Real vs. Steal – Walter Steiger Oscar Ankle Boots

If you consider yourself to be a shoe expert the name Walter Steiger should instantly bring curved heels to your mind as this is Steiger’s signature heel design. Now I understand that a heel curved like this might look a bit strange to some of you; implying the not so desirable impression that it is bending under the sheer weight of the wearer. But looking at how fab these suede booties look on Lindsay Lohan makes me totally forget about this possible conclusion. Such a simple design yet the heel makes these ankle boots stand out.

Nine West “Highstakes” Curved Heel Platform Booties

UPDATE (07/08/2012): And here’s another Walter Steiger inspired ankle boot. The curved heel is definitely less extreme here on these Nine West booties but you still get where the inspiration for these came from.

Topshop “PISA” Banana Heeled Platform Chelsea Boots

If you like the look of the Oscar booties but don’t have the $$$ to support your love for designer heels then how about going for these banana-heeled Topshop booties instead? Obviously heavily inspired by Walter Steiger these differ by having a thicker heel which is slightly more sublty curved. Otherwise a total dupe and so much cheaper, too!
