Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti I90107 Gladiator Wedges

Update: This post has been updated on May 28, 2010. Scroll down to see the new add.

What happens when you cross two hot shoe trends like the wedge and the gladiator? You get the Giuseppe Zanotti I90107 Gladiator Wedges, of course. Giuseppe Zanotti has been cranking out some sensational shoes in the last couple of seasons, and although I’m not a huge fan of this look, this pair is very well done. They originally retailed for $705, and while they may be a couple hundred dollars less now, that’s still a considerable investment for a shoe that can only be worn during playtime, if you will.

Dollhouse “Bina” Wedge Sandals

UPDATE (05/28/2010): Another great and budget-friendly alternative to the original Zanottis are these wedge sandals by Dollhouse. Available in black or brown.

Kelsi Dagger “Juno” Wedge Sandals

Wanna try the gladiator wedge look this spring? You should. There’s nothing better than fashion experiments, I say, and I don’t think you can go wrong with the “Juno” Wedge by Kelsi Dagger. It’s practically a twin of the higher-priced Zanotti wedge, and at under $150, not so hard on the wallet. Plus, doesn’t it look comfy? We all need a break from our arch-busting stilettos at some point.

    ooo I find myself strangely attracted to these as well!

  • Tex…please let us know how they are if you get them!

  • Well, I ordered them … two months ago. I am still awaiting a little package from my lazy brother. He is holding my shoes hostage! 🙂

    Will make sure to link back to ITC when I post about them.


  • Oh, yes, please do! I’ll make sure to include a link to your blog post then, too, if you wish. Thanks, fashion butter!
