I’ve always gotten a huge kick out of the fact that I have a luxury brand named after me (OK, OK, maybe not named after me, but you know) and of course I’m even more pleased that Céline actually puts out beautiful clothes, handbags and shoes. I have to be honest with you, though, I’m not a big fan of the wooden wedges that we’re featuring on ITC today. Yes, the craftsmanship is stellar-as always-the leather and suede are beautiful, the studs are exquisite, but that huge wedge just looks vaguely… orthopedic to me. Of course that doesn’t really matter; I happen to know that these shoes have a huge following – I am the lone dissenter! Well, considering that these wedges are by Céline, I’m sure they retail for some astronomical price, but we couldn’t find it. We’re also not sure where they’re being sold BUT…

Jeffrey Campbell “Snick” Studded Wedges

Update (05/16/2010): Here’s another Céline wedge knockoff by our beloved Jeffrey Campbell. His “Snick” wooden wedges are quite obviously knockoffs and come in either natural, tan or black or olive suede.

Steve Madden “WARRICK” Wedges

Yes, BUT…who cares how much the Céline wedges retail for because we found these Steve Madden “WARRICK” wedges and we think they’re a pretty darn good knockoff. Not only are they pretty reasonably priced, but they’re actually available. I also happen to like that these have a slightly gradated platform, as compared to the level platform of the originals. That gives them a more modern look. In conclusion, if you’re going to give this style a try, why not test the waters on the cheaper side of the pool?
