So I was cruising various sites online seeing what I could see and I stumbled upon some footwear that look uncannily similar to some IT shoes that have graced the feet and runways of various models, celebrities and fashion industry personnel.
I’m sure we’ve all seen the simultaneously controversial and coveted Yves Saint Laurent caged heel.
Well here are two wallet-friendly versions of the shoe from B2 and Go Jane.
B2 caged sandal $119.98CA (originally $148CA)
- Go Jane caged peep toe heel $39.90US
One of the allures of the original YSL shoes for me and what I feel propels it from merely being a sophmoric grid shoe is the caged heel which these two versions do not have. WHile I like the cage on the B2 version better (I think the dual colourway and diagonal direction of the cage of the Go Jane version distracting and visually unappealing) I prefer the heel on the Go Jane version.

Well here is a version of them from Go Jane.
Go Jane stud decor cut-out heel $34.30US
Then I saw these very edgy Rodarte heels…
…and a very similar version from Go Jane again.
Go Jane strappy cracked platform heel $26.80US
Adaptation or knockoff? Would you wear one of these obvious ‘adaptations’ of the original or would you rather save your pennies and purchase the real deal?
