Spread the word: clear pumps aren’t just for exotic dancers anymore. Designers like Christian Louboutin, Prada and Manolo Blahnik have taken the plastic shoe trend and adopted it for high fashion (sorry, Courtney Stodden!). And just like any trend, it’s trickled down to mass market – which means you don’t have to spend $700 to get a stylish, tasteful pair.
So, you ready for our latest Taste Test round? This time, you’re guessing which PVC pump costs over $600 more than the other (above).
Answer: these Manolo Blahnik Pacha Translucent & Patent Leather Pumps (left) cost $695, while these BCBGeneration ‘Cynthia’ Pumps (right) cost just $89. I think that’s an obvious choice, now?
Test your Taste Test skills some more: can you tell which striped neon clutch costs $100 more? Or which stacked leather booties cost $336 more? Okay, how about the motherload: can you tell which of these products are Target knockoffs and which are designer?
