Real vs. Steal – Alaïa Suede & Mesh Shoe Booties

by Irina on February 16, 2014

So we’re back to Alaïa! These shoes might seem familiar because we’ve already written about the lace-up version of this hot mesh cut-out bootie a few months ago. And surprise, surprise, I’m totally in love with this Alaïa style as well! But as usual there’s no way I could afford it. Boohoo!

Audrey Brooke “Venice” Mesh Booties

Luckily, I can afford these $69.95 mesh booties by Audrey Brooke which are a great Alaïa alternative if you can’t spend a fortune on the real designer originals.

Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry “Letizia” Mesh Platform Booties

I also stumbled upon these platform mesh ankle booties by Chinese Laundry which are also obviously inspired by the Alaïa heels above. They’re a bit more expensive than the Audrey Brooke shooties but still waaaaaay cheaper than the real deal. Available in black, nude, rose and red suede.

Pink and Pepper “Dinka” Mesh Shooties

And here’s another Alaïa look-a-like for all of you who like their heels to be a manageable height. These Pink and Pepper mesh booties will save your feet, your wallet and yet will still give you the look of Alaïa.
