Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti E07031 Open Toe Booties

by Irina on December 1, 2010

Update: This post has been updated on December 1, 2010. Scroll down to see the new add.

Peep-toe booties are admittedly not the most practical of all footwear. They’re too warm for summer and too cold for winter, but absolutely perfect for all kinds of weather in between those seasons. Another plus is that peep-toe booties tend to look less bulky than closed ankle boots. Giuseppe Zanotti was the first to start the military trend on shoes in the name of French fashion house Balmain and ever since so many army green, buckled, laced-up, combat-style booties have popped up. None of them quite matched these beauties here though….well, until today…

  • I can’t quite decide if I’m a fan of the open-toe bootie or not! I’m SUCH a heel-addict, maaajor, but I just can’t see myself in these.

    I’m lovin’ your site tho! I’m SO headed back here for more inspiration! Can’t wait to see more!

    Love it!! Where can we get Cameron Diaz’s dress or a look alike for less?

  • Hi Stacey, Cameron’s dress is Balmain which is a very expensive brand (dresses retail for anything between 5-10k). I haven’t seen any look-a-likes yet, but I happen to come across one I make sure to post it to this blog and email you.

  • Sherry
  • Kim

    Can anyone tell me where i can find the knock off version to those boots but with closed toes and not open toe?

  • Uniquebreeze

    My friend posted a version of these fron ZigiNY on twitter the other day. I want to find them soooo bad.
    I need these….

  • Kim

    I love those but i want the knock off to the closed toes Giuseppe Zanotti. Anyone know where i can find them?

  • Kim

    The orginal Zanotti are the best by far but for knock off’s i choose the Yessir and the BCBG if they came in a different color.

  • Oh my, those shoes are fabulous! ☺ I love how Miley and MK wore them.

    Kohls Elle line also has a look-a-like called Vaughn (it’s not on their website yet). It’s listed for $69.99 but it seems everything they sell is always on some sort of sale.

  • Kim

    Hi Gwen, where can i see the the “Vaughn” boots, what website did u see them or where can i see them?

  • Gwen

    They’re not listed on the site.. I’m not sure if they just haven’t updated it yet or they sold out there, but I found them at my local Kohls store. They’re not closed toe, though. I saw your previous comments.

  • Uniquebreeze

    I found them Zigi Soho at DSW…

  • gwen

    The Zigi Sohos look so much like the Alexander Wang Foldover Bootie on a different post. You should post that picture there, great find!

  • Hi Kim,

    I found a closed-toe boot look-a-like of the Zanotti booties: Nine West “Scorpion” Ankle Bootsendless ($139)

  • Kim

    Hi, i saw those but would like the heel to be higher n the shoes a bit more sexy.


  • Uniquebreeze

    The chinese laundry looks the most substantial as a knock off. I posted my prior comment on the wrong post. Oh the joy!!! oh well…lol
