It’s no secret that women are in love with shoes; so much that some even go as far as having a procedure called “Cinderella” just to be able to fit into a decent pair of sexy high heels.
According to NDP Group, a consumer research firm, online shoe sales generated just under $1 billion in sales through September 2009.
Yes, despite the recession, online sales of designer shoes were up by 25% and business is booming.
Unfortunately, not everyone can afford the price tags that come along with owning a pair of top designer shoes such as the very popular Christian Louboutin and others. This is where the deeply discounted copy cats come in. I would be willing to bet anything this is also where much of the money from the millions of dollars being spent on shoes is going.
ABC’s “20/20” went bargain hunting online for high-fashion Christian Louboutins only to learn that more than half of the sites they purchased from were selling fakes, despite the sites claims that they were authentic.
