Sam Edelman does Rockstud

You have all seen images, I’m sure, of the beautiful Valentino Rockstud.

In my opinion it is a shoe that is a simply stunning combination of edginess, simplicity and refinement.  But expensive.

Now you can get a version at high street prices thanks to Sam Edelman.

First I tried a version of the stiletto in Nordstrom – unfortunately the vamp is too low and narrow for me, and my pesky little toe wouldn’t oblige.  Still they are gorgeous and I was very sad to have to leave them behind.

I have, however, ordered the sandal version.

Here’s the Valentino:

And the Sam Edelman Gabriela, available in nude, black and pewter:

This next sandal that caught my eye is actually incredibly reminiscent of this Isabel Marant sandal from last year:

The Sam Edelman Dion is available in black, nude, tan and off white.  I love the thong strap and I’ll be trying this as soon as I see it in store:

So there we go – call it a copy or a tribute, I’ll be rocking the Sam Edelman version of the Rockstud this summer!  I’m more than happy to wear a good imitation and Sam Edelman’s shoes have always served me well.
