Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti E96125 Platform Pumps

by Irina on December 25, 2009

Most people either hate or love cork shoes. I belong to the latter – most probably because my mom used to have a pile of 70’s style cork wedges in her closet with which I used to play dress-up with when I was little, so I guess I am a bit biased here. Giuseppe Zanotti seems to be on the cork-loving side as well since he designed a bunch of cork platform heels last spring just like these beautiful black patent platform pumps. Simple yet intriguing.

Jessica Simpson “Taneala” Platform Pumps

If you can’t afford the real deal, these platform pumps by Jessica Simpson are an excellent and almost identical alternative. Amazon is selling these in an array of different colors including a gorgeous red patent as well as gold, animal and zebra print.

Restricted “Wildcard” Platform Pumps

These platform pumps by Restricted are also a great and budget-friendly alternative if you want Giuseppe Zanotti 4 less. They aren’t patent and the cork platform is significantly lower than on the originals, but overall they’re still a good match I think. Available in black, tan, yellow and green.
