I’ve been really loving Prada shoes as of late. Their footwear range for Spring and Fall 2009 was truly exceptional and just when I was starting to understand the appeal of Prada I was beyond disappointed to see lucite shoes return from fashion hell onto Prada’s Spring 2010 runway. Damn you, Miuccia Prada! I’m on a fashion rollercoaster with your fashion house. I do appreciate these studded t-strap sandals however also known as Ashley Olsen‘s studded obsession.

XOXO “Lola” T-Strap Sandals

UPDATE (04/04/2010): Stumbled upon another Prada knockoff by XOXO. The hardware is silver instead of gold and it’s missing a few details, but overall it’s a great steal version. Available in black, black patent, grey and natural.

Michael Antonio “Tiff” T-Strap Sandals

If you can’t afford the real deal, Michael Antonio has an amazingly identical alternative for a lot, lot less. His t-strap sandals look just like the studded Prada heels except these come without the steep designer price. Available in either black, red or purple.
