Princess: I will def post pics!!

daniellat: I agree. I think bebe is the closest and did the best in keeping the shape and dimensions spot on. The ones from Bakers have a 4 1/2 inch heel vs 5 on the auth, but I think I'll be ok with that. 4 1/2 is plenty. I'm fairly tall to start with. Anyway, I can't believe the Zaras went for $900!! Someone smart got rich off those!! I just don't understand paying $900 for KOs when the auth is $1500!?!?

SohoChic1: Yay!! You paid $90 with shipping, right? I paid $79+shipping for mine. I also dislike that bebe added the gold studs. It throws off the look IMO. Also, the bebes have a platform and the auth don't so they def aren't super close to auth. The Bakers version has the correct shape (and no platform), the correct toe loop and the rounded toe. They also have silver studs. I'm really happy with snagging a pair and for 1/2 the price of the bebe and Zara versions (and don't even get me started on the Steve Madden or Aldo versions, blech)!!!

Thanks for the pics of your gorgeous shoes!! Rockin' pedicure btw!!

I love the shoes but im so fed up with them. Too many knockoffs on ebay already so you can be bored just from looking at them
