Lanvin flats replica?
No, I don't mean the illegal terrorist-supporting and child labor using replicas. I just mean a really well inspired Lanvin look-alikes from... Gap! They are being sold for $30-$40 and I have to admit that it is pretty cheap comaring to the actual Lanvin flats. Yes, they quality may not be as great, but hey, you might get tired of them sooner than they start to break and rip. And the beauty of it is that you won't feel guilty throwing the old ones out and getting yourself a new pair. Maybe even in some new funky color!
They are rather pleasent to wear and the leather is pretty soft, too. Definitelly a great replacement for those who don't wanna splurge on the real deal.
If Gap isn't really cool enough for you, try out the NINE WEST flats. These are also very comfortable and isn't the ostrich-like pattern looking cute? Those are sold for the dubble of what the Gap flats cost, but that is still so much less than the Lanvins. I really think that is a great and a very much cheaper way to get the desired look if you aren't the kind of person to spend several hundreds of dollars on a pair of summer shoes.
All of these can be bought online at the official Gap and Nine West websites.
