Gianvito Rossi

Update: This post has been updated on September 23, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

When it comes to designer shoes, I do love big names such as Louboutin, Zanotti and Blahnik, but Gianvito Rossi is my newest discovery and probably a big name soon himself. Admittedly, he’s actually not much of a newbie, but I feel like this brand has risen its profile drastically lately. Rossi shoes are a big thing now and you can find them in almost any designer fashion store nowadays. Looking at shoes like the one pictured below, Rossi’s success doesn’t really surprise me. His aesthetic vision is clear, his designs meticulous and the craftmanship superb (it’s “Made in Italy”, after all!). Too bad all this shoe goodness comes with a matching price tag.

Gianvito Rossi has easily become one of my favorite shoe designers in the last couple years. His last few collections have all been absolutely wonderful and I loved almost every one of Rossi’s shoe styles! Including this summery, nude high heel sandal. I really like how Kim paired hers with both casual and more dressy outfits. Too bad these darlings come with a price tag of $995. Not really my kind of shoe shopping budget, I’m afraid.

Heart Soul “Devina” Strappy Dress Heels

Luckily, these Gianvito Rossi dupes by Heart Soul fit totally into my budget. They look so much like their designer counterparts, don’t they? But the best part is that they are currently on sale for a wallet-friendly $49.99! Just don’t expect the same quality from these faux leather heels as from the designer originals made in Italy.

So this black and white sandal bootie by Gianvito Rossi might seem familiar to you because we’ve recently featured a similar two-tone style from the very same collection. I’m really, really into black and white lately, so this heel is right up my alley. The price however? Not so much.

Ivanka Trump “Derry” Two-Tone Cut-Out Peep-Toe Booties

Well, well, now look at this lovely little Ivanka Trump sandal. It’s not a dupe per se and has a few minor differences, but it’s obviously inspired by the Gianvito Rossi heels above. Priced at only $120 (sale price!) instead of $1.200, I’d totally snap up this steal! Also available in black and nude lace and gold leather.

OMG! How ah-mazing are these OTK gladiator high heel sandals by Altuzarra? Some might say these are a little too Xena, but, personally, I love the warrior princess look and feel of these Gianvito Rossi designed heels. So hot and sexy! And incredibly expensive, too. These come with a price tag of $2.715, my loves! Oh my, oh my!

Chinese Laundry “Three Pointer” Mid-Calf Gladiator High Heel Sandals

There’s no way you could expect the same detail work that went into the Altuzarra designer heels in a $100 budget version, but Chinese Laundry have come up with a pretty neat alternative! Check out CL’s “Three Pointer” – a mid-calf gladiator high heel sandal that looks heavily inspired by Altuzarra’s caged OTK heels. I really like the price on these and think that the shorter length is also way more practical and less over-the-top than the designer over-the-knee original.

So we’ve already told you that monochrome graphic print will still be going strong in 2014. And these lovely Gianvito Rossi sandal booties would be a great way to incorporate the black & white trend. I love the colorblocked pattern with the strategical cut-outs here and there. Too bad these beauties cost almost $1.000!
