Battle of the Dolce Vitas: Pela vs. Pali

I was shopping for birthday gifts at Nordstrom when I came across the Dolce Vita shoes that I have been vying for a year. Just for kicks, I decided to check out the price tag and my mouth dropped: only $88.95?! Is this for real?! I saw that DV by Dolce Vita made its own version of the Pela shoe ($159) called the Pali, and it's practically identical. The only difference to me is the wedge height. I am willing to make that sacrifice for that price! Needless to say, I will be making a pit stop at Nordstrom this weekend to purchase these!

  1. You have them mixed up. It's the pela that is the original by dolce vita and is the more expensive and the pali that is cheaper. The heel is also not the only difference as noted in their product descriptions. The material is different on the Pali and many reviews say they're not as great

  2. Thank you so much for catching my mistake! I have re-published it with corrections accordingly. The Pali had some pretty good reviews on Nordstrom, but I guess it's one of those things as "you get what you pay for." =)


Thank you for all your lovely comments!
