Some shoes need time to grow on me. Case in point: Acne’s Atacoma Wedges. Or these strappy wedges by Ash. At first I thought they’d look clunky on, but then I saw Amber from Amber’s Notebook sporting them and quickly changed my mind. Too bad they’re all sold out now.

Gunmetal “Lowtus” Strappy Peep-toe Wedges

Update (08/12/2013): After 3 years I stumbled upon these spot-on Ash Lotus look-a-likes by Gunmetal. They even didn’t care to change the shoe name all too much: “Lowtus” – “Lotus”.

Not digging the $100 price of the Aldo wedges? Then how about these Ash knockoffs by Charles Albert? They’re spot-on compared to the originals and cost only $44.

If you really try to save some cash here, then these wedges by Qupid might be for you. Again, these are dead-on knockoffs, but cost only a fraction of the originals’ price. Available in black, beige, brown & mauve.
