It was only a matter of time when the instantly identifiable shoes from Prada’s spring summer 2008 collection would inspire the high street chains and their shoe designs.
Can you guess which shoe pictured above is the Prada Wavy Heel Mary-Jane and which is the Topshop Rainbow Swirl Platform sandal?
Let us know what you think before seeing the answer below.
Want to know which is which?
The Topshop Rainbow Swirl Platform sandal is the shoe on the right, retail at Â£65 it’s made of 100% leather and would be quite an interesting shoe if the Prada Wavy Heel Mary Jane (left) didn’t come before it.
Made from gold metallic leather featuring a black suede trim, the craftsmanship and imagination behind this shoe has to be considered when observing the price – it originally retailed at $720 before being marked down 25% to $540. Unfortunately only a size 10 (IT40) is left on the Neiman Marcus website, so if you want to purchase the real thing, you can get a very similar Prada shoe on BlueFly (if youâ€™re a size 8.5 and 10).
Would you buy either shoe, and how would you wear it?
