ysl-brantano.jpgIf you're leaning towards the 'yay' side of our poll on Yves Saint Laurent's mesh 'cage' boots, then you might be wondering how you're going to stump up the necessary £900+ for a pair of your own. But fear not: plenty of knock-off merchants are already producing 'tributes' to the style; the cheapest I've found being these Brantano slingbacks for £22, which follow the same basic principle of caging around the foot, though admittedly the heel is a bit more basic...

Look out for many more shoes apeing this style soon, as fashion gets caught in a 'cage' of designer copies!
