If you loved Carvela’s ‘Assemble’ pumps from earlier this year, I’m going to take a wild guess that you’ll also love these ‘Ravesh’ pumps from the Steve by Steve Madden line. Because, well, colour aside, they’re pretty much identical, aren’t they?
When brands from roughly the same price-point release similar (or identical) styles, it tends to be a case both brands buying the same shoe from the original manufacturer, rather than one copying the other, although, I have to be honest, when Steve Madden is involved, I tend to always suspect the latter. Whatever the case here, though (And lest we forget, they’re both based on a Valentino design, so the argument is probably academic), the fact remains that the Assemble pumps are getting harder and harder to track down these days, so if you’re still looking for them, these could be the answer. So far they only seem to be available in the cream version shown above, and a coral leather, but Steve Madden does tend to release shoes in multiple colours, so it could be worth keeping an eye out to see if any others are released.
These are available at Bloomingdales, where they’re £118.36.
