I have been looking for a cheaper alternative to the Jeffrey Campbell Lita for a while now, and recently came across these shoes. Overall these shoes are pretty similar and give the desired look, but for a much lower cost. I paid $45 for this pair of shoes, about a quarter of the price of the Jeffrey Campbell. However, there are some difference between the shoes. The material isn't as high of quality. It is a much cheaper faux leather. Also, the shoe's platform isn't as comfortable as the Jeffrey Campbell. I am pleased with the lack of noise the shoe makes when walking. You can hardly hear a sound! I hate being the one girl in the room with clacking heels. The way the shoes laces up is also great. It holds your ankle in a comfortable and secure place. The holes for lacing are also reinforced very nicely. Another thing I love about these shoes is that they, surprisingly, have great traction! I live in an area with snow, and I don't slide around in these like I do in some of my other heels and platforms. I think that these shoes are a great, cost effective alternative for the Lita if you don't mind sacrificing come small details.
