Name That Knock-Off: Triangle Heel Patent Peep-Toe

And now for a new installment on The Budget Babe we like to call, "Name that knock-off"! All you have to do is guess which designer got knocked off. There is no prize this time around besides the satisfaction of knowing that you have a keen eye for fashion. So here goes: Who did Forever 21 copy with their cream patent peeptoe shoe featuring a triangular heel?

Give up?

As it turns out, Forever 21 shamelessly plucked their shoe design straight from the Chloé Spring 2008 runway. So now that we know where the idea came from, what do you think? Would you wear this avant-garde shoe?

Forever 21 CZ-3 Patent Peeptoe, also available in black, $27.80

This shoe isn't too funky for me. I'd wear them if I had long legs and the right outfit!

I don't think I would--these shoes remind me of neapolitan ice cream, however those inverted Marc Jacobs heels from some season ago were amazing. I wish those would have gotten knocked-off. cough.

They copied the Chloe patent leather peep-toe slingback booties. I like the Chloe better because it's white, but the black version from Forever 21 is just as good as the one from Chloe IMO
