Savvy Red Platform Heels without the YSL Price

I would say most gals in my acquaintance (including yours truly) would drool without shame over this pair of YSL platform pumps. Thank god I have fat feet so I don't feel bad not buying these lovelies because they retail for $795. Ouch!!! I agree with Leah in her comment....
I love that YSL heels but I too, have "fat feet" and a "thin pocket" for that price. Hahaha! Please find something more affordable. I hope you can suggest a substitute with the same platform style and sky-rocketing heels.
As I have stated before, being savvy and stylish should not cost an arm and a leg all the time. I am not saying a gal won't need to spend some money to make herself looking snazzy but spending lots of money will not guarantee style as well. Trust me, I know gals like that. With that in mind, I found a few styles which offer similar style to the YSL platform pumps without the sky high ticket price.

1. Type Z I said So Red patent platform pumps $67.50 via Zappo
2. Nine West Rocha red suede platform pumps $78.95 via Zappo
3. RSVP Red kid peep toe platform pumps $84.90 via Zappo
4. Joan and David Flipp Red Marble platform pumps $200 via Nordstrom

5. Dolce & Gabbana Hidden Platform Pump $495 via Nordstrom --- I know, I know I was supposed to find really savvy red platform pumps but I really like this pair of D & G as well and it is also half price of YSL.
6. INC Louis platform pumps $79 via Macys --- Black and dark beige are also available (I adore the beige color)
7. Aldo Himel red patent peep toe platform pumps $90 via Aldo
8. Aldo Franchette platform pumps $90 via Aldo --- There are 5 other colors available but no red. I thought this pair is most similar to the YSL platform pumps.

No. 5 and 8 are my personal picks, what about yours?

  5. I like #7 except for the peep-toe... I hate how those always pinch my toes. Aside from that, it's a lovely shoe! I'm having a hard time not to scroll back and admire the original, though!

  11. They're all nice enough, but none of them have the YSL's sexiness. They're all missing that extra half inch as Victoria Beckham would say.

  12. Is it wrong to still covet the YSL original? There's just something about YSL that makes me weak in the knees - and the wallet! :)

  13. I said they are similar not the original. YSL is still more unique looking even if others are nice.

  15. The YSL's are so hot and I really like the Aldo peep toes too!

  16. I agree and quite like the Dolce & Gabbanas! I wear the same pair of cute but narrow shoes similar to these YSLs and have to find cute shoes that don't kill my feet.

  19. #8 is a pretty good knock off of #5 :D

    threading does hurt a lot, especially the first few times but once you get used to it it's not so bad :)
