Extreme Platforms

Update: This post has been updated on November 8, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

So I’m sure a lot of you will absolutely hate Stella McCartney‘s “Britt” flatforms. Not only because of their polarizing design, but also because Stella McCartney doesn’t use animal originated materials for her line yet still charges a whopping $995 for these faux leather brogues. However, I’m also quite positively sure that just as many will loooove Stella McCartney for the very same reasons. While I personally can’t picture myself rocking these babies, I do somehow see its androgynous appeal to others – viewed through the man repelling lens, of course. But the price though? Still a total turn-off!

Jeffrey Campbell “Berliner” Lace-Up Platform Oxfords

Enter Jeffrey Campbell. Crazy shoe designs have always been a part of the brand’s aesthetical vision, so I wasn’t the least surprised to find this Stella McCartney “Britt” dupe in JC’s repertoire. As usual, Jeffrey Campbell’s prices aren’t the easiest on a middle-class woman’s budget, but the design is spot-on and they’re still more than $800 cheaper than the pricey originals. Make sure to also check out JC’s “Zeppolels“; same design, but with a beautiful baby blue suede upper!

If you’re looking for something less expensive, you might wan to consider these oxford lace-up platforms by Dabagirl instead which are selling for $74.61 (sale price!). The design is very similar to Stella McCartney’s “Britt”, plus they’re also made of faux leather (if this is an important aspect for you). Available in black and nude.
