I'm sorry, those shoes^^ (the Charles Alberts) are hideous. Sure, they're (faux) cork and (PVC) patent, but simply cork and patent does not = Bruges. Sure, they may be cheap, but the proportions are so off! The platform is way too thin at the tip of the shoe, and extends too far past the ball of the foot towards the arch, the vamp is waaay too high, the heel is too thick.
Sorry, I just had to rant there...it's just so obvious that they're just trying to make money off this Bruges trend, but they didn't care enough to do a half-decent knock off. If you really want shoes that are replicas of the Bruges, invest in some Jessica Simpsons, or better yet, a pair of Oh Deer Garbos.
I apologize if I offended anyone here who may have bought the Charles Alberts.

Sorry, to be off topic and maybe this should be in a different thread, but does anyone know where Steve Madden Maritime espadrilles in black are available? Also, I live in Canada so maybe somewhere that I can buy from would be great too?

IMO, Madden and Bebe do the best impressions of CLs. The others dont have the same shape and tend to look way chunky.

I agree with most of you, the red sole is way too much.

I still like my Oh Deer Marilyns even with the red sole. And I don't think they are too chunky although I have never seen the CLs irl to compare. They look like the JS Barbs.

I own the Oh Deer Garbos & love them as well. I don't think they look too much like the JS Barb though, I've tried on both & the the Bard isn't as narrow especially at the tip. I still love 'em just the same!

Ya, I've gone to the Steve madden website but they're sold out of black in size 7. It's kinda hard cuz we don't have Steve madden stores in Vancouver or any other dept. store that sells them.

I see in the Christina A. thread that picture of her and Vanessa Minnillo, Vanessa is wearing the Steve Madden Glamors. They don't have the red sole so that's what gave it away for me.

They look really good! I have to start saving!

which are fabulous and sexy and compliment-getters and kinda comfy for 4-inchers, but...

++Better knockoff -- the Bebe Katie, which I think is now only available on eBay:
(pic:eBay)
It's almost identical to the Rope Yoyos, being that they are 5" (which to me, sadly, is unrealistic. I like to be able to actually walk in my gorgeous shoes without looking like a fool) and avail. in patent. But if you can do 5" and are willing to pay $200, these are the ones for you!



I just wanted to tell anyone who might be interested in the bebe Katie shoe, but think the only option is overprice ebay auctions that there IS another option. Just call the bebe customer service 800 number, and ask about avails. in your size and the color you want. Then they will give you the phone number(s) of stores that have them. It might be a lot of calling, but they will ship them to you, and really the cost + shipping is cheaper than the outrageous ebay starting prices.
