Comparison: Giuseppe Zanotti vs. My Rent

I stumbled upon this gorgeous, ridiculously sexy Giuseppe Zanotti sandal:

It’s so beautiful, I think I might cry.

Oh, wait, no. I’m crying because I just saw the price tag.

For those of you who like finding even more reasons to be sad on a Monday afternoon, here’s the damage:

Giuseppe Zanotti Platform Sandals – Alien High Heel

$1,095.00

Yowza.

Ok, well, let’s not freak out. As tempting as it may be to skip rent this month just so you can have your very own pair, don’t do it. Slowly back away from the credit card stash. It’s time to be creative!

I decided to spend my lunch break finding brands who made similar styles, and we are in luck! Check ’em out below:


PHYLICIA_RED_B_SIDE-detailPHYLICIA_BLACK_A_SIDE-hero-detail

Phylicia from Shoe Dazzle

$47.95

Now, that’s a lot more manageable. It has the similar laser cut-outs, and you can even get it in red. The heel on this one is slightly adventurous, but come on, we’re already past that.


VC

Criss-Cross Sandal from Victoria’s Secret

$78

If what you’re really after is a similar heel-height and color, this sandal is perfect. It’s a more simple shape with less cut-outs, but still very sexy. It also comes in a variety of colors.

27_didina_53_6

27_didina_97_6

Didina from Aldo Shoes

$79.98

This sandal brings back the laser cut-outs, slim heel, and bold color. I’m not sure how I feel about the red/fuchsia combo, but it is the most similar to the Giuseppe Zanotti. Plus, you can also get it in black!



CR

Caged Velvet Color Block Sandal from Charlotte Russe

$38.50 (plus an extra 20% off for a limited time)

For a much more affordable option, we’ve got this coral and turquoise combo. Although I have to say, for the same price, you can buy this style which I like a whole lot more:

CR-2

Strappy Color Block Platform Pump from Charlotte Russe

Our last two options are flats. It’s always good to have a flat option for those casual days.


ModCloth

Don’t Mind Atoll Sandal from ModCloth

$39.99

This carries that same cut-out, but as a flat sandal as a more comfortable and casual option.

VC-flat

Laser Cut Flat Sandal, Colin Stuart, from Victoria’s Secret

$58

Another laser-cut flat sandal. Available in pink and sand.

Hopefully you can find a pair that works for you. Be sure to send me llinks to any other similar styles you might find at michele.shoecloset@gmail.com!
