Lusted After the $1300 Iris Van Herpen X United Nude ‘Iris’ Shoes?

It’s amazing what affordable shoe brands can do now, like take the one-of-a-kind, limited edition and very expensive Iris Van Herpen X United Nude ‘Iris’ shoe and turn it into something more attainable.

If you lusted after that shoe after seeing it on Kim Kardashian and fashion blogger Tess Pare-Mayer but dismissed it after seeing its $1,300 price tag, then you’ll love this lookalike from Bettie Page. Meet the ‘Zilla’, the 90% less expensive version of the Iris Van Herpen X United Nude ‘Iris’ shoe:

Bettie Page by Ellie Shoes ‘Zilla’ slashed and twisted platform booties, $115.95

Having the original shoe is always nice and all but this is one of those times when I like the knockoff better. I like how the ‘Zilla’ has the twisted straps just going down the middle instead of curving towards the inside toe. I like how it sits lower at the ankle so it doesn’t cut off so much height. I like how it’s a little less clunky and I even like the leopard print on the bottom of the sole.

I especially like the price tag — $115.95 at Shoebuy which can go lower if you wait for their sales which happen almost every weekend. You can also shop for these shoes at NastyGal.

Do you think these shoes are a great look-for-less version or do you think these are a total ripoff of an original and exclusive design?
