Since this summer, the wedge sneaker has slowly tiptoed out of the spotlight as we welcomed the slip-on sneaker into our lives—and wardrobes. Designers such as Celine, Givenchy, Prada, and Marc by Marc Jacobs have taken this surfer-and-skater staple into the fashion world and the demand was instant. But these slip-on sneakers aren’t just any old canvas pair that you would find at a Vans shop. These slip-ons have gotten a high-end makeover in prints and patterns and lush materials (think plaid, pony hair, leopard, and graphics), which comes at a high (and inevitable) cost. But with any sort of “It” item, knock-offs with cheaper price tags are sure to follow. So we ask you, which leopard print slip-on sneaker costs more than the other?
