I was browsing the shopnastygal.com site and came across the Sam Edelman Zoe Boot.

They look exactly like the Balenciaga Fall 2006 boot. What a to die for collection. 3 years for this Balenciaga boot to be knocked off, interesting. I posted about the Balenciaga Spring 2007 Lego shoe trickle down effect last year. I will have to gather more evidence for my 2 – 3 year public palatability theory of Balenciaga shoes. I’ll be watching.

  1. @geekigirl thank you so much for rocking the yellow corset last night, you looked fantastic

  2. Actually, It didn’t take 3 years for them to knock those shoes off! While doing a search for those booties on ebay,, I came across the Sam Edelman knockoffs(which at the time were only carried at Victoria’s Secret). That was only one season after the real deals were available.
    They were such a hit, that Sam Edelman decided to re-introduce the style again this season.
