What's the Diff? Sandal Edition

This is the Cynthia Vincent Odeon sandal.  It's $250.
This is the Cynthia Vincent Olympia sandal (available at shoptheshoebox.com).  It's $295.
And this is the Ciao Bella Kaitlynn.  It's $65.

The cheaper version looks almost exactly the same as the Olympia (except for the position of the ankle/heel straps) and almost exactly the same as the Odeon (except for the addition of the thong and heel backing) (and color, blah blah).

Given the fact that a) the Ciao Bella sandal is real leather so I wouldn't have to compromise on material, and b) paying (well) over $200 for an EXTREMELY trendy pair of sandals isn't the best use of my shopping funds, the Ciao Bella wins by a landslide for me.  You?

I agree! I see no difference worth such a huge price jump.
