Alexander McQueen is one of my favorite designers of all time and I frequently find myself falling in love with almost everything he designs. And these fabulous Alexander McQueen striped leather pumps at NET-A-PORTER were absolutely no exception. The peep-toe pumps originally retailed for $805, then went on sale for still-not-very-affordable $603.75 and are now completely sold out.

Celebrities Love Alexander McQueen

Thandie Newton loves British designers and showed her love for McQueen by wearing the striped pumps to the London premiere of Run, Fat Boy, Run back in 2007. Jennifer Aniston wore the same pumps together with a beautiful black dress to the Marley & Me press conference in December 2008.

Jessica Simpson “Delsi” Pumps

Shell out $73.60 and these McQueen look-a-likes by Jessica Simpson are yours. The upper material is suede and the heel of the pump is thicker, but it’s still a great alternative to the real deal.

ALDO “Rabenhorst” Peep Toe Pumps

This McQueen look-a-like by ALDO is a very close match to the original pumps. The heel is a bit thicker and not as high though. Plus, the material is patent faux leather.

Daisy Fuentes “Lala” Pumps

Of all the budget versions, these pumps by Daisy Fuentes are my personal favorites. They are the most identical ones to the original pair and the price is reasonable as well.

ASOS Contrast Peep Toe Slingbacks

Believe it or not, but I have found another Alexander McQueen knock-off pair and they cost only $18. The ASOS knockoffs are slingbacks not pumps, but otherwise look almost the same.
