As you can see from the pictures, the Dior Extreme Gladiator Sandals appear on Carrie’s feet A LOT in the new Sex And The City movie. Reportedly, Sarah Jessica Parker had 81 wardrobe changes during the movie and wore the Dior shoes a whopping 5% of the time!! Wow!
After seeing the movie on Friday night, I decided I definitely HAD to have a pair. Now obviously I wasn’t going to buy the actual Dior shoes… No, no, no! They cost $770. And they aren’t even in stock anymore! You might be able to find them in stores, but it’s not likely. One of the only places left to get them is on eBay and most of them are overpriced because of popular demand.
So I went to find a knock-off pair… If you are in the UK, you’re in luck. You can purchase a pair at ASOS for £55.00.
Don’t fret, we found a pair for you US gals too! You can get a similar knock-off in black or tan on Bakers.com, but they look kinda cheap… as in not-made-well.
You can also find a similar pair, the Luichiny Women’s Mandy Sandal, for $59.95 at Endless.com, but they are out of stock entirely. At least for the moment… And Victoria’s Secret has a pair of Strappy Platform Sandals for $50.00 that kinda, maybe looks similar.
Then I found an even better pair on SteveMadden.com for $109.95 They look the most similar to the ones SJP wore in the movie AND you get free shipping, plus get 10% off on your next purchase at SteveMadden.com when you join their email list.
So those are the ones I decided to buy. I ordered them Saturday night and paid $98.95! I don’t think I’ve ever paid that much for a pair of shoes… At least not that I can remember. But these just seem worth it… and now I can’t WAIT for them to arrive!
06/26/2008 – I just noticed that Steve Madden just added a black patent version and a
gray snakeskin version. Both are $109.95. Now I’m wondering if I should get 2 pairs… Those black ones are really pretty.
07/12/2008 – I received my brown Madalynn shoes and I LOOOOOOOVE them! They are so perfect and comfortable. They fit perfectly! READ MORE >>
I have also seen the Bakers version in person and they are really cheap looking. Not worth $50+ in my opinion. They look like something you would buy at Payless.
Here are some user submitted photos of the shoes:

And I know you gals have mentioned that Zappos gives FREE shipping as well as easy returns, so I thought I would include the links to buy them on Zappos for those of you that were interested!
