Topshop does Balenciaga

For those of you who oohhed and ahhed when spotting some killer Balenciaga booties on the likes of Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan, the oohing and aahing stops here. Topshop (about time) have done an "inspired" sandal on the shoes from Balenciaga's Spring 2008 collection. I'm suprised they made a sandal instead of a boot. Perhaps it's more wearable? If you're interested, they are priced at 35 pounds ($69.0690 USD) which seems pretty appealing as the orignal Balenciga ankle boot is is valued at $1500. Will you be buying a pair of Topshop's new sandals?

Hmmmm . . . your fashion radar is spot on, but I think I prefer the knee-high version.

those are so nice and reasonably priced, wow

I actually like these more than the knee length, easier to wear I guess.

Those look very nice. I don't think I'd invest in them, though, as I am the matchy-matchy type and that surely looks difficult to combine with.

Ahhh these are very similar. Very nice but such a copy!

I kind of can't wait for topshop to debut in NY, but I wish we'd get things at 35 a piece vs. 70+ because of the bad exchange rate.

I need those in a knee high version asap.
