Cheap vs. Cheaper

Looking at all these t-strap espadrille wedges which ALL look practically identical my assumption is that all of these are knockoffs of some designer heel I haven’t seen or heard of yet. Even though the priciest option here is $150 which compared to all those $800 designer shoes that are often featured here is still on the lower price spectrum I like how there’s still some deal to be had. You can save either 30%, 40% or, if you opt for the cheapest version, a whopping 70%! The look will be the same.

Black Rooster “Highpeak” Espadrille Wedges

P.S.: While this little post was waiting to get published, I happened to stumble upon yet another wedge that looks identical to the ones shown above. In terms of price, Black Rooster‘s Highpeak lies between N.Y.L.A. and Bucco though I’m 95% sure the Black Roosters are just a rebranded version of the N.Y.L.A.s or the other way round. Theser come in a range of beautiful colors including a super lovely blush, gold, black and cognac.

Espadrille wedges are perfect spring/summer shoes. Recently I’ve come across the MICHAEL Michael Kors “Juniper” Espadrilles which instantly reminded me of the Stuart Weitzman “Alex” wedges (famously worn by Jen Aniston and others). At $140 they’re relatively easy on most people’s budgets, but then I happened to come across the “Rode E Oh” wedges by Diba which are practially identical twins but for less than half the price of the Kors shoes. Steal deal!

Sometimes it doesn’t take a designer shoe for another shoe company to knock it off. Case in point: Steve Madden‘s $90 platform pump which has previously been copied by Bamboo and now it’s Qupid who came up with an almost identical Madden twin for a 1/3 of the original’s price. I’m so digging the yellow color, these pumps are what you’ll need to make an outfit pop. And besides, every girl should have a few pairs of fun shoes, right? And ooh, I also like how Qupid’s version is even brighter.

Sometimes it doesn’t take a designer shoe for another shoe company to knock it off. Case in point: Steve Madden‘s $90 platform pump which has been copied by Bamboo who offer an almost identical twin for $30 (that’s about 60% less than the originals). You can thank us later, now get your credit cards out and start shopping because many sizes are already gone.
