Real vs. Steal – Zara Flat Jelly Sandals

Update: This post has been updated on February 16, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Chances are you’ve already seen these rhinestoned two-tone t-strap flats by Zara somewhere. Maybe you saw them on a style blog (or many, as I have) or maybe you spotted them on someone else’s feet out in the streets last summer; you might even have contemplated getting them yourself while perusing the Zara store for the latest fashion finds. I’m not sure whether Zara designed these with some other designer shoe in mind (not that I know of) since they like to “borrow” from the latest runway styles. Anyway, these t-strap flats became quite the hot seller and sold out at full-price in no time.

Bamboo Lynna 01 Rhinestone Studded Strappy Flats

Et voilà! Bamboo brings us a perfectly finde substitute in faux suede leather for under $12! Is that amazing or what? Love the sandals, love the price! I think I even prefer the Bamboo flats over the Zara version since I really don’t like having gummy plastic material cover my feet (even though the Zara sandals also don’t look quite like a jelly flat to me). Anyway, better get them now before these sell out as well and so you’re ready to rock a pair of super cute summer shoes when warmer weather comes around.

    Love the one from LuLu’s

  • Elisabetta Antonelli

    wow!

  • Jazz

    Yes, I was wondering about that when I saw these very same sandal under Bamboo brand. Bought the ZARA one last summer for 69.99€. Should I have waited? Lost 2 beads by now. They are lovely though. So who copy who? Maybe I’ll get one from Bamboo in another colour.

    Steve Madden was the first of its kind with an older edition over a year ago. I had bought mind from Loheman’s in Boca Raton, Florida while visiting friends and worn them every where in Miami. I would like to say that I started the trend because I had NEVER seen it on others before until just recently within the past year. I have gotten so many compliments on my shoes. Too bad their already worn down to the sole — literally — and I hope to find and buy and exact pair. HARD TO FIND SO FAR! : /
    I can send a picture by email.
