Wanted: Stunt Double (See Jane Search)

I love everything about these shoes, except two things: the price and the platform.  I understand the need for extra heel height, but being the pragmatic girl I am, I know it'll be hard for me to get around in these kicks.  I'd also prefer not to be 6'5" in my shoes.


I'm pretty good at scouring the internet for viable alternatives but have come up completely short on this particular task.  Aren't there any suede black pumps out there with an ankle strap that aren't $380 (and won't make me look/walk like Frankenstein)?

P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway that ends on Thursday night!

GORGEOUS. But that is quite the platform. F21 does have some super cute ones, but they're a more Miu Miu-inspired.

6.5 in is a little much - hard to find great platforms!

This is a twisted ankle waiting to happen...I'll keep my eyes peeled Anna Jane. There's got to be a safer alternative - for the body and the wallet.

These are amazing! I love pumps with an ankle strap. It really adds a special something to the shoe. I haven't seen anything as great as this recently, but I'll keep an eye out.

I love the platform. Once you try a good heel with a platform you'll want them on all your heels.

Yes! I just bought a pair at Macy's...black suede with the ankle strap and no platform. They were $80 by INC international concepts. I felt bad spending $80 on them, but been looking for a pair forever!! I tried to find a link to them on the macy's site, but couldn't find one...maybe they are only in stores. good luck!

Geez! I love those shoes! :) I can't believe you're that tall!

P.S. I would wear those shoes in a heartbeat and look fabulous! :)

How tall are they again? 2 inch platform 4 inch heel or 6 inch heel?
