Real vs. Steal – Maison Martin Margiela Covered Heel Wedge Booties

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 28, 2010. Scroll down to see the new adds.

The Spring 2008 wedge heel booties by Maison Martin Margiela below reminded me of legwarmers when I first saw them. I would have never thought they’d look so cute when put on until I saw Rachel Bilson flaunting her nude pair.

Ash Opium Wedge Ankle Booties

If you live in the UK (or Europe) and want to get your Maison Martin Margiela fix 4 less, try these ankle boots by Ash. Yes, they vary slightly as the ankle boot is higher and open in the back, but they’re still a good alternative compared to the originals. Currently on sale for £15 (£135).

Ash “Soho” Collared Sandals

Turns out Ash has not only one but two Margiela knockoff versions on the market. The “Soho” sandals look more like the real deal, but are only available in a size 38 (US 8).

    I just want to say, I stumbled upon your website while searching for a picture of a celebrity in a pair of gladiator heels that I own, and I absolutely love it here! How do you do it? Search for the best knockoffs, I mean, lol. You are amazing, thank you so much! I love, love, love your website and from now on I will check it everyday like I do my email, facebook and twitter. :)

    Thanks for the compliment, sweetheart! Finding knockoffs isn’t that hard when you know where to look actually. I am a total shoe addict, so browsing the online shops is a daily routine for me and this is how I discover most of them. Maybe this is my talent? Who knows. It’s always nice to hear that other people are enjoying my finds and find it useful :)

    I was just scrolling through gojane.com and found a pair of shoes that look like they were inspired by these same shoes and selling for a whopping $17.90:

    Thought I’d send ‘em your way!

    I must agree, you have awesome shoe finding skills. I love shoes too and this blog is part of that addiction, lol. So fab, as usual. I’m sad the Bert shoes are sold out in my size!

    Great find, ristee! Thanks so much for telling us.
