Real vs. Steal – Gucci Huston Mary Jane Platform Suede Pumps

by Roseanne on June 19, 2013

The Gucci Huston Mary Jane Plaform Suede Pumps are a fusion of the classic Mary Jane silhouette with a 1970s take, significant both to modern elegance and the disco fashion. The soaring heel draws attention as it contradicts with the mellowness and sweetness of a Mary Jane styled shoe. As these pumps come in several hues, I have to say that every color is uniquely presented bringing a sense of disco-like glamour to the table. I admire the the plum purple hue with the deep gold piping as it is sophisticated yet retro-chic. These pumps are essentially iconic and representative of 1970s trends which are resurfacing into the modern fashion world.

bebe “Nadia” Metallic Trim Velvet Sandals

The bebe Nadia Metallic Trim Velvet Sandal has a luxurious appeal by which it features a staggering platform heel and metallic toned velvet and piping. These sandals resemble the Gucci heels above, and really bring on the nostalgic Hollywood glamour guise that we all crave. I am fond of the peep-toe element as it compliments both cocktail attire and can be dressed down for more casual wear. These are way more affordable than the Gucci Huston Mary Jane Pumps, plus are available in dark red, black, and taupe.

    I think the Gucci version is pretty. The bebe version… um… it doesn’t really strike me. I see the resemblance but something got lost… probably the shape…

    I love heels and the shoes are lovely but my feet hurt just looking at them…

    I found these shoes-http://www.urbanog.com/Qupid-Tatum-07-Almond-Toe-Pump_112_17210.html-that look pretty similar to the Huston.

  • @Jen & Sonja: Thank you for sharing your finds! Updated the post to reflect the Qupid alternative.
