Can You Tell The Difference Between These £18 Heels And An £830 Gianvito Rossi Pair?




EVERYBODY wears shoes, from work boots to high heels or flip flops and slippers around the house.

A well-made pair of designer shoes can cost thousands with some labels, such as Gianvito Rossi, seeming out of reach without applying for a loan.

The shoe on the left is the pricey designer heel

But without shelling out an eye-watering amount, you can rock a nearly identical pair of the label’s stiletto ankle sock boots, which cost £830 including tax.

Online retailer EGO sells a dupe pair for £17.49, down from £34.99.

In classic black, they’re guaranteed to go with nearly every outfit.

But with one costing hundreds less than the other, you’ll have some cash left over to buy a whole new wardrobe to pair them with.

The bottom shoe is the Gucci number

And with summer on the way if something breathable is more your style, you may fancy a pair of Gucci’s Princetown metallic leather slippers.

But with a £535 price tag, if you’re willing to compromise these pair from online shop WithChic are a bargain at £26.72, down from £31.36, and even feature the same gold chain detail.
