Last year, visions of Jeffrey Campbell’s ‘Michelle’ shoe sent shoe-loving bloggers into a veritable swoon. Something about the frilly ruffles and that twisted unicorn heel effortlessly recalls fairy-tale dreams of girlhood; a time where you could be a tomboy one moment and an all-powerful queen the next.
So, who has copied this design?
First, Jeffrey Campbell has lifted his own unicorn-heel design and added a solid punk vibe:
Then, for the buyer on a budget, Wild Rose is offering the inevitable low-priced knockoff – in both a pastel inspired version as well as more literal JC copies.
At this under $30 price-point, don’t expect longevity; these are for those people who only wear unusual shoe styles for a season or two.
If you, however, know that you will love these for years instead of a single season, I recommend that you find a way to budget yourself into a pair of the Jeffrey Campbell originals.
