The second September hits, I usually begin my binge shopping on smoking slippers, which by now you know I love. They make for the perfect fall transition shoe when your feet just aren’t quite ready to squeeze into boots. These Jimmy Choo Wheel Studded Suede Smoking Slippers are perfect for everyday wear in the fall – not only are they basic black, but they’ve got that tiny bit of flair you’re always looking to add to your outfit. While I have no doubt in my mind that I would get every penny’s worth out of them, spending $695 just isn’t doable after all my splurging on summer vacations. Lucky for me, I found a very similar pair at less than half the price.
Of course, the Rebecca Minkoff Alvin Studded Suede Smoking Slippers are red suede versus the black Jimmy Choos, but these days, red can be as versatile as black. Going off the picture alone, the Minkoff slippers appear to have a less structure compared to the Choo’s, which in turn may be nice when it comes to comfort. In the end, both shoes prove to be great choices for fall. As much as I love the Jimmy Choos, I’m taking the Minkoffs on this one. The price difference is simply too steep to pass these up, and we have a feeling the Choos won’t be a sale for a good while.
