This weekend promises to be a shoe-shopping-showdown. On Saturday—and probably only on Saturday, since it's almost an assured sell-out—the new Jimmy Choo for H&M line debuts. Prices range from $60 - $200; most are clocking in around $150.
On Sunday, the Decadestwo/Port 26 popup is doing a resale shoe blowout, with some pretty elite names (Louboutin, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton) priced at $150 and below.
So where do you stand? Would you rather have a brand-spanking-new "entry level" Jimmy Choo, or a gingerly-used shoe from one of the shoe gods like Manolo, Louboutin, or YSL?
