Steve Madden's officially on track to win copier of the year. This time, he's appropriated Fendi's suede basket booties. The Steve Madden version's patent leather - because fake patent leather's the cheapest material one can get. But the key points are practically identical - from the front platform to the skyscraper heel to the angular cut-outs to the peep-toe shape, the major difference is quality, detail and of course, the price tag. Yes, we understand the gaping difference between $760 for Fendi and $89.95 for Steve Madden. But on top of the quality the former gets you is the thinner stiletto, the scooped peeped toe, the gold side zipper, the flattering shape, the exquisite suede and the knowledge it'll last you more than a season. It's enough to make you wait for a sale and pray that your size is still available. Sorry Steve - maybe next time. --CARSON GRIFFITH
