Real vs. Steal – Maison Martin Margiela x H&M Plexi Wedge Booties

by Irina on February 14, 2013

Designer capsule collections never really bothered me, mostly because I found most items to be way too overpriced and . Maison Martin Margiela x H&M was no different for me. I know many consider Margiela to be a fashion visionary, but I finnd most of his clothes simply unwearable. It’s just not my style. However, I always used to have a soft spot for his shoe line and the shoes from Margiela’s capsule collection for H&M really resonated with me. My absolute favorite style were the wedge booties with the lucite wedge heel which shouldn’t come as a surprise since I have made a very similar shoe style my “Heel of the Day“-pick back in September 2010. But $350 for a pair of H&M shoes? Uh, thank you, but no, thank you!

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “20LUCKYAPR” to get 20% OFF your order! Ends 04/30/13.

While I think $171.99 is still quite a lot of money for an H&M-quality item, these lucite heel wedge booties by Choies which look almost identical to the Margiela x H&M wedges are still about 50% cheaper and made of real leather, too, just like the real Margielas. Plus, you can save another 20% with the promo code above which cuts down the price to a reasonable $137.59 (the store offers free worldwide shipping, too). Now that’s a deal, right?
