Casadei is known for its signature needle-thin blade heel. In recent seasons, this type of heel has grown increasingly popular across the board, and it’s also becoming a favorite among celebrities. Unfortunately, owning a pair of your own towering blade heels will cost you a pretty penny ($690 and up, to be exact). We’ve found a similarly alluring booties that will deliver the same look for less, and we have Sam Edelman to thank.
The Sam Edelman Calf Hair Bootie features a similar thin metal heel, this time with a jagged design running down the back. The heel on this design isn’t as high as the towering Casadei’s, but it still measures approximately four and a half inches. The Casadei blade heel adds an elevated quality, and if this is the look you’re trying to achieve, then the same Edelman boot might be a strong alternative.
