I think the cut-out wedge is a funny little trend. I wrote about some of the more expensive versions here. This shoe is more moderately priced.
And if you’re really thrifty, Target has a version.
I think this proves that manufacturers can do a look at all pricepoints without making offensively obvious copies of another designer’s work. The cut-out wedge idea is consistent from brand to brand, but the shoes are all different too. That’s refreshing.
Of course, I’m not going to get any of these because I have my Alaias from a couple of years ago.
As many fashion bloggers point out, it’s strange when the world catches up and the shoes that everyone thought were weird/ugly are suddenly “on trend.” But doesn’t make me like my shoes any less. Everything I liked about them originally is still there, plus I now get to annoy people who want them by telling them they’re too late. Mwah ha ha ha. MWAH HA HA HA!
