Real vs. Steal – Givenchy Gladiator Open Toe Booties

by Irina on May 23, 2009

Last year these gladiator booties from Givenchy were all the rage on the red carpet. They took Hollywood by storm and sold out shortly after despite the hefty price tag of $995.

Celebrities Love Givenchy

As you can see many celebrities like Cassie, Charlize Theron, Heidi Montag and Lauren London all opted for Givenchy’s open toe booties.

Boutique 9 “Joleen” Gladiator Sandals

I have seen countless knockoffs of these Givenchy gladiator booties, but Boutique 9‘s “Joleen” sandals are probably the best of the bunch. They are not 100% the same, but you can clearly see the inspiration Boutique 9 has taken from the Givenchys. Not being the cheapest option, I’d still recommend these if you want the Givenchy look 4 less because they look well-made. Available colors are black, dove grey and tan.

If you prefer a knockoff that’s more similar to the original Givenchys, then you’ll probably like these knockoffs from Steve by Steve Madden better.
