The Look for Less: Jimmy Choo Snake Wedge Sandal

Jimmy Choo at ShopStyle

Now that the Louboutin frenzy over at Gilt has subsided, let's turn our attention to another coveted designer shoe brand, Jimmy Choo. These Jimmy Choo 'Connor Elaphe' Snake Wedge Sandals would be the perfect neutral shoe for summer, if they didn't cost $695 at Net-a-Porter...


...ahh, much better! The Mossimo 'Paz' Faux-Snake Wedge is a fabulous, inexpensive alternative that costs just $29.99 at I saw these in person and they look splendid, plus they were on sale at my local store for $21.99.

Wet Seal at ShopStyle

...and here's another option, which features a higher, chunkier wedge. Very hot. Pick up this Snake Print Wedge at Wet Seal for just $24.50.

I prefer the Mossimo sandal to the Jimmy Choo. It has a gladiator style that makes it younger looking than the $700 counterpart. Great find!!

I want that Mossimo version! Just what I'm looking for, though I do wish the heel was a bit lower like the Choos (though I'm probably in the minority for thinking that, hee hee).

I have the Mossimo sandals - wore them all over Buenos Aires last month. Very comfortable and look really cute.

I'm a fan of the first two; the third pair reminds me of these platform wedges I used to wear in the 90s lol

I bought the Mossimos last month. Love them! I just can't wait for the weather to warm up here in NJ...
