My mounting hesitations about peep toe booties have obviously had zero effect on the fashion world. The evidence? Models are still hoofing it down the runways in all-weather (or no-weather, depending on how you see it) patent leather boots sans toes. And, in an even greater testament to peep toe booties' popularity spike, the major fashion houses' versions are inspiring knockoffs. Take the white patent leather booties here. One pair's runway-ready at $255 (down from more than $600) while the other pair is a sub-$30 copycat. Think you can tell runway from realistic? Click away and find out.
