Splurge or Steal // Studded Ankle Booties

Studded booties: 
Splurge (top) - $1,345 // Steal (bottom) - $188

I've been daydreaming about these studded Chloe booties since the very moment I saw them a few seasons ago, but when I came across the Jeffrey Campbell look-alikes the other day, I wasn't quite sure how I felt about such an obvious copy.  I try to avoid buying knock-offs whenever possible, but in this case, there is no chance of me ever springing for the original - so what's a girl to do?

Is it awful of me to consider the "steal" version, even though I've already thought through the moral conundrum? 

Would love to know your general thoughts on knock-offs, and beyond that - are these cutie booties a shoe-trend that you'd consider trying for yourself?
