Vince Loves Chloe

Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery?  When I went to Barneys over the break, I fell for a pair of Chloe booties--I'd call them a plum colour--that were decked out in flashy buckles and studs.  They were delicate and tough at once. 

But in expected counterpart to their low heel, their price was steep, a number I couldn't justify spending. 

Vince Camuto

A browse through Nordstrom's website turned up an astonishingly similar pair by Vince Camuto, at a fraction of the cost.  I present both pairs here (in  a deep brownish grey), and wonder whether readers prefer Chloe to Vince or vice versa.  What details give away the more "luxe" pair?
