Steven Madden’s Balenciaga-inspired Shoes

Remember these wild $4,175 Balenciaga shoes from last summer?

Well now, Steve Madden has created a mock version – the Steve Madden Bukled, which is only $99.95. It’s not quite the same thing but the concept is really close. This shoe also comes in three other colors – black, cognac and white.

Steve Madden has created a few other Balenciaga-inspired shoes, including these open-toe, open-heel boots. These boots come in the same multi-colored combination as the Bukled, as well as black, brown, cognac and nat nubuck.

The lace-up boots are $149.95, while the Balenciaga originals were $4,175. The Steve Madden version, dubbed the Steve Madden Bombb, is on the right. Close enough for saving over four grand!

You can pre-order both of the Steve Madden shoes at SteveMadden.com and they’ll be shipped in June.

    umm i think that these shoes are kinda weird and fashionable at the same time. I like the colors of the shoe but the whole concept is a little wacky.
