Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti E20343 High Platform Bow Sandals

by Roseanne on January 16, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on January 16, 2014. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Ever have those days when you’re feeling blue and need a serious lift? Well, metaphorically speaking these Platform Bow Sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti may just be your go-to shoe. First off, a) they are a vibrant blue color, b) they have a soaring heel and c) they’re gorgeous! Though one might possibly break an ankle trying to walk in them, the mega-boost of height is insured. The bow and ankle strap add femininity and vintage-like appearance which is a contributing factor to the bold exterior. As usual, the price is severely expensive, but that indicates the steal is awaiting you below!

Liliana Paulette-3 Ankle Strap Sandals

UPDATE (06/15/2012): Found a second Zanotti look-a-like. These high heel sandals by Liliana have a satin-like upper instead of suede like the originals, but otherwise they’re almost spot-on and come with a very budget-friendly price tag of less than $40!

Luichiny “Rest Up” Bow Platform Sandals

Luichiny seals the deal for me. Just look, the difference is barely discernible unless you are a guru at spotting the “imitation” shoe. The color is just as vibrant, the bow is slightly smaller, and the ankle strap seems to be in place. The most important factor is that the grand heel is still a focal point, which I absolutely adore. Available in red, pink, black, and cream faux suede, there is a variety of colors to choose from.
