Can anyone out there tell me how these two brands differ in terms of quality and comfort? Such a drastic price difference for almost identical shoes has me questioning whether or not the Kate Spade's would be worth the splurge.
I don't have any pairs of Kate Spade or Nine West shoes, but my mom use to love Nine West until the quality went down and now finds them extremely uncomfortable.
I checked out the links to see what the shoes were made out of.
The Kate Spade pair is described as:
Satin, suede, patent, or printed leather upper.
And the Nine West pair is described as:
Leather, patent or fabric upper.
Lightly cushioned man-made footbed
Both pairs are described as having a "patent" upper and I don't know if that means vinyl or real leather, but I doubt the Nine West pair is. But otherwise, in terms of materials, I think the Kate Spade pair will probably be better in terms of quality and comfort because I find that leather will mold to my feet and is more breathable than a man made material. But for $298, I would find out first if the upper is leather.
