Real vs. Steal – Viktor & Rolf Split Shaft Platform Booties

by Roseanne on November 17, 2011

The Viktor & Rolf Split Shaft Platform Booties are an unconventional and unique version of the classical fall bootie. These shoes feature contrasted colors, red to black, as well as contrasted materials, suede to leather. The contrasting colors and textures complement one another, making the shoe immediately stand out. The red suede meets the black patent leather directly in the middle shoe where the split begins thus creating a focal point of any outfit. I find this unique style to be beautifully stitched and polished, but I’m not so sure that justifies the pricing of $990!

Dolce Vita “Jolie” Platform Boots

This season is all about color blocking and the Dolce Vita “Jolie” platform boots are the perfect archetype of this trend. This wonderful steal was found by one of our readers, Devon, who informed us about this great look-a-like. This bootie is very similar to the one by Viktor & Rolf, plus I love the additional colors available such as cognac and black. With these platform boots, you are bound to make a bold statement.
