Oh my, oh my, oh my! I don’t have words to describe how much I’m in love with these black buckled stiletto booties by Giuseppe Zanotti. They’re so hot and the side buckles are such a sexy little detail, don’t you agree? Too bad even the sale price makes me want to cut my credit card in two.

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is a well-known man on this blog because a) his shoes are absolutely loved by celebrities and b) because his shoes are often copied. And while it’s not cool to copy, I really can’t blame the copycats because shoes as fabulous as these scalloped suede lace-up sandals need to be brought at more affordable price points. At least that’s how I think. My obsession for these Zanotti heels started when I first saw Aimee Song from Song of Style rocking these high-heeled beauties in various of her outfits. I just love the delicate nature of these! They’re incredibly sexy yet still elude a sense of romance. But here’s the deal-breaker: they cost a whopping $1.095 and are pretty much sold out everywhere.

Heels like this one are one of the many reasons why I just freakin’ love Giuseppe Zanotti! Seriously, how much better can it get than these red patent stiletto pumps with a mirrored silver heel? This is what I call absolute shoe perfection! Sure, with its high vamp these look extremely painful to walk in, but us women we don’t wear high heels for the comfort factor, now do we? If I had a spare $650 laying around, I’d so have bought these fire red darlings already!

Well, well, now what do we have here? How about an almost perfect looking Zanotti twin by Steve Madden? The design is staggeringly similar; I’d even say it’s an almost indistinguishable 1:1 copy of the super sexy Zanotti stiletto pump. I think I finally figured out what I want for christmas… (no, not a man, Mariah, but shoes, of course; and these in particular). Get them as well before they sell out which I predict to happen very quickly.

Here we have another pair of the typically OTT Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. The silhouette is all very similar with the sky-high towering heel and some sort of exaggerated design. As usual, my initial liking towards Giuseppe Zanotti footwear always arises some mixed feelings, which later turn into a slight footwear obsession. Undeniably, these exaggerated peep-toe platform pumps are a form of creative vision. Likewise, they look amazing and really elongate one’s legs for a super flattering finish. I really love how Gabrielle Union paired these pumps with a simple yet elegant red dress.

Sam Edelman “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps

Although Zanotti is known for his innovative style, Sam Edelman also brings an inventive touch in the footwear industry. Greatly mimicking the designer deal above, these “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps have a very similar shape and structure. And though the general motif is very comparable, the price tag makes a huge difference! These are not only futuristically beautiful, but also quite affordably priced at $130! Aside from this bright purple version pictured below, they are available in black suede as well.

So who wouldn’t feel like a total star while wearing these star-studded high heels by Giuseppe Zanotti? I know I would. These gorgeous suede stiletto sandals are from Zanotti’s Fall/Winter collection 2013 and definitely belonged to my top 5 Zanotti heels from that season. But OH.MY.LORD! $2.495? What an astronomical price for a pair of heels! There’s absolutely no way I could afford these!

Chinese Laundry “Juggernaut” Star-Embellished Caged High Heel Sandals

Luckily, Chinese Laundry comes to the rescue by bringing us the starred Giuseppe Zanotti designer look for roughly 5% of the originals’ price. Woot, woot, absolute steal alert! The arch on these Chinese Laundry high heels differs slightly (and therefore is probably also way more comfortable to wear I’d guess), but the rest of the design is pretty much identical. Available in black and blush suede leather for $128.
