Real vs. Steal – Burberry Buckled Leather Sandals

by Juliana on July 19, 2013

Update: This post has been updated on July 19, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

Never was there a more comfortable heel for those of us who rarely wear flats. This design by Burberry has all the sophistication and allure of stilettos but thanks to the high platform and ankle straps, the stairs in your office building will be less daunting. This pair will get you so much mileage because you’ll be able to wear them with all of your wide leg pants and trousers! Simply add a signature black tote with gold hardware and you’ll be all set. The price is a bit steep though, so if you rather not spend your whole shoe budget on them, we can help with an amazing steal below!

Steve Madden “CRITIKAL” Buckled Sandals

How amazing is this pair by Steve Madden for only a fraction of the price? They have the same details, with just a few modifications: silver vs. gold hardware and a slightly shorter heel. But other than that they are almost identical! Upon closer look, I think a pencil skirt and a white blouse would look fantastic with these. Finish the outfit with a handbag similar to Stella McCartney’s Falabella, and keep the rest of your accessories modern and minimal: perhaps add a set of silver bangles and that’s it. More great news? They are also available in cognac and white leather.
