Skinted vs Minted

Autumn is officially here and with a new season a new wardrobe must follow. At the moment I feel like I'm heading into a 'black' phase so naturally I fell head over heels when I saw the shoes I'm featuring in this post.

 I really love the edgy, boxy attitude that the Balenciaga pair has. The exaggerated buckle feature and the slight heel really packs a punch but the more subtle 'creeper' feel of the Jeffrey Campbell is really appealing too. The only let-down would be the fact that unlike the Balenciaga version, it's made of neoprene which probably isn't the best material for the horrible lovely British weather we're experiencing at the moment. One redeeming feature is that it's available in five colours ranging from a rich Burgundy to a cool Lavender. I really wouldn't mind having either pair as an early Christmas gift, any takers?

As a sidenote I'm pretty sure Balenciaga is one of the most copied designers of all time, if you're not sure what I mean check out Lynn & Horst's fascinating segment 'Balenciaga Questions' and tell me what you think.
