Steve Madden is shameless.
Having been featured as “Shoe Deja Vu” here more times than I can remember, thanks to his habit of drawing copious amounts of “inspiration” from other designers, he’s gone ahead and created a shoe which he’s called “dejavu”. And, indeed, they’re well named, because they DO inspire a strong sense of deja vu, being identical in shape to Christian Louboutin’s ‘Daffodile’ platforms.
On this occasion, however, I can’t really blame ol’ Steve, because his is far from the only brand to have copied these shoes: almost every high street retailer has released their own version, and given that M. Louboutin can’t really claim to have invented the idea of gigantic platforms with skinny heels, I suppose it’s only to be expected that other designers will follow his lead here.
As for the shoes themselves, I still like the look of them… on other people. I know I wouldn’t be able to pull them off myself without ending up looking like a golf club, but if you can, you can click here to get these from Heels.com. where they’re $129.99.
