The ‘Scarlett’ spiked sandals being offered by Sam Edelman immediately remind me of Ruthie Davis’ Spikette styles (and in a looser fashion, some of Louboutin’s & Rodarte’s past offerings). Let’s take a peek.
Sam Edelman ‘Scarlett’ peep toe sandal:
Also available in pewter grey at $200 via Piperlime.
You may remember Louboutin’s Clou Noeud with the girly bow on the toe & the all-over spikes….If not, here’s another peek:
Well, since these have been out for over a year, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that mainstream imitations are available at lower-end prices.
I love intricate or carved heel details on shoes. So, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that I’ve been pining over Casadei’s 2010 fall line of boots & pumps with their delightfully-geometric, devilishly high, drop-dead gorgeous heels.

I mean, look at these! What’s not to love?

While I don’t condone knock offs of designer’s original designs, I can understand that Brian Atwood’s Maniac (left) pumps aren’t exactly affordable for most gals and could cover part of this month’s rent. So, for those that have been requesting it, here’s a similar yet different shoe for you – the Chinese Laundry’s Whistle pump in an elongating patent nude color.
Brian Atwood Maniacs for $580 at Saks
Chinese Laundry’s Whistle pump in patent for $69.95 $38.95 (see deal tip below).
Tip: Get in on today’s Groupon Flash Sale. For $29, you get $60 to shop online at Chinese Laundry. Shipping is free for purchases over $100.
One of our readers is absolutely in love with Brian Atwood’s hidden platform pump (left) but not with the $580 price tag at Saks Fifth Avenue so she asked us to find a look-alike. We thought that Dolce Vita Women’s Madison Platform Pump (right) was a pretty good match. Like the Atwoods, the Madison pump is also 4 3/4 inches with a hidden platform and dare I say,the nude color actually looks better to me. Amazon is having a cyber sale right now so the Dolce Vita pumps are on sale for 70% off, at $47.98.
