If I know anything about shoes, it's that designers love knocking off other shoes. You know that scene in Devil Wears Prada about Cerulean? It's kind of like that in the shoe world (or so it seems). Some shoes, I'm okay with buying their lesser counter part. Other times, I want, nay, NEED to buy the original.
I'm thinking that since shoes are one area I excel at (No lie, friends email me asking where they can find a certain shoe, and I probably can find it within 15 minutes, I browse that much!) I would share my shoe finds and their impostors.
I'm starting off with Seychelles, which seem to be right on trend as many people are copying them left and right. In general, Seychelles are affordable coming in at roughly $100 (give or take a little) and in my shoe-world, that's not a bad deal.
|Seychelles Cream of the Crop (About $90)|
|Mossimo Othelia ($17.99)|
So I went to Kohls.
|So Cristal ($21.99)|
Sometimes though it's worth waiting, holding out and buying the real deal. The make it Seychelles here is:
|Seychelles Joan (now $70ish on Endless)|
The faker I found for these if you're interested are also by So and from Kohls:
|So Serina Wedge ($33.99)|
Some shoes are easier to find lower priced counterparts, just about anywhere will have black peep toe heels, or brown boots, but detailed shoes like these can be trickier to find. I just call it a challenge!
