Real vs. Steal – Gucci Venus Front-Zip Platform Sandals

by Vahni on October 29, 2010

Really, what is there to say about shoes like the Venus Front-Zip Platform Sandals by Gucci? Sex on a stiletto? A platform of perverse perfection? A picture—or a pair—is worth a thousand words…and a not far off a thousand bucks, either. They are exquisite. And expensive. Gah.

Chinese Laundry “Momento” Platform Sandals

If you, like me, regularly lust Gucci but lack the funds necessary to stockpile this iconic brand, at least you can look like a Gucci queen from the ankle down, thanks to Chinese Laundry. The “Momento” Platform Sandals are virtually the same as Gucci’s Venus — complete with a zipper up the front, but with plenty of bills left for your next acquisition. Available in black and cognac.

    Hmm, I actually prefer Chinese Laundry’s take on these shoes! I think it’s the platform’s different cut that I love… Great find! I want them!!
