The Christian Louboutin "Praia" platform wedge sandal retails for $595 at Saks. I love, love, love this shoe! They would fit so nicely into my spring/summer wardrobe. However, that price wouldn't fit so well into my budget. Le sigh. As I browsed Heels.com, I came across these babies from Promise Shoes. You can see that the "Island" wedge is inspired by the "Praia", but only $545 cheaper. I'll take a size 9, please!
