Déja vu? Most definitely!

Does this shoe look familiar? It should!


$89.95 Nine West Olavera

Just like I did, you Glam Gals immediately thought, "DAMN!" Right?


$695 Gucci Sevigny Ankle Strap Sandal


We were all a-dither over the ad and the shoe 3 months ago. Inspired vs. knock-off. This again treads the line, don't you think?

That strap across the heel (the main difference between the shoes) makes the Gucci that much trendier and more chic. But for the large price gap, I think I'd force myself- in the name of good personal finance- to buy the Nine West (unless of course they hurt too much and are completely uncomfortable...)

Yikes; a seemingly blatant design copy.

Although the price is a little more purse friendly...

It's a pretty clear knockoff, that's for sure.

I tag you!!

Knock off, most definately, but having fondled the Gucci and the Nine West, I'd definitely want the Gucci (and I love Nine West but the Guccis appeared better made)

I agree -- the quality difference was obvious and the Gucci heel is higher and the whole shoe looks better. The old adage, "you get what you pay for," holds true.

On the other hand, you can get 8 pairs of the 9West for the price of 1 Gucci. So to each her own, I s'pose :)
