Battle of the Shoe: Siriano vs. McQueen

Check out this cool shoe post shared by iamtybrown in the Cheap Chic group.

I was browsing the Payless site and I found Christian Siriano's new collection. They are a bit McQueen-ish. I think that's why I heart them! Whose design is better? Siriano is definitely cheaper on the purse!

To be honest, I love these ones even more that McQueen's ;)

And most shoes from Payless (especially the Alice+Oliva shoes) are easy on the feet.

I am not sure that either shoe is made for comfort? But its apparent that McQueen has had an influence on Siriano!

Yikes. I would never wear a shoe that high or with that structure that was also of Payless quality.

@Vinnie, I bought a pair of $20 pumps from Payless and they were one of the cutest, most comfortable pairs of shoes I've ever owned and I'm the biggest shoe comfort nut ever.

I love love love the silhouettes on these but the McQueen wins, hands down. I have a huge soft spot for steampunk-esque items and the heel is just too amazing! Too bad I could only afford the Sirianos.

Have you ever tried on shoes from Payless? They really are so uncomfortable. I doubt that the Siriano one would last long, or be that comfy, just because it was manufactured for a discount line. That said, I do like the print.

They're both hideous. When even shoes are looking acid washed, that's when you know the 80's revival has gone too far. These look like the kind of shoes you would have seen worn by some babe on top of a car in a Whitesnake video.

I love the shape of both of the shoes featured. Christian Siriano worked at Alexander McQueen before winning Project Runway. I love both designers and can see McQueen's influence in many of Siriano's pieces.
