Tuesday Smackdown - McQueen Vs. Madden




Steve Madden - Seryna

I've been eyeballing this Steve Madden bootie for a while now. You know I've been wanting to shush up my shoe collection but I've yet to bite the bullet. However it was only recently that I discovered my favorite little borrower of designs just may have "borrowed" this design from Alexander McQueen which sort of makes me want them even more. LOL. Other than the fact that the leather on the McQueen looks utterly more sumptuous, I'm not really seeing much difference. Are you? Well except for the price.

No difference at all! Crazy. If you put the pictures next to each other without names, I wouldn't be able to tell. I am sure the McQueens are much more comfortable, though.

Love your blog! By the way, the Alexander McQueen bootie is called the "Faithful" bootie. It's currently sold out at the Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York McQueen boutiques. I believe they are still available online at Zappos, though... There are two differences in the shoes. The biggest one (besides the price) is the skull detail zipper on the McQueen, which gives so much to the bootie. And the leather used on the McQueens are more supple and comfy (as one can be with a 5 inch heel). The Madden's are what I call a near perfect knock-off. But I say, get the real thing on zappos. I grabbed the last 8.5 at Neiman's in LA. Good luck in finding them if you want the real ones!

Have you noticed how these shoes look like jackets with the zip and pointed collars.
