Real vs. Steal – Azzedine Alaïa Stud and Zip Suede Ankle Boots

So I’ve been majorly obsessed with these Azzedine Alaïa booties ever since I saw them on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley earlier this year. Now I sure love most of Alaïa’s shoes, but these were especially fabulous to me. Suede ankle boots are a staple for fall and the studded banana heel with the added decorative zippers is a total head-turner. If only I could afford these gems…

Pelle Moda “Palm” Studded Platform Booties

Pelle Moda has a pretty great Alaïa alternative. It’s not an identical 1:1-match, but the overall look is still very Alaïa. Now I just wished the platform wasn’t quite as dominant and the price tag a tad lower. Thanks to our reader Devon for reminding me about these fabulous Alaïa look-a-likes!

VANELi “Candice” Studded Suede Ankle Boots

I found another Alaïa inspired optionon Amazon, but you have to be a bit careful with that one as I’m not completely sure if this is actually a bootie by VANELi. On the Amazon website you see this particular style pictured along with plain ankle boots. Someone’s mixed up two completely different shoe styles I guess, so be careful that you get the right shoe in case you plan to oder it.
