Fraud Squad: peep toe shoes from Versace, Forever 21 and ASOS

Versace_knockoffs_2

Even without our helpful annotations, there would be absolutely no prizes for spotting the designer shoe out of this little bunch. The Versace shoes stick out like Britney at last year’s VMAs, and not just because they’re gold and shiny, either. The Versaces, of course, were the original manifestation of this particular style, and we think they were the best, too. Still, $660 is a lot of money, and you’d be lucky to find these in stock now anyway, so Forever 21 and ASOS have jumped in to make sure we don’t have to go without. Very chivalrous of them, we’re sure.

The Forever 21 shoes are the cheapest, at $32.80 and also come in, er, white patent leather. ASOS, meanwhile, as selling their versions in black or red, for $93.

Which pair would you buy, if any?

    I like the black one best as well. I think it’s the buckle detail.

    Oh man. Of course, I like the Versace’s best, but the price just stings. But, I’ve also learned my lesson buying cheap heels, and I have the 5 year old scars to remind me. I think the ASOS in black would be a fine balance.

    Hate all of them, but think that the Versace ones are the least offensive in their hideousness.

    I can’t wear heels so this would be a hypothetical questions… the Versace – the shoe has a sexy shape and I love love love that colour!
    But, having said that I’d probably have to sell ALL of my possessions and/or live off lentils for the forseeable future if I did buy them!
