Real vs. Steal – Alexander McQueen Satin Square Toe Pumps

by Irina on February 3, 2009

So we’re back at Alexander McQueen again. I told I am big fan of his designs, so here we’ll go again with another gorgeous pair of footwear he created. These square toe pumps were pretty hot on the red carpet about 6 months ago. They retailed for $595 at Net-A-Porter, but are now completely sold out.

L.A.M.B. “Primrose” Square Toe Pumps

Not being the cheapest alternative ($252.12, sale price), but certainly a very good one is this square toe pump by Gwen Stefani’s brand L.A.M.B. called “Primrose” which comes in either black or plum satin. The heel is slightly different and the pumps have a metal embellishment on each vamp, but otherwise they look quite the same.

Office Point and Square Pumps

This is by far my favorite “interpretation” of Alexander McQueen’s square toe pumps. I love the faux snakeskin pattern and the extreme high heel. These Office pumps seem to be overall well manufactured and clean in design. They are a bit expensive with £70 (~$100), but I am sure they’ll be a great investment. The pumps also come in red and black patent and pewter.

Aldo “Saric” Square Toe Pumps

Another great alternative if you want Alexander McQueen 4 Less are these “Saric” square toe pumps by Aldo. They retail for $90 and were available in black satin like the Alexander McQueen ones, but apparently sold out and now the only colors left are black and red patent and black leather.

Steven By Steve Madden “Sedona” Square Toe Pumps

Of course Steve Madden couldn’t pass upon the chance to create his own version of the square toe pump which is called “Sedona”. His square toe pump comes in black patent with a faux fakeskin pattern, but the style is otherwise pretty similar.
