Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition Crystal Strap Sandals

I loved Giuseppe Zanotti‘s Special Edition platforms sandals right from the start when I first spotted them on Heidi Klum’s feet back in April. They are so fierce & so incredibly high (I probably couldn’t even walk in these mega platforms, but still). These are truly some special heels! They originally retailed for $1.385 in black or gold. The gold version has since sold out, but the black one is now on sale for 30% less.
