Alexander McQueen vs Steve Madden: Zipper Peep-Toe Booties

8/22/2009 12:51:00 PM Posted by Christina

So, I am preparing for my trip to NY next month for Fashion Week! I'm so excited! This will be my first time being there during this time, and attending a few shows!

Anyway, I am looking for some new peep-toe booties (because my Aldos are just about done) and I ran across these Steve Madden zipper peep-toe booties, only to realize they are a spitting image of the Alexander McQueens!

I'm torn. I love the shoe, but cannot afford the originals for over $1,000. On the other hand, is it tacky to wear an exact replica of the real thing? Hmmm....

What do you think?

    I would get the Steve Maddens. Who is going to know? As far as the public is concerned, you spent $1000 on some awesome shoes, not $100.

    You're so right. As long as I like them and they practical for my wardrobe, it doesn't matter. Thanks!
