I never paid much attention to Prada shoes because they never seemed to be that noteworthy. For me, it was all about Miu Miu, Miuccia Prada’s younger contemporary line which seemed to always outshine her bigger sister in the footwear department – that was until now. I recently discovered some really neat Prada heels which I instantly loved. Take these studded platform slingbacks for example. I love the chunkiness of the platform & heel!

Steve Madden “CARMENAA” Studded Slingbacks

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.

If you like the Prada slingbacks, but can’t afford spending so much on shoes, Steve Madden has a great and almost identical knockoff version of the studded Pradas. They have the same stud details, the same shape and even the same chunky heel. The only noticeable difference (apart from the lower price) is that the Steve Madden slingbacks are suede. Hmmmm, I think I’m going to order a pair of these for myself.
