THEY are the bow heels that were all over social media over the holidays.
But for most people, the £775 price tag that accompanies the stunning Jimmy Choo heels was just a bit too expensive.

However, one fashion fan has come up with a clever way to make an almost perfect dupe of the shoes – for just £30.
Georgia Dyer explained that she’d decided to try and come up with a way of making the shoes at home because she “really wanted” the Jimmy Choo heels but couldn’t justify the price.
Instead, she bought a pair of black court shoe heels from New Look on ASOS for £20, and then purchased some black horse hair trim from Amazon for £10.
“I’ve literally just tried grabbing it and ruching it into bows and it looks pretty good, so I’m going to stay with it,” she said as she demonstrated how she was manipulating the trim into a bow.
She then stitched the middle of the bow and wrapped some more trim around the centre to conceal the stitching.
Once complete, she glued one bow to the front of one shoe, and one to the back of the other.
“I’ve put the other bow on the back of this one – I’ve got a bow on the front of this one, and I’m obsessed!” she grinned.
“You need to try this at home.”
In fact, the only hugely noticeable difference between Georgia’s shoes and the Jimmy Choo ones is that the designer heels have an ankle strap.
But fans were still mightily impressed by Georgia’s clever hack.
