Pleaser’s edgy Domina 119 zipper heels have been turning heads for years with their snazzy patent leather straps with a wrap around inlaid zipper.
Now sold under Pleaser’s Devious label, the shoes have a 6 inch heel and a balancing ankle strap to help you strut your stuff (buy a pair online now from Amazon.com from only $48.95).
But what caught my eye today was not the Domina sandals but rather a similar looking pair of new zip-fastener leather sandals from high-end brand Giuseppe Zanotti, pictured below (no longer available for purchase).
There are differences of course, one being the price. The Pleaser zip sandal is about 5% of the price of its designer counterpart (the Zanotti one retailed from Saks for $995; the Pleaser version is only $48.95 from Amazon.com).
Other differences are that the Domina has an additional ankle buckle and a higher heel: 6 inches verses 4.25 inches.
Also on the topic, “Domina” has long been a word used by Pleaser to describe many of the high heels in its range. However that exclusivity is about to change as Charlotte Olympia has launched a new bondage-inspired heel also called Domina (pictured above).
The Charlotte Olympia shoe has a 4.5 inch heel and retailed via net-a-porter for $895 (it is no longer available).
