Real vs. Steal – Gianvito Rossi Ankle-Cuff Sandals

When it comes to designer shoes, I do love big names such as Louboutin, Zanotti and Blahnik, but Gianvito Rossi is my newest discovery and probably a big name soon himself. Admittedly, he’s actually not much of a newbie, but I feel like this brand has risen its profile drastically lately. Rossi shoes are a big thing now and you can find them in almost any designer fashion store nowadays. Looking at shoes like the one pictured below, Rossi’s success doesn’t really surprise me. His aesthetic vision is clear, his designs meticulous and the craftmanship superb (it’s “Made in Italy”, after all!). Too bad all this shoe goodness comes with a matching price tag.
