Giuseppe Zanotti

UPDATE: This post has been updated on January 24, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

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.

Signore Giuseppe Zanotti, you are killing me with your shoes! I constantly find myself craving his fabulous Italian shoes, but the accompanying price tags just don’t sit well with me. For instance, I absolutely adore this nubuck leather peep-toe front-zip bootie, but even the sale price makes me want to faint. $671.25? I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Today I felt like showing you a fancy shoe. And of course, you can’t go by speaking about fancy shoes and not mention Italian shoemaster Giuseppe Zanotti in this regard. So here you have one of his rather fancy shoes; sparkling in a beautiful gold hue with a bold snake-effect leather texture and a sky-high stiletto heel. Who knew mules could look so sexy, right?

Today marks the first day of Fall which also means: it’s officially bootie time! And let me tell you: I loooooove bootie time! Why, you ask? Because I loooooove booties, silly. And how could I not with so many fab ankle boots such as these by Giuseppe Zanotti available around me? The asymmetrical zipper that runs across the boot is such a nice extra detail, don’t you agree? It’s what makes this shoe stand out without being too loud and demanding. I love when shoes have that vibe. What I don’t love though? The price of these Zanottis. And we’re already talking sale price here. Sheesh!

Well, hello there Giuseppe Zanotti darlings! You look quite nice. I love your serpent gold ankle strap detail along with the snake-embossed leather and the pin-thin stiletto heel of yours. How about you both hop into my shopping cart, huh? Oh, wait a moment, is that a $1.600 price tag I spot on you? Uhm, well, it was really nice meeting you. Gotta go now. Bye!
