The Look For Less: Marni Platform Sandals

It was lust at first sight when I saw these Marni platform sandals walking down the runway. I love how the chunky platform and patent straps give off an artsy, architectural aura. I can already see myself wearing these with dark tights now and with a floral skirt in the Spring. Alas, marvelous Marni comes at a hefty price tag, so I'm searching for a cheaper version!

To see the look for less,


BCBGirls at ShopStyle

This BCBGirls Edmund Sandal ($110) is just as nice. I do a lot of city walking so the (slightly) lower heel is a lifesaver. The black heel is also a chic alternative to Marni's wedge heel. Done and done.

I really love these. And have for awhile. They run very small but are very comfortable. They are from '08 S/S so you might be able to find them; or at least cheaper than the $900+ price tag they were going for when they first came out.

neither are my style, but of the two I actually prefer the BCBG - I like the two colors, and I definitely prefer that heel (I hate wedges)...

I don't like either of them

I don't think I like either very much. They are too chunky for my taste.

These shoes would draw negative attention to your feet. They look cheaply made and just too heavy. Of course what do I know, I live in Bernardos, Boems, and Mystiques most of the time.

They are both so UGLY

I agree with some of the previous comments. The wedge is what really makes the shoes amazing, along with the cut, which the BCBGirls pair doesn't quite replicate. The shape of the less expensive ones actually makes them look like they're from Payless, which is scary for the price you'd still be paying for them.

No where near the same for me. One of the main reason the Marni ones are so amazing is because of the wedge.

I don't really like either...the strap is too wide for me and they're a little TOO chunky.
