Shoe Buzz: Whitney Port and her black ankle strap shoes on The City (plus her cage shoes!)
If you’ve been following my posts on shoes from The City with Whitney Port, you know that I’ve been trying to find the infamous black ankle strap heel she wears in the show (the one seen in the opening credits and in the first episode). I offered up some look-alikes in my previous posts, but I had pretty much given up on finding the exact pair – until I just happened to run across this pair. If the BCBGMAXAZRIA Monroe isn’t THE shoe, I have to say it’s the closest thing I’ve seen to it. It’s available at Smartbargains for $119.99, but it’s almost sold out. However, Endless also sells it for $239.95. So, maybe this shoe mystery is solved. What do you think?
Update: While checking out some footwear from BCBGMMAXAZRIA, I noticed this gorgeous heel and, I have to say, it looks a lot like the cage shoes seen on Whitney when she gets out of the cab in the show opening. The BCBGMAXAZRIA Gianni lace-up strappy sandal in black is $240 at bcbg.com and, I must say, it’s an amazing pair of shoes. They are also available in other colors at Zappos for $204, Endless for $203.90, and Shoes.com for $240. Bluefly has it in bronze for $144.
Update: So, this is another hot cage heel and it has to be the actual pair Whitney is wearing when stepping out of the cab (or a really good look-alike). The Dolce Vita Cher is available at the Dolce Vita website for $119.95, marked down from $152. There are only four sizes left available in black, but you can also get them in gray and teal. Urban Outfitters has them in maroon or teal for $148 and coupon code TEN4U takes an extra $10 off until 3/9/09. Shopbop has this style on sale for $120.40.
