If memory serves me correctly, they were around $225.
Then I heard a viscous rumor the neon cap toe kept falling off the shoe.
So when I saw these shoes at Forever21, I was willing to take a chance to the tune of $17.
Side-by-side it is obvious the Kate Spade flat is the superior shoe. The F21 pair lacks the lovely cork I was so feeling, however, the over $200 savings cancels this out and allows me to be satisfied. Fingers crossed the neon cap toe stays put.
