Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti E20306 Colorblock Suede Platform Sandals

by Juliana on August 11, 2012

One for the money, two for the show…” – Let’s just get right down to it; these platform sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti are simply divine. And while this may not be the pair The King sang about in homage to his favorite “blue suede shoes“, they as may as well be since they are just as big of a signature item as the legendary ones. But major shoe statements aside, think about how often will you wear these before you spend a small fortune. Unless your entire wardrobe palette works with them, you may want to consider a less expensive option like the ones we found below.

ShoeMint “Stella” Caged Platform Sandals

The look-for-less option by ShoeMint, while almost identical in style, doesn’t seem to be available in the original phosphorescent blue shade, but they certainly have exactly the same cool futuristic cutout design and high-end designer look. They are also just as flattering as the original. Play it safe and wear them with neutrals like Khloe Kardashian for just a pop of color, or be a little more daring and match them to a printed cocktail dress similar to Tamara Ecclestone’s outfit. Or, take it a different route all together and wear them with a full tulle skirt and tank for a modern and flirty take on the classic ballerina.

Wild Rose Gaira-02 Two Tone Cut Out Heels

However, if the color was what really drew you to the original pair, this option by Wild Rose is as close a match as you can get for the price. They may not be as sturdy as the others, but from far away they will definitely do the trick. Wear this pretty teal shade with some navy cropped pants and a white blouse for an instant update, or better yet, keep them in your work bag for a quick change before happy hour. Also check out the other available color combinations including ruby red and tangerine, all made with vegan leather!

Shoe Republic “Session” Two Tone Platform Sandals

Shoe Republic has yet another great pair, for an incredibly good price. They have the same high-end style and available in yet more colors in case you haven’t been able to find the ones you love. This burnt orange looks beautiful with dark denim; white or camel with brown accessories, just think how cute they’ll look with your tan trench coat! Like the pair above, these are also made with animal-friendly materials and the heel is just a fraction shorter (which could make them a tad more comfortable, too). Other color combinations available are black/gray and tan/orange.

    Hi Juliana, I am a big fan of your articles. I Love the teal shade shoes and the orange. Thanks for the “hint” of what cloth I can wear them.

  • Eva

    I love the original ones and of course I can’t afford them. Thank you for finding cheaper versions of them <3
