Real vs. Steal – Brian Atwood Maniac Hidden Platform Pumps

Update: This post has been updated on September 28, 2011. Scroll down to see the new add.

I usually don’t like publishing 2 consequent posts about the same brand, but in the case of Brian Atwood I think I can make an exception. His rise to fame started somewhen last year with the “Maniac” platform pump which was one of the first 5″ heels to conquer the red carpet & every female celebrity’s heart. Nude pumps were starting to make the round back then and Brian Atwood’s version was especially appealing with its hidden platform, the high arch and delicious taupe color. Despite their hefty price tag of $660, it didn’t take long until these were completely sold out.

Steve Madden “RUSSHH” Platform Pumps

Ever since I discovered Brian Atwood’s Maniac pumps I was hoping and waiting for a good copy to come along. Surprisingly, it took longer than expected, but we finally have a Maniac doppelgänger courtesy of Steve Madden. Madden’s version isn’t quite as high and the color is not a perfect match, but at that price I’m not complaining. Available in 9 different colors and finishes: black, blush, fuchsia, lavender, nude, teal and wine patent as well as black and plum suede.
