Louis Vuitton Resort 2010-2011 shoes look uncannily like Gucci spring 2005

Today I opened my copy of Vogue US edition December 2010 and saw this ad for Louis Vuitton’s Resort (or Cruise) collection for 2010-2011.

What struck me were the shoes worn by the model in the photo. They look very much like my Gucci shoes from Spring 2005. Check out the photos below.

There are slight differences, I admit. The Louis Vuitton shoes have tiny white bows on the front of the shoe and the fabric isn’t identical, but they seem awfully similar.
