The Charlotte Olympia Cat Flat Knock-Offs You Asked For Are Here


From the first time I wrote about Charlotte Olympia's covet-worthy kitty flats, people have been wanting to know where they could find a cheaper version. The British footwear designer's original feline inspired footwear are gorgeous pieces of wearable art, made in Italy out of velvet and leather. A pair of the embroidered slippers retails for $595 at high-end department stores like Neiman Marcus, while the ankle-breaking platform wedge version clocks in at a cool $875.

Boohoo is currently selling a similar version of the flat, for those who want to get the kitty look without blowing a rent payment. $30 will score you a pair of the black or leopard print "Suedette Cat Face Ballet Shoes" that mimic the look of the real thing worn by stars such as Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, and Beyoncé.

I like the knockoffs posted but I found a site that has ones that look identical to me, although they are $159.00. I'm afraid that the site may be a scam because I cant find any info when I Google. Has anybody ordered from this site? www.charlotteolympiadesignershoes.com

Catsparella said...

@Denise I personally would not order from them. The shoes they are selling look identical because (I think) the pictures they are posting are of the actual Charlotte Olympia shoes, so who knows what they're really selling.

Catsparella and Denise, thanks for setting the recors straight. I had the same doubts about this site.

I just found some new knockoffs on ASOS:

http://us.asos.com/Blink/Blink-Slipper-With-Cat-Face/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2441194&SearchQuery=cat&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=-1&sort=-1&clr=Black

I think they're the best knockoffs so far. I am not a fan of the eyes but I think I'm going to get them anyway.

Catsparella said...

Thanks, Denise! Yeah I saw those and they look pretty good! I gonna do a big fall cat shoe post next week (I think..) Stay tuned !:)

Denise said...

I'm looking forward to it :-) I found this blog whilst searching for these knockoffs and I'm so glad I did! You do such a great job.

I found one more pair but they're sold out at the moment: http://www.jonjosef.com/products/gatsby-cat-black-velvet

Hi there, I adore these shoes...I looked on BooHoo and couldnt find them. Anyway any chance you guys could help a complete technophobic woman can find them...Im hopeless with the computer. My Husband wanted to buy the real deal for me for My Birthday, but now I really cant justify the expense...Cheers Ciaran
