Vince Camuto Trinity vs Prada teal sandals

I have been searching for this unicorn for a long, long time!  

I kept seeing these Prada sandals on Gilt:

Aren't they gorgeous???  They are currently on 'sale' at Bluefly for $636!!!

Darn Gilt for using such high-street shoes on their models!

There is a knock off available at Baker's Shoes for $69.99, but not in teal.  And I love teal shoes.  Love love love!  (Not as much as red shoes, but still lots of love!)  Here's the purple version at Baker's:

There are some subtle differences between the two but not enough to say that the Baker's shoe is an original.  (I think Blue Fly tends to distort their photos width-wise because every other photo I've seen of this shoe has a taller platform.)

I searched high and low for a knock off of the teal version with no success until I found these:

These are Vince Camuto's Trinity sandal, which bears a striking resemblance to the Pradas.  They are $129 $89.99 at Lord & Taylor. They are soooo going on my wish list.  Once the price drops, they will be mine!  (I never pay full price for shoes.  Why should I?)

Now, if only I can find a knock off of this Fendi shoe in the blue/brown combo...darn you Gilt for teasing me with these expensive shoes!

What do you think of the Prada shoe?  Would you buy the knock offs?
