Miu Miu vs. Urban Outfitters Jeweled Heels: Can You Tell the Difference?

These jeweled heels get a little too close for comfort.

In the age of fast fashion giants like Zara and H&M, we're used to seeing sales floors filled with loosely -- or not so loosely -- interpreted versions of designer goods, right down to the shapes, prints and color stories. Every once in a while, though, we are floored by a beyond-striking resemblance, and our most recent discovery is one such case. An astute tipster (former Fashionista editor Faran Krentcil, to be specific) sent us the above image -- the shoe on the right is a classic Miu Miu jeweled heel, and the one on the left is currently for sale at Urban Outfitters.

While Miuccia Prada is one of the industry's biggest trendsetters season after season, Urban's take looks like it could be right out of the label's accessories look book for Spring 2013. Sure, the price tag on the Urban Outfitters pair is much less of a shock than the Miu Mius -- $59.99 versus well over $500 -- but these move way past the "inspired by" category and into straight-up copy.
