PVC Shoes – Do or Dupe?

PVC shoes are all the rage right now. The Cinderella glass slippers of the moment! I decided to investigate the style and main brands.

Most bloggers feature the Manolo Blahniks. Each pair of the PVC Manolo Blahniks cost over $650. 

Now, don’t get me wrong. There are a few things I invest it: designer handbags and designer shoes. Why? Both 100% make an outfit and both always fit. Ha! However, I always invest in the forever wardrobe staples. I don’t buy trendy looks unless super discounted.

So, this PVC fashion trend had me curious. I bought a pair of Manolos and a pair by the brand Schutz (Megan Markel is always seen in this brand) to compare the two. The price point of the Schutz brand for the same style shoe is $180.

Note: I am a 7.5 (37.5 European Sizes) in most shoes. I can wear an 8 but never a 7.

The Manolos run small. You need to size up on these. I would need a size 38. 

The Shutz brand runs true to size but the PVC area for toes is larger and looser. The heal placement is also different. I invest in Manolos because dude knows how to make a comfortable heal. The heal placement, pitch of the heal and support is incredible. The Schutz isn’t as comfortable but not to the untrained foot!

Having said that, if I wanted to buy the PVC for the look I would 100% buy the Schutz brand.

Why I like the PVC Look

Hello, long legs! With these heals your ankles are invisible so the illusion of legs for days is darn right awesome. Wear a killer pair of shorts, a romper like this and girl, your legs are rocking!

What I don’t like

Your feet can get a bit sweaty. It’s plastic. That’s a personal call on your level of comfort for beauty! 

Final Verdict

This Schutz brand is defintily the way to go if you love this look!

It’s a pretty and sexy trend. Like Dihann Caroll always said, the legs are the last thing to go, so if all else isn’t working out in your body, show off them legs, girls!
