Save or Splurge: flower-embellished shoes by Prada and Caparros

Prada_shoesOn our last Save or Splurge, Natasha commented that shoes are one of the few items she’d actually splurge on, and we’d have to concur with that one. Let’s put the theory to the test, though, with these flower-embellished shoes which come from Caparros (left) and Prada (right). No, they’re not identical, but they’re both dress shoes, both have similar little roses on the front, and if you wanted the style without the spend, the budget shoe could just be an option.

Is it, though? The “save” item has won almost every single one of these games so far, so let’s see if we can tempt you into splashing the cash with these beauties from Prada. Save or Splurge, folks: what’s it gonna be?

    Save!
    Not just because of the price: I like the “caparros” better… 🙂

    The flower on the Save option looks flat and lifeless, doesn’t it? I lovelovelove the color on the Prada shoes. Nothing in my closet goes with them, though, so I’d have to go shopping for a new dress as well. In for a penny, in for a pound I guess.

    Save… because I wouldn’t wear either of these.
    Even though I wouldn’t wear them though, I think the Prada pair are the more attractive of the two.

    Save! These aren’t my style in the first place, but if I had to choose, I like the cheap version better anyway.

    I like the “Save” better. But I like the flower on the “splurge” better. Hmmmm….
    The splurge is a weird color. I could only see wearing them on easter or as a bridesmaid.

    I would have to go with SAVE, but they’re both cute. 🙂

    Oh splurge all the way! I usually prefer the “save” option, but this time, the Pradas are just gorgeous! Plus, $450 isn’t really THAT much. I’ve been known to give that kind of money for shoes. Not too often, but still…

    I actually like the SAVE shoes better! The Prada shoes are just too much lavender and I like the shape of the black shoe (not a slingback fan).

    Splurge! Those Prada ones are beautiful!
    The cheaper ones look cheap and nasty.

    I actually don’t like either of them. So I’ll save for real and just not buy either.
