The Dany shoe by Jessica Simpson is very popular among fashion bloggers and fashionistas on Lookbook. I've seen them on a lot pictures and photoshoots all over the world. According to the Jessica Simpson Collection website:
The Dany shoe from Jessica Simpson is truly a style statement. Heads will turn when you show off this alluring leather t-strap sandal, which stands on a soaring 5.8 inch wood heel.It retails for US$98 and comes in both black and tan. I love how it looks but wonder if it's comfortable and easy to walk on with its "soaring" height. Anyone?
Oh, it comes in silver too. Found this on the Zappos site:
Jeffrey Campbell also came up with its own version called the Foxy:
Campbell shoes are usually the more affordable alternative to branded shoes but this time their Foxy shoe retails much more at US$145. Their version is made of genuine calfskin, manmade materials with a shoe height of 8" (heel height at 5.5" and platform height of 2"). It also comes in caramel color and leopard print.
I personally love the original Jessica Simpson Dany shoe better with its darker wood platform and the way it makes the leather look like it covers all the way to the sole. The Jeffrey Campbell Foxy in black has a more beige-colored wood while their caramel and leopard version uses a more brown-colored wood. It also has extra leather at the edges of the shoe while the Jessica Simpson version is totally cut out.
But the more I look at it, I'm beginning to like the Jeffrey Campbell Foxy in Caramel...
