Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti I26115 Sculpted Ankle Strap Wedges

Update: This post has been updated on November 14, 2012. Scroll down to see the new add.

If you are looking for a way to liven up your fall/winter wardrobe, check out these platform pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti. They are the new Mary Jane and will look sensational with an A-line dress or pencil skirt and are easily transferable in colder weather with a pair of opaque tights. While a tad overpriced considering they aren’t terribly practical, you can be sure these are balanced and constructed to perfection. But if you’re like me and just want these for fun, check out some great and more affordable options below.

Steve Madden “GRAVITYY” Suede Ankle Strap Wedges

This first style comes from one of our favorite look-for-less brands, Steve Madden. The great thing about these is that the brand has a reputation for well-made shoes that are fairly comfortable. They also come in a variety of colors and even though the cantilever effect isn’t as severe as the original, you’ll be thankful for the extra balance. I’d choose a pair in yellow to wear with my dark winter palette of black and grey and rock some textured tights for a little artsy flair.

Dollhouse “Confession” Ankle Strap Wedges

The second style by Dollhouse is less than half the price of the pair above and also available in some very fun colors. I personally haven’t worn their shoes before, but if you aren’t necessarily worrying about comfort and just want to wear these out to dinner and such, then it’s a great way to achieve the same look for a low price. Try the blue pair with some chrome and black accessories for a futuristic look, and you’ll have a very on-trend outfit for just a small investment.
