JUN 24: We have discovered a new (to us) version of Kate’s Gianvito Rossi Sisely Sandals (aka criss-cross sandal) seen during the India/Bhutan tour. Kate’s have a 4.4″ heel and they originally cost $777; of course, they are long since sold out. But there is a version in a slightly lower heel & much lower price. Discounter Bluefly has the Gianvito Rossi Black Suede Sandal in 3.5″ heel that is $459. While not a repliKate, the shoe is offered in its original height in an orange-ish tomato red, $319.
