True confession: I have been sweatin’ these insanely hot L.A.M.B. platforms for a while. They meet all the V-requisites: part gladiatress, part S&M mistress; kind of sexy but kind of scary; superhigh and superfly—I don’t think superkawaii can apply because these babies have bad girl written all over them. That Gwen, she can make music, babies, and a killer pair of shoes—this pair is Zantastic!

Type Z “Cyke” Platform Sandals

UPDATE (09/08/2010): Although these platform sandals have a few differences (cork platform, red stitching), it’s still more than clear where Type Z got their inspiration from for these. Available in black or brown.

Michael Antonio “Teeter” Platform Sandals

As much as I worship the L.A.M.B. Zan, three bills is a bit steep for an Imelda-in-the-making like me. At the rate I buy shoes, that would quickly add up to $1,500 or so every couple months. And that’s a reality I’m not prepared to deal with at this point. A better reality is the “Teeter” by Michael Antonio. All the style of the Zan, for a whopping $39.76. You know what that means, don’t you? That’s $340 left for…you guessed it, honey…more shoes.

  • I own the LAMB ones and they are SOOOOO high!! I can only wear them for a few hours. Maybe the others are lower in height as well as price?

  • Shoe Girl…oh, you lucky thing! What size do you wear? Since they’re painfully high, you can give them to me!

  • Hi Celine (aka ShoeGirl)! Thank you for your comment here on InTheirCloset.com. I have your blog in my feedreader and am just envious of all your gorgeous shoes! Lucky thing indeed. 🙂

    I just compared both versions from the side and Michael Antonio’s steal version is definitely feet-friendlier (still pretty high though!). But the L.A.M.B.s — OMG! These are insanely high, really realized it when I took a look from the sideview. I think the best I could do in these are a couple of minutes… hehe… crazy! 🙂
