I love Giuseppe Zanotti shoes! No big surprise, I know. Which shoe fanatic wouldn’t love exquisite, premium Italian shoes? The sexy cutout sandals below belong to my absolute favorites, but since my budget won’t allow for such a pricey purchase, all I can do is dream. And start looking for some budget-friendly Zanotti look-a-likes.

ZiGiny “Diva” Heels

Update (08/06/2009): Found these awesome Giuseppe Zanotti knockoffs by ZiGiny today. Finally someone got the cut-outs right even though I wish they would’ve kept the silver heel like the originals. Available color options are black, cognac and brown.

Urban Vibe Strappy Heels

Update (08/06/2009): Another great Giuseppe Zanotti alternative I found on Wet Seal. Don’t these heels by Urban Vibe look just like the Zanottis? Almost identical and they even have the cute silver stiletto heel. Best thing is: they retail for very affordable $24.50.

Michael Antonio “Selma” Cutout Sandals

So after I published the Giuseppe Zanotti look-a-likes below a few hours earlier this day, I accidentally stumbled upon another Zanotti inspired pair. The “Selma” cutout sandals by Michael Antonio are almost spot-on. The only thing that differs is the heel which is black instead of silver. Not talking about the quality aspect of course. The cutout edges on these here don’t look perfect as well, but at least they are a lot better than on the Pierre Dumas version, no?

Pierre Dumas IDEAL-2 Cutout Sandals

These sandals by Pierre Dumas are almost identical and although the cutout edges look a little bit raw, I think they are still a good option if you are looking to save a huge amount of cash (more than 90% to be exact!). The sandals come in either black or tobacco and retail for $46.98. Snap them up while you can, I’m pretty sure they will sell out soon.
