Can You Tell Which Zodiac Smoking Flat Costs $470 More Than The Other?

When it comes to flats, the smoking slipper is one of the newer styles we’ve fallen in love with. Not quite a ballet flat, not quite an oxford, this particular shoe is a great in-between for your collection. What we also love about smoking flats is its versatility. We’ve seen solid velvet types, patterned and printed pairs, and studded flats. But there’s nothing like a piece of clothing or an accessory to show off a little bit about yourself, whether it’s your witty charm or, in this case, your astrological sign. Sure, there’s plenty of ways to play with this idea but we noticed that a few designers have applied their creative chops to this personal touch. Can you tell which zodiac smoking flat costs hundreds of dollars more than the other?

Answer: The shoe on the left is the Charlotte Olympia ‘Libra’ Flat ($695) and the shoe on the right is the Rebecca Minkoff Zodiac Smoking Flat ($225). The Italian-made Charlotte Olympia pair, which was introduced as part of the designer’s Cosmic Collection earlier this spring, features handpainted hardware as the astrological sign, a suede upper, and leather lining. The Rebecca Minkoff pair displays its signs with an embroidered patch, along with a leather upper and lining. Minkoff’s designs are a newer release this season. Plus, she recently promoted the flats on her Instagram account. So it’s pretty clear who came up with the design first. Did you guess correctly? Do the stars align this month for you to buy a pair?
