The overall shape of these two shoes is obviously very different, but that distinctive sculpted platform is so very "Nicholas Kirkwood" that I can't help but wonder if Carolos Santana has been taking notes from his fellow designer?

The Santana shoes are just $88 at Zappos, and are perhaps a more wearable take on Nicholas Kirkwood's style. I rather like them, and although there's no beating the original in this case, these could be a more affordable option if you don't mind the blatant, er, "homage"...
