It’s only March, but I already have started looking for new summer shoes. These nude-colored slingback espadrille wedges by Balenciaga would be a perfect candidate! They look so deliciously summery, don’t they?! I love the leg-lenghtening beige color, the open-toe that can be utilized to show off a fresh pedicure (see celeb picture below) and the wedge which makes wearing 5″ heels more bearable. If only these weren’t $695!

Steven by Steve Madden “JOYRIDE” Slingback Espadrille Wedges

If your wallet can’t handle the price tag of the original Balenciagas, you might find a liking in these Steven by Steve Madden espadrille wedges which are an almost perfect dupe of the Balenciaga shoes. The heel on these is one inch shorter, but that’s probably a good thing since walking around a full day in 5″ heels can be quite the painful affair, even if it’s a wedge heel. $129.95 and you can call them yours! Also available in black leather.

    I’m off topic, but any suggestions how to find lookalikes for Saint Laurent Black leather Nu Pieds Sandals seen on Angelina Jolie, May 13th, 2014 ??? thx!

  • Hi Coleen!

    I did a quick search, no perfect dupes yet, but these ZARA sandals here ($35.90) are the best I could find for right now.

    Hope I could help! 🙂

  • coleen

    Oh, thanks for the quick reply, how nice!

  • Hi Coleen,

    accidentally stumbled upon yet another two possible Saint Laurent alternatives at H&M. Look here and here . Both are under $20! 🙂
