Tell me I don't need these...

If you've been a reader for a while, you know I have an obsession with shoes.  I day dream about owning a pair of designer ones one day, particularily the ones with the red sole. :)  (Mr. Louboutin, if you're reading this, I'd love it if you'd be so kind to send me a pair!!!)  And I've also been in love with the cat and sparrow print Miu Miu platform sandals.  They're a little more "affordable" than the red soles, but they're sold out. 


Then I came across these on ebay.  They're only $53.  I don't know how I feel about these, because they are clearly knock-offs.


And enter these F21 maryjanes.  The shape of the shoe is clearly like the Miu Miu ones, but at only $27, they are definitely more attainable.  I've never bought any shoes from F21, so not sure how comfortable these would be.  Do any of you own F21 shoes?  How do you feel about them?


So, do I need these maryjanes or what?

Love, S

I saw those F21's MiuMiu knock offs too and I literally stopped breathing. But then I went to inspect them further (by zooming in on the shoes, hahaha..) and I saw some glue between the shoe and the platform. I know it's only a photo, but it's the shot of the real shoe, right? So now I'm doubting the quality. I'm thinking of skipping this one and save my money for a bigger purchase, which is... Jeffrey Campbell Oh Yes! :D

What do you think? You might want to skip this one too and save for JC Warsaw boots ;)

Hi Sharon!
I really really want those Miu Miu sparrow shoes too. but no luck!
I would skip the F21 shoes. they are so uncomfortable and painful to walk in! not this specific pair but i have a few and have never worn them..

Never bought F21 shoes, but they sure are cute!

I just bought the f21 miu miu-esque pumps online. I hope they are comfy! And I would really love to own the real ones too. I came across a link (can't remember the exact url though) where some people from China or I think Korea selling exact same replicas of that Miu Miu pumps plus some other for $100. I was so tempted to buy! But it's still a lot of money. Haha.

yes i just posted those polka dot F21 shoes on my fall wish list yesterday on my site! great pick!!! :)

Jessica said...

very cute shoes!

Taj Acosta said...

F21 shoes are really a hit or miss, some are comfy some aren't. Those are really cute though, I saw them the other day and did a double take! xoxo

The F21 ones are adorable. More than likely, they will be uncomfortable (and cheaply made). I don't know if a pair of insoles will ease the pain so it's up to you.

I say save for a beautiful, versatile pair of red soles.

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! I'm so glad you found me, I love your style. Definitely following :)

Sunny said...

I've never purchased an F21 shoe but that is because my home girl scared me. She said her feet hurt so bad and she got blisters. ECK!!!!

projectvee said...

YOU NEED THEM!
aha but yeah, f21 shoes will probably be very uncomfortable.. poor life choice? maybe it'll be worth it? hehe.. can't wait for the day when i invest in a pair of beautiful designers!!

Haven said...

Gettt themmm! My forever21 shoes are perfectly comfortable.

Well I've had some problems with the cheap sandals they have for under $10... but both of the heels I've gotten from there are just dandy!

Oh you need them. Desperately. Please buy them now. I would buy the Forever 21 pair myself; but I'm worried that I won't be able to walk in them - I've only just recently trained myself to walk in wedges, and don't think I'm ready to take on heels. :P

bubblistyle said...

i would totally get them if they were this pretty! :) please stop by my blog when you have the chance!

Nadia Kamballa said...

Well, the F21 shoes is clearly worth to try. But perhaps it's better to wait for more superior choice :p

Thanks for visiting my blog, btw.. Come back sometimes..

oh man, i've been crushin on those miu mius since they first came out, too:) the pattern is so cute! wow, those f21s are quite similar! i've only purchased a pair of their flats and it's quite comfy. i've tried a few heels at the store and it's hit and miss. some seem comfy and others are cute but not too comfortable. sorry it's not much help!

wow, you are making me lusting for shoes all over again!

i like the miumiu ones the best, the structure of it is gorgeous and the print is great!

not really a fan of the print on the ebay one. and with forever 21 shoes, i think you should give them a skip and just save up for something better and perhaps made out of leather! the forever 21 shoes seem like they are going to hurt, you wouldn't want that especially when they are heels!

Jessica said...

I wonder how long we'll all be in love with this shoe shape. I'd probably spring for the F21 version since that's such a low investment to play with the trend.

i'm waiting for these F21 ones to be delivered. for less than $30, it was a no-brainer. good thing too, i checked back & my size is already sold out! i have 3 pairs of F21 shoes that fit just fine & also some designer shoes that pinch my feet BAD...so i wouldn't go just with price point on comfort O.O
