Hey! i’m also a bargain hunter and I love when you can find runway inspired clothes for less. I am not against buying inspired clothing, but it is difficult when the item looks like it has been directly copied.
I think in this instance, because the Litas are such a statement shoe, personally I would go with the original instead of the copies. (not that i can afford them though… :( ) Because the Litas are so popular and recognisable, I guess that the copies could be viewed as a cheap knock-off and may not be seen as “fashionable” or cool as the real ones…
However, they are definitely a lot more affordable, and the comments on the site say that they are comfy and worth the price, and they do look pretty good.
Truth is, the Lita’s aren’t the original – thank Charles Anastase. With that being said, these seem to be mimicking the Lita’s. Most JC shoes are inspired by other designers. I’d personally buy these – they’re cheaper. And to be honest, the shoe isn’t an incredibly classic style. Chances are, it will be considered unfashionable in a few seasons – which shouldn’t stop one from wearing it, but I wouldn’t be too conflicted about buying these!posted over 4 years ago
I would totaly buy them , they are pretty cheap and good looking, and I agree with Catherineposted over 4 years ago
I don’t think it’s that bad to get a look for less if you like it.. Try not looking at the brand but more how the shoes are and since you really like it, then go for it. I dont think people will care as much as you think and who knows you might get a few compliments.posted over 4 years ago
I wouldn’t buy the inspired shoe, because I think it’s a little disrespectful to the ORIGINAL designer of the shoesposted over 4 years ago
doesn’t matter what others think – if you like them, go for it!
also, fashion is a creation of people’s imaginations which were inspired by others. and fashion repeats itself too! personally, i don’t think litas are “iconic” because for me, i consider something iconic to be timeless (for example chanel classic flap bag). again, this is my opinion but i’d love to hear other opinions too!
if you love them & you’re more comfortable with spending alot less, then go for the bargains. it’s better than spending a load on a pair of designer shoes that might not even fit you in a year.posted over 4 years ago
Ok first I want to say Rock what you want regardless of what others may think or feel. If you like it, feel like u look good in it, and it make u comfy by all means do it. Secondly, all style is a knock off from somewhere seeing as style and fashion repeats itself. I am the biggest bargaining shopper I know and I could care less what the name is as long as “I” like it.posted over 4 years ago
