Real vs. Steal – Bally Roxine Cork Platform Sandals

by Vahni on April 21, 2010

Alright. So a hippie I am not. I love luxe boho, but that’s about as far as I go. However I’m not so daft as to think that there wouldn’t be a number of freespirits out there who would love a pair of Bally Roxine Cork Platform Sandals. I’m sure they would look fantastic with a short summer shift, and they’re probably supercomfy. They originally retailed for (…guffaw…) $450, but even at half off, that’s a lot of dough to get your hippie on.

Lucky Brand “Taul” Embroidered Cork Sandals

If you’re not a stiletto girl and love the idea of a sensible shoe, these Lucky Brand “Taul” Embroidered Cork Sandals are probably the only pair I’ve ever written about that could even come close to the concept of sensible. And you can add cents to that sensibility—cents that stay in your pocket, that is. Because at $58.45 (sale price!), plus free shipping, this pair definitely makes a lot more sense if you feel the need to free your inner flower child.

    Looking at these corks shoes reminded me, do you think you could find a cheaper version of the Louboutin all cork slingback pump? $755 is not in my budget at all, but I love how original they are! I’d really appreciate it! Thanks!
