TOD'S DOUBLE T MULES
When there's the desire to get a good pair of leather mules, your mind starts to point towards Gucci's version. Maybe yes, maybe no. Then you started seeing them everywhere on the street (even the embroidered ones), and when they are massively duplicated by other retailers, you sort of lose interest in them. What is the point of spending thousand dollars on a pair, when I am able to get them in the high street stores. It is obviously a no brainer. The Gucci(s) lost their lust for me, when I saw the multiple inspired versions all over Taobao (a chinese marketplace site).
Then when I thought I might be able to keep my credit card in check, I laid my eyes on these Tod's version. Call it a copy of Gucci's or whatever. The rest was practically history.
