Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti I90265 Studded Strappy Sandals

Update: This post has been updated on March 15, 2011. Scroll down to see the new add.

In keeping with the hugely popular gladiator theme that came about over a year ago, Giuseppe Zanotti has created the I90265 Studded Strappy sandal. I really do love this kind of shoe as a juxtaposition to a white summery dress or you can even go all out and pair them with a black mini. The studs add a little extra somethin’ if you want to wear them to a more dressy affair. I’m not too keen on the price, though, especially not for a sandal as trendy as this one.

Vince Camuto “Wendy” Sandals

Vince Camuto has come out with an exact copy of the Giuseppe Zanotti sandals – the “Wendy”. From the zipper back, to the crossed straps, to the square studs, to the buckle detailing, these are exactly like their big sister, but at a quarter of the price! These sandals are the perfect way to try out the trend without breaking the bank.
