Real vs. Steal – Miu Miu Crisscross Strappy Ankle-Wrap Sandals

These red strappy sandals were my last big Miu Miu shoe crush. It was so refreshing to see Miuccia Prada designing straightforward shoes oozing sexiness and pure glamour again as I was slowly beginning to get fed up with all the cutesy glitter shoes that have been so dominant the last few seasons at Miu Miu. I really wish I had the necessary pocket change to afford these fire-red stunners…

Adrienne Maloof “Ysabel” Satin Strappy Sandals

If you’re like me and can’t spend $800 on the real deal, here’s a fabulous Miu Miu look-a-like for a little over $100. As you can see it’s an almost identical copy of the Miu Mius with the only really noticeable differences being that this shoe here has a satin upper and a platform double as tall. Otherwise (shape, details, color) it’s a perfect match. My only complaint would have to be the shiny satin upper which cheapens the shoe in my opinion. I wish Celine (the designer of the Adrienne Maloof shoe line) would’ve kept the suede material. But oh well, one can’t have it all, right? And by the way, if you’re not a fan of red, these are also available in aqua satin.
