^ I was watching American idol the other night and saw those Bebe knock offs worn by one of the contestants. I made a screencap.

the heel on the jeffrey campbell shoes is lower than the heel on the bebe version. the shoe is VERY comfortable.

The Bebe ones went fast. I do not think they had the thong but maybe they did. They had the Gucci knockoffs I tink it was the Guccies (sp?) and they went in about 2 days.

*edited to remove ebay link

bergdorf goodman in ny still has the real balmains available if anyone's looking for them. i guess it's sold-out everywhere else? personally i'm already over this shoe and summer '09 hasn't even formally arrived yet......and to think i had caught on to the balmain hype and actually preordered a pair from luisa via roma months ago (then canceled!!....best decision ever). last time i was at bergdorfs the sales associates and one of the customers trying on the balmains all were talking about how overly trendy and cheap-looking the shoes were.

The best knockoffs are the ones at Zara, in my opinion.

Karma for you PrincessImp!! I just ordered the Bakers version (called Derek). I got the 2nd to last pair in my size. I have a fantastic cobbler and I'm going to ask him to add more crystals to the ankel strap.

daniellat: Oops! You're right, I meant another sandal that looks just like the Steve Madden. I don't think the toe looks at all weird in the multiple pics I've seen of them on the models. I can't wait to get mine!

IMO, the JC version doesn't look very close. It's got a very diff shape to it. I don't care for the SM ones at all. I don't think the Zara are nearly as good as the bebe though. What I like about the Bakers is the metal is silver, not gold. I think it sets the crystals off perfectly!
