Remember the red patent Valentino peep toes that were one of the very first shoes to be featured here at Shoeperwoman? I loved them, and it looks like Paris Hilton did too: the shoes on the right of the picture above are from her line, and although they’re d’orsay pumps rather than slingbacks, everything else is almost identical.
Now, I’m in two minds about this. On the one hand, these are a pretty blatant copy, and it leaves a nasty taste in my mouth to think of Paris (or rather, her designers) so shamelessly ripping off someone else’s design like this. On the other hand, and playing devil’s advocate here, they are beautiful shoes, at $93, they’re a whole lot cheaper than the designer version, and I don’t think Valentino can claim to have “invented” the concept of bow-fronted peep toe shoes. What do you think of knockoffs like this?
