Real vs. Steal – Givenchy Banded High Heel Sandals

These black strappy sandals by Givenchy are just kick-ass. I wouldn’t necessarily wear them with a knee-length dress like Julianne Moore did below (the upper ankle straps cut off at a rather unflattering point leaving her look sort of stumpy), but I’d totally rock these babies with leggings, jeans or a short skirt/mini dress.

Nine West Vintage America Collection “Garnish” Caged Sandals

UPDATE (04/12/2013): Almost three years after the last update, I have come across these Nine West heels which are an almost spot-on dupe of the Givenchy designer heel version. Available in either black, emerald, brown and cognac leather for $135.99 (sale price)!

UPDATE (04/11/2013): Also found these high heel sandals by ALDO which instantly reminded me of the Givenchys as well. $49.98 (sale price!) and also available in cognac.

Matiko “Mel” Open-Toe Sandals

UPDATE (05/26/2010): The Michael Antonio knockoffs didn’t get too many positive reviews, so if you love the Givenchy style and are willing to spend some cash on a high quality knockoff, try these sandals by Matiko. Available in black or brown.

Michael Antonio “Tazara” Strappy Sandals

If you’re digging the style, but frown upon paying the designer price (original retail price for the Givenchys was a whopping $1.150), leave it to Michael Antonio to satisfy your shoe needs while still staying on budget. Their “Tazara” strappy sandals are an almost identical copy of the banded Givenchy heels and they come in either black, tan, red or white. L.O.V.E.!
