Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti E16099 Woven Raffia Wedges

by Roseanne on June 18, 2012

Update: This post has been updated on June 18, 2012. Scroll down to see the new add.

A unique twist to the mundane wedge is perfectly exhibited here by the ultimate heel mastermind, Giuseppe Zanotti, of course. Containing all of the staple Zanotti features such as a) a very high heel, b) signature wedge style, and c) glamour in every shape and form! What I love about this shoe is the versatility and ability to style these for day or evening wear. For instance, Kim K. looks absolutely fantastic in these wedges. Whether she wears them with a casual pair of distressed jeans or flowy dresses she looks very polished and chic. Though the must-haves are sold out, fear not because we found an identical pair to match these!

Steve Madden “KARDD” Ankle Strap Espadrille Wedges

To match the designer beauties above, Steve Madden has cultivated perfection in the form of these look-a-like “KARDD” wedges. Honestly, I can’t spot much of a difference; however, the price variation is extremely distinguishable. In terms of color, these are a bit darker than the Woven Raffia wedges and are also available in nude and leopard print. As for details, I absolutely love the zipper detail on the back! Don’t miss out on these beautiful shoes!
