High Street vs. Designer: Chockers does Gina
Gina shoes have shot to prominence this summer, thanks in part to their stunning 'Olympic' Union Jack shoes and in no small part due to the fact that Spice Girl Emma Bunton chose to wear a pair of their 'Roxy' Swarovski sling-backs as she rode on top of a taxi cab at the Olympic closing ceremony. Emma wore a silver pair, but we're sure she'd love the patriotic appeal of the tri-colour version, pictured above left.
Gina's 'Drew' shoe is part of the label's much coveted British Collection - but at £875 it's certainly not suitable for those on a budget. That's where our friends at Chockers come in, as they've made a rather convincing replica of the shoe that you can buy for the bargainous price of £29.99 - reduced from an original £39.99. Called 'London Town', the shoe has all the main hallmarks of Gina's style: shimmering gemstones, a slinky heel and of course the Union Jack motif - but at a fraction of the price.
