Splurge vs Steal – The Wedge Sneaker

I have been kicking myself  for some time now that I missed the opportunity to buy a pair of Isabel Marant sneakers.  Of course, the bright side is I’m $700 richer since the price tag is a bit steep.  My first reaction when I first laid eyes on the bulky “zapatos” was negative.  In fact, I thought they were hideous.  Well over time, these beauties started popping up everywhere I went… from bloggers’ feet, to celebrities to just random people in the street.  And that’s when it happened.  I went from repulsed to obsessed.  I had a chance to try a pair on in silver (read here) but they just weren’t for me.  Since they are sold out everywhere… and I mean EVERYWHERE, I may have to settle for something similar… although I am not a fan of knock-offs.  What do you think?  Wait till next year hoping Isabel Marant will re-release them or settle for a more cost-friendly version?
