 to R2300, according to Stylescoop, and have a tip made from “special skateboard material and seven layers of bonding”. According to Phindi, “our tips last longer than most products on the market because of the tough maerial we use”. Phindi K intends to grow their brand nationally and internationally “so you should not be surprised when, in a couple of years, among your favorite items in your closet are a pair of red-soled South African shoes”. 

House of Phindi K designs shoes for both men and women. The women’s shoes include high heel sandals, high heel pumps, pointy shoes, open toe pumps, gladiator sandals and booties. Their Christian Louboutin of Africa?collection includes sandals perfect for an evening dress (like their Pitanga Satin sandal), such peep toe pumps as their Marrom Leather shoe suitable for a work dress or jeans, gladiator sandals and Violeta Snake print, low heeled enough especially for those looking to merge fashion and comfort. Phindi K also offers their Offwhite Peep Toe shoe for the chic and contemporary fashionista. On a warm day, the Offwhite Peep Toe shoe could be matched with navy blue shorts, a cream colored top and a nice chronograph watch. They also offer an array of men’s shoes- mocassins, dress shoes, boots, etc.
