Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti E16136 Platform Peep Toe Wedges

by Irina on April 26, 2012

Update: This post has been updated on April 26, 2012. Scroll down to see the new add.

One of the most distinctive shoe styles of 2011 have been Giuseppe Zanotti‘s extreme wedge styles for me. I’ve loved them the second I saw them online. They do scare me a lil’ bit with their crazy 6 inch heel, but I still want them in my closet so badly. Not convinced yet? Check out the celebs letting their Zanottis do all the talking and I’m pretty sure they’ll land on your wish list, too.

UPDATE (10/20/2011): For all those interested in the highly-coveted Carvela wedges: they’re finally back in stock @ Kurt Geiger and they now also ship to Europe (£5-£10), the US (£10) & many other countries, too. Get your pair before they’re gone… again!

While these Carvela beauties are not available in turquoise (boo!), they do come in yet another showstopping color though – red! Everything about these wedges is spot-on, they’re almost 1:1 identical with the Giuseppe Zanotti wedges. Also available in black suede and gold glitter.
