River Island & Carvela do Giuseppe Zanotti’s super high wedges

I’ve been admiring Giuseppe Zanotti’s high platform wedges from afar for many months now, but it seems that finally the UK high street has decided I could at last have the opportunity to own something similar. River Island’s black glitter wedges may not be in quite the same league as the Zanottis, but that super-high platform is very similar, and these have glitter all over the platform too, if that’s the kind of thing that floats your boat. Oh, and they’re much cheaper, too, at just £70.

While we’re on the subject of GZ lookie-likies, Monica wrote to me last week to draw my attention to Carvela’s ‘Grass’ wedges:

These also have the vertiginous platform, but come with a red suede upper, and a £140 price tag.

What does everyone think of these? As much as I love the extreme shape, I think I’d probably have a hard time working them into my wardrobe (and my Shoe Challenge!). What would you wear with them?
