Real vs. Steal – Tom Ford Lace-Up Platform Sandals

It was only recently that we have written about how lace up heels have been quite the trend this year. And just when I was about to let this one go and slowly started concentrating on fall footwear, I accidentally came across this laced up beauty by Tom Ford and it was over. What can I say? I am majorly obsessed! The corset-like lace up front silhouette is incredibly sexy, don’t you agree? You know what else is incredible? The astronomical price tag of $1.250 (which, admittedly, is rather on the cheaper side for Tom Ford shoes though).

Jeffrey Campbell “Enable” Lace-Up High Heel Sandals

Since there’s no way I could afford the Tom Ford heels above, I have to turn to the usual suspects when it comes to designer inspired shoes. And in this case it’s Jeffrey Campbell who delivers. I think it is the first time JC doing Tom Ford, but I’m liking what I see so far! “Enable” is Campbell’s homage to Tom Ford’s sexy lace up high heels. The overall design is very similar to Ford’s, I just wish the heel on the JC version were a bit skinnier. But oh well, you can’t have it all I guess.
