YSL vs. Steve Madden

I can't speak for comfort but this pair of Steve Madden platform heels look very similar to the YSL platform high heels that I have been drooling over but the price is doing a pretty nice job of stopping me. Well, the fact that I  can barely walk in them may also be a factor. Personally I think YSL design is more sleek but Steven Madden cost only a fraction at around $89 while YSL is whopping $795.

So are you team Steve Madden or YSL?

  1. Because Steve Madden is what I can afford, I'd say I am "team madden". Both versions are devilishly beautiful though.

  2. i say get the madden version..
    they look VERY similar,

  4. Personally, I'm always the original, never the rip-off. Would rather stalk the originals on eBay and consignment stores for years rather than get lesser quality today.

  6. Steve Madden is the only affordable option for me. My very favourite purple heels are Steve Madden. They're not as comfortable as they could be, but they're so cute, I'd happily wreck my feet to wear them!!

  7. BUY! Of course, I agree, the YSL pair is much sleeker. But, right now, I cannot afford shoes the same price as my mortgage! :)

  9. Both versions are beautiful. I would have to buy the less expensive pair if I was getting them for someone.

  11. I agree about liking YSL slightly better, but Steve Madden does some great shoes! At $79, that's a pretty good deal to me :)

  17. I love the YSL pair, but I'm gonna have to say Team Madden because they're way more affordable.

  19. Steve Madden - definitely. I have had many amazing experiences with Steve Madden's footwear. And the price is always right!! :)

  20. I would NEVER spend over $200 on a pair of shoes! because the whole point of shoes is to step in dirt so your feet will be protected and clean. spending over $200 on something you are going to step on dirt just doesn't make sense to me... I'd have to go with steve madden :D

  21. I am stalking the silver glitter Louboutins that Madden did a version of. They are super cute and since not a shoe I would wear super often, I'd rather not spend the hundreds the Louboutins would run. Plus, I plan to paint the bottom teal or purple to add a bit of kick

  22. LOVE those shoes!!! New goal... wear more heels!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Go with the Maddens! The YSLs are such classics, but why pine over something you don't have instead of being happy with something you can? :)

  24. I have to say YSL but I would only buy if they were on sale...SM had a pair of Givenchy's look alikes...I just couldn't do the "knock off" version tho...

    ReplyDelete
  25. if i could afford YSL, YSL all the way!! haha

    ReplyDelete
  26. The SM pair is a little bit too glossy for me, nothing beats YSL!

  27. I almost bought this YSL, but there were so expensive for my budget...I bought some Pradas instead...hehe

  28. I'd have to see them in person, but I guess the main factor would be comfort. I know some of Steve Madden's shoes can be hell to walk in, but I can't walk in the YSL ones either!

    ReplyDelete
  29. wow, the steve maddens are sooo similar. i love how there are so many affordable options these days

  30. I know for a fact I wouldn't be able to walk in those, but I do have some (stylish) Steve Madden sneakers which I adore :)

  31. I'm going to go with the YSLs here. The hidden platform and much higher heel just make them look a lot more sophisticated and better constructed than the Steve Maddens. Also, I'm speaking with a bit of a bias here because I've almost always had bad luck with Steve Maddens falling apart or hurting my feet. :(
