Real vs. Steal – Miu Miu Studded Platform Clogs

You see I love Miu Miu. I just can’t help it. While I may not approve of every collection, I like that Miuccia Prada always puts you on the fence with her designs. You can tell she’s one of the few designers who REALLY think outside the box and who sometimes sacrifice aesthetics for the sake of creativity & uniqueness. This might not work out every time with me, but I do appreciate her contribution to the world of arts anyway. Today we’re talking clogs again. Le shoe du jour! They are everywhere now. The reintroduction of the wooden clog can be mainly attributed to Karl Lagerfeld who made the Dutch footwear look très avantgarde on Chanel’s Spring 2010 runway. However, personally I prefer Miu Miu’s more playful take on the classic clog. Unlike the Chanels, Miu Miu’s studded clogs are also quite reasonably priced at about $500 whereas Chanel’s version will run you in the thousands. Of course we understand that $500 can still be too expensive for a shoe you might want to hide in the darkest corner of your closet in a year from now.

Steve Madden “MELROW” Studded Clogs

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “SMSEP1” to get 15% off orders of $80+ or “SMSEP8” for 20% off orders of $125+ at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 09/30/2013. Some exclusions apply.

Now look at this! Steve Madden has finally caught up on the clog trend. First, he made an almost identical version of the Chanel clogs and now he’s presenting us his take on the studded slingback Miu Mius which he combined with the also big right now nude trend. Only downside? These are currently pre-order only and won’t ship until the end of May. Boo! I still wouldn’t wait too long if you dig the clog trend because a) I’m fairly sure these are going to sell out pretty quickly and b) they have this 30% OFF promotion going on right now which will save you a big chunk of cash and it could expire any day, so if you like these, head over to the site and grab ’em now! Btw, check out Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere rocking these Miu Miu look-a-likes (so fab!).

    I am OBSESSED with these platforms. Been looking EVERYWHERE for them. I found them in a Steve Madden store today in Denver!!!!!! They just received a new shipment and are shipping them to me!!!! I ordered the nude color and brown. SOOOOOOO excited

    Anyone looking for them better call quick……303-331-8358

  • ADORE these studded clogs! Great price too. You’re awesome!

  • Rachelle, you’re so lucky to get your hands on these clogs so early. However, I am currently debating wether I’d sacrifice the promo discount of 30% to wear them 1 1/2 months earlier?!?! Hmmmmm, no decision yet.

    Holly, thank you for your sweet words. I knew people were going to love these. So glad! Hope to see you around here often. Oh, nice shoe blog by the way. 🙂

  • Rachelle

    Irina, Would love to get the discount, but there is NOOOO way I could wait 6 more weeks for them, had to have them NOW!! SO excited to get them this week 🙂

  • Alright, I get it, girl. Tell us how they turn out when you get them. So curious! 🙂

  • Hunny Boom

    I have been told I’m a pretty fashion savvy chick (toot-toot), and I just don’t get how these shoes are attractive in any way. IMHO nothing about them is feminine or sexy. The most I’d do is wear them to garden in, and I don’t even garden lol.

  • Those are so cute!!
