Due to my rather petite frame and my admiration of high heels, I often look for a wedge heel in order to add height and at the same time provide comfort. The Giuseppe Zanotti I10061 Crystal Wedge Platform Sandals are the ultimate combination of style and support. They are ornamented with luminescent crystals, appearing of different hues at every angle. These shoes are extremely versatile as they can be worn with day or evening wear, and accessorized with some jewelry or serve to be a solitary statement piece. But for $1,174.50, they are rather unaffordable and truly a very large investment. Check out the alluring look-a-like below.

  • First: Love your blog!

    Ok, so, when I first saw these GZ a while back I almost died! They’re to die for. I recently saw that they’re being marked down on some sites. Of course they’re still not cheap enough to buy. I’m on a college student budget.
    The WP have the closes knock-offs I’ve seen. However, they are pretty dangerous. The sole is so small you can fall in every direction possible! They’re not uncomfortable they’re just scary to walk in. The stones are a little faded too. I also feel like the shoes is way over priced. Nonetheless, if you’re willing to take the risk WP is the best alternative.

    Love the navy option! It’s so difficult to find that color.
