Look for Less: Marni Platform Slingbacks



Marni at ShopStyle


You Want: Marni Platform suede slingbacks, $770 at Net-a-Porter. Two-tone suede uppers and a wooden cone heel made me shriek when I saw these (so did the price!).

Try This: "Tacee" multi-color slingback, $109.95 by Steve Madden. A little more cowgirl but no less fierce, these towering Steve Madden might give shoe lovers the designer fix for less.

Hmm... I actually like the original Marni one better. I like the suede and the cone heel.

The Steve Madden one is a miss for me though. The platform is too chunky and I'm not sure about the thin heel! They also look like they might be uncomfortable.

I'm with Jacki, the original definitely wins in this case. That tan leather is the deal breaker for me!

The Steve Madden loses the charm of the original Marni...

The marni heels are tasteful, while the steve madden ones look a lil trashy.

I would kill for those marni platforms
