Real v. Steal: Spike Loafers

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Do you remember me telling you how much I wanted a pair of spiked loafers a couple weeks ago, in my Fall Must-Haves post? Well, it inspired me to find today's Real v. Steal. It's always easy to find an expensive pair of shoes, even these handmade leather loafers. I'm not sure why, but I feel like Google thinks I must want the most expensive version of things. However, using my magical powers of thrift, I was able to find and even cuter pair of spiked loafers for a fraction of the cost. No, they're not handmade from lambskin, but they are much more economical, and dare I say more stylish? You can find the "Real" version at Liqui Work and the "Steal" is from Zoo Shoo.

What are your thoughts? Would you spend over 400 dollars on a pair of trendy flats?

No, definitely not because I'm not really a flats kind of gal! LOL. But I do love the spikes. They may be good if you ever get attacked in a dark alley. One swift kick might be all it takes. :) <3

No, definitely not!
I don't think they look better than the cheaper ones.
And I dont have 400$.

There's no way I'd spend that much money on shoes! So it's awesome that you found a very cute, much more affordable version :)
