Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti Cut-Out Peep-toe Booties

by Irina on September 3, 2009

Finding weather appropriate shoes for the transition phase between summer and fall can be quite tough sometimes. You can’t wear sandals because your feet would freeze at night, but wearing booties the all day long will cook your feet and make them a boiling torture as well. That’s why open-toe ankle booties are just perfect for this difficult time. They let your feet breathe during the day, but keep them warm at night. The Giuseppe Zanotti cut-out peep-toe booties below are a great example of such footwear.

Type Z “Twilight” Cut-out Ankle Boots

These cut-out peep-toe booties by Type Z will give you an almost identical Giuseppe Zanotti look for about 1/6 of the original’s sale price. The heel is slightly thicker on these knockoffs, but apart from that they could be easily mistaken for the real deal, don’t you think?

Dorothy Perkins Lace Up Strap Booties

UK/European fans of the above Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe booties can save some serious cash as well by opting for these Zanotti look-a-likes by Dorothy Perkins. They lack the contrast white stitching, but make up for this with the almost identical stiletto heel. Plus, they’re currently on sale for £25 (were £38).
