We remember seeing a knockoff of Christian Louboutin's Sarah B shoe a few seasons ago at Nine West, but we didn't think much of it. Then we saw another at Forever 21, which struck us as odd. Why are mass retailers knocking off a shoe that's nearly four years old? Maybe the new strategy is to knock off old designs and hope no one will remember far back enough to notice. The only real difference between the two is the heel - but we imagine 5-inch stilettos wouldn't have gone over well at a $20 price point anyway - and, of course, the Louboutin red soles, which would have actually been kind of funny. -- JAZZI McGILBERT
