Real vs. Steal – Brian Atwood Gaynor Cork Platform Heels

Cork heels seem so retro and yet so of-the-moment, don’t they? Exhibit A, these “Gaynor” heels by Brian Atwood. I’m a big fan of Brian Atwood, but these cork heels are especially amazing. The cork lends a casual spring-time feel while the black patent leather gives them a festive aura. Guaranteed to win you lots of compliments, these shoes are a must have. Oh, but what’s that? They’re upwards of $600 AND sold out? Well then why not try…

UPDATE (03/23/2010): Found a second steal version of the Brian Atwood sandals by Jeffrey Campbell. The heel is wooden instead of cork, but everything else is quite the same. Available in black and gold.

Nine West “Bigbaby” Cork Sandals

…these Nine West sandals? Almost an exact dupe for the Brian Atwood heels, these NW shoes will set you back only a fraction of the cost. All the details are there, from the platform to the chunky heel; from the patent leather to the delicate ankle strap. These come in an abundant amount of colors too (black, red, white and yellow patent) – perfect for every occasion!
