I’m going to be honest, these shoes are slightly different, but they’ve got enough in common that they’re worth a look!
Jimmy Choo has always been popular with the stars, and these Globe heels have been seen all over the place – most recently on Olivia Wilde. I think they’re stunning. Note the black suede and the lovely metal detailing. Of course, at $745, they sure are pricey!
I know. I know. These BCBGirls Border Heels are a little more bulky. They’re not D’Orsay pumps, they’ve got a platform, and they’re a little chunkier all around. But doesn’t that just make them more wearable?! I’ve seen them, and I fell in love at first sight. And they’re certainly similar enough to be “inspired by” the Jimmy Choos! At $112, they’re about six or seven times more wearable for me!
I loved the BCBGirls heels before I even saw the Jimmy Choos. Now, I just think they’re fashion forward and worth more than a second glance. What do you think?
I absolutely love both of these shoes. Honestly, I must have been a bit out of the loop, because I missed the Valentino version and when I saw the Paris Hilton Senorita – I was in love! Then everyone kept saying it was the Valentino Knock-off and I took a look online, and sure enough! I think the Paris Hilton version is a great affordable option for those of you out there who don’t have an extra $745 laying around. Obviously, the Valentino has all those little details that make it so special – but I like the pink sole on the Paris Hiltons!

Paris Hilton Senorita Heel – Price at $94.99!
PS – We also have it in a stunning blue!!
When I first saw the Christian Louboutin Petal Sandal – I fell in love. It is a truly gorgeous shoe with the perfect feminine flair and delicate look. With beautiful chiffon-like petals running down the t-strap, this heel is a true stunner and would be perfect for a fancy affair or a wedding.
One of the new lines Heels.com picked up, Martinez Valero, did a very similar version of this beautiful shoe at a much more affordable price point. Perfect for looking glam without breaking your budget!

Martinez Valero Corrine Sandal – Priced at $134.99
Of course everyone loved Carrie’s dream shoe that Big presented her with in the Sex and the City Movie. That beautiful peacock blue satin pump embellished with a intricate silver and jeweled buckle at the toe – it took our breath away!
The shoe in the movie is the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue heel – a gorgeous shoe by no stretch of the imagination. While we were shopping for new shoes for the site in Atlanta, we picked up a new wedding line – Martinez Valero for this spring, and we immediately spotted a much more reasonably priced look-a-like.
The Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin pump is priced at $945 while the Martinez Valero Zenith heel will be priced at about $150.
Now you too can have your happy ending…
