This is me Frustrated

Despite my last post, I really do love flats (sarcasm. learn to love it. well, I was serious about the platforms being cool thing) . In fact today I wore bright yellow ballet flats. One of my favorite pair of shoes are these Steve Madden flats. Say what you will about Steve Madden, but those shoes rock.
Well, I was looking at myDelias catalogue and noticed one of the models wearing those shoes which made me freak out a bit. Until I noticed the shoes for sale. As in, they made knock-offs of them. WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DO THAT? Steve Madden isn't exactly the most high fashion brand at all. And they don't even sell the damn originals at full price anymore (and from what I've noticed you can only get them from the steve madden website).
Don't buy those shoes from delias. Do not. Please. Just, don't.

I've seen 'knockoffs' of those everywhere so I'm not sure that Steve Madden started them at all.

Hey, I noticed that also. Plus, I was at Target the other day when I saw ANOTHER knock-off pair!:

if they're cheaper then why the hell not. i have trouble spending over 20 bucks on shoes though so maybe i should shut the hell up. in my defense i only have this problem because in europe i bought eight pairs of shoes, all averaging about 15 bucks. sweet.

I kind of hate those shoes, Steve Madden and otherwise. However, I have a natural revulsion towards metallics and I don't know why, so you know. I did see a pair of black pointy toe steve madden flats with silver studs all over the place that totally BLEW MY MIND to somewhere over there in the corner.

ok advice taken! I really want those metallic ballet flats like Sienna Miller has, i've looked for them all fall but I haven't found any except for sporty flats. I'm in Canada so that has something to do with it for sure.

Delias, Target and Steve Madden? I've seen those shoes at Payless as well. They are pretty nice though. The variance of opinion on this blog's comment is of great amusement to me. Leith doesn't post on here so you can insult her tastes OR so you can tell her what to post on.

I have those shoes and love them! You can actually get them places other than the website because i got mine at a small boutique and i've seen all those knockoffs too and they arent even close to as comfortable as the originals.

Steve Madden wasn't the first to design the metallic flat, so I don't see any problem with paying less for something trendy that isn't going to last anyway. Plus, SM isn't well enough made for the price. If you hate knock-offs, though, check out the New York Times article about designers possibly patenting their goods. If that happens, we're all screwed.

Hey, I'm kind of a lurker, and I saw those shoes at Hamricks and they were selling knockoff Crocs (wtf?). Odd, I know, considering they aren't that expensive or nice. Just FYI.

I love the blog, but there are some of us out there who can't even afford Steve Madden shoes. Actually, I probably couldn't even afford the Delia's pair right now... That's why I'm all for knockoffs... why not? So they're not the originals... so what? I tried on the Steve Madden ones and really liked them, though. Too bad I'm way too short for flats.
