Reader Helen alerted us to a very strange knockoff, indeed: The shoes at left are not, in fact, the same. One is from Dolce Vita, sold at Urban Outfitters. The other appears to be Urban Outfitters' own take on the show, except with a pointier toe and a slightly altered buckle. But why? You're out $30 either way, so we're not really sure why they bothered to knockoff Dolce Vita in the first place. Why make the knockoff if the higher quality original is the same price, and on the same site? Better yet - Why copy a shoe at all if it's not more like Miu Miu?
