Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti I26111 Suede Peep Toe Exaggerated Platform Pumps

by Roseanne on March 15, 2014

Update: This post has been updated on March 15, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Here we have another pair of the typically OTT Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. The silhouette is all very similar with the sky-high towering heel and some sort of exaggerated design. As usual, my initial liking towards Giuseppe Zanotti footwear always arises some mixed feelings, which later turn into a slight footwear obsession. Undeniably, these exaggerated peep-toe platform pumps are a form of creative vision. Likewise, they look amazing and really elongate one’s legs for a super flattering finish. I really love how Gabrielle Union paired these pumps with a simple yet elegant red dress.

Sam Edelman “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps

Although Zanotti is known for his innovative style, Sam Edelman also brings an inventive touch in the footwear industry. Greatly mimicking the designer deal above, these “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps have a very similar shape and structure. And though the general motif is very comparable, the price tag makes a huge difference! These are not only futuristically beautiful, but also quite affordably priced at $130! Aside from this bright purple version pictured below, they are available in black suede as well.
