The Atacoma wedges sent shoe lovers into a frenzy when they debuted in Acne's Pre-Fall '09 collection. Alexa Chung fell particularly in love with them; and the coveted bootie sold out within just a few days after she wore them on her MTV show. So maybe that's what inspired Jeffrey Campbell to name his knock-off the Alexa? It's a well-studied copy. The shape's exactly the same, the diagonal seaming is spot-on. In fact, the only difference between the two is the transition from the black leather to the silver metal panels. While Acne's is seamless, Campbell's has a bit of a divot. With so many wedge booties out this season, it should be easy to avoid buying a pair based off someone else's ideas.
