Update: This post has been updated on April 11, 2014. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Ever since seeing these on the runway and in ads reminiscent of glamorous ice cream parlors, these gorgeous Louis Vuitton heels have been on my mind. The metal toe is such a fresh new take on the classic pump, and the color combinations are heavenly. Just think of how easily you can wear these with a suit, jeans, a cocktail dress or full skirt! But not only are they as versatile as can be, they also make legs look miles long! My favorite shade is the beige, but you should choose yours based on what you already have in your closet. Do you love wearing dark colors? Then perhaps the black is your best bet. Think maybe a little mint tone would shake up your mostly khaki/cream wardrobe, then give it a try. It looks like celebrities really love them in white too! The price is very steep though, so if you’re mad for them, check out some astonishingly similar styles further down the page.

Chinese Laundry “Danger Zone” Cap-Toe Pumps

First up is the least expensive pair by Chinese Laundry. I’ve always liked this brand. They have great party shoes and you can usually count on them being well made and on-trend. Since these are $99.95 each, it’s not a crazy deal, but not too bad considering the original price tag. Just think about how you might wear the nude pair with a monochromatic ensemble like what we’ve seen on the runway this season. Or consider wearing the black pump with the gold toe during fall with a sleek silhouette including a jewel-toned peplum top, black leather skirt and a bold metal cuff.

Diavolina “Attica” Cap-Toe Pumps

The other option is by Diavolina and costs just a bit more than the style right above. The heel is higher and skinnier though, which definitely makes for a leaner look. We found these on Australia’s awesome online shoe store, StyleTread. It looks like the black version is almost identical to the designer original with the silver toe! It’s too bad the mint and white versions are not available, but I’d say most of us would get the best use out of these two shades. So if these are for you, make sure you add a little bit of something metallic somewhere else in your outfit, but otherwise keep accessories simple to let them really stand out.

Steve Madden “ILUSSION” Cap-Toe Pumps

Steve Madden‘s “ILUSSION” Pumps also have a very LV-like look though the cap-toe isn’t made of metal. They retail at $99.95 including free shipping.

Nicholas “Amore” Cap-Toe Pumps

If you prefer the white Merry-Go-Round Pumps, here’s a pretty good alternative by Nicholas which, unfortunately, is a little pricey at $259 (now on sale for $181.30). However, these pumps have a very elegant and sophisticated look and might be worth the investment if you can get a lot of wear out of them.

Well, hello there, beautiful! Now isn’t this silver striped ankle strap high heel sandal by Saint Laurent a real beauty? I must say I’m quite in love with it. I especially love the huge ankle strap buckle, it has become quite the signature detail for Saint Laurent footwear lately, don’t you agree? Too bad these heels are a) expensive and b) sold out!

Fergie “Torcha” Striped Ankle-Strap Heels

Now I know these Fergie high heel sandals are not an 1:1 dupe because they’re missing the buckle, the stripes don’t go down the heel and they’re black/white colored rather than silver/black. However, the overall look still screams Saint Laurent to me, plus these heels are currently on sale for affordable $22.50 so there really isn’t a reason to complain here!

Can we agree that we’re all on the same page regarding these Jason Wu strappy heels? Because I have only one word for them: supermegaawesomesexy! Well, I have two words in fact: supermegaawesomesexy and expensive. $1.195 kind-of-expensive to be exact.

Heart Soul “Darielle” Woven High Heel Sandals

Oh, Heart Soul how can we thank you for bringing us the pricey look of Jason Wu for a reasonable budget price! Just look at these lovely faux-leather heels which are currently on sale for under $60! Almost perfect dupes I’d say. Available in either black or natural faux leather.

Another alternative I’ve come across which, to me, looks like it’s loosely inspired by Jason Wu are these woven strappy sandals by Ivanka Trump. Available in black or tan leather.

I’m such a fan of tortoise! Like big time! I have so many tortoise sunglasses at home, but tortoise shoes? Nope. So naturally, when I first spotted these gorgeous tortoise pointed toe stilletos by footwear designer legend Manolo Blahnik I instantly fell in love. And I guess I’m not the only as model Miranda Kerr seems to love her tortoise Blahnik heels just as much and has worn them quite often already.

Diane von Furstenberg “Bethany” Tortoise Patent Dress Pumps

The Manolos are admittedly not the priciest pair of designer shoes we’ve ever featured on this blog, but if you can save half the price, why not? These tortoise pumps by Diane von Furstenberg are not exactly wallet-friendly at $325, but they do look super similar to the Blahnik heels and are still a good $270 cheaper. So which of the shoes would be your pick?

Heels like this one are one of the many reasons why I just freakin’ love Giuseppe Zanotti! Seriously, how much better can it get than these red patent stiletto pumps with a mirrored silver heel? This is what I call absolute shoe perfection! Sure, with its high vamp these look extremely painful to walk in, but us women we don’t wear high heels for the comfort factor, now do we? If I had a spare $650 laying around, I’d so have bought these fire red darlings already!

Steve Madden “LIPSTYCK” Stiletto Pumps

Well, well, now what do we have here? How about an almost perfect looking Zanotti twin by Steve Madden? The design is staggeringly similar; I’d even say it’s an almost indistinguishable 1:1 copy of the super sexy Zanotti stiletto pump. I think I finally figured out what I want for christmas… (no, not a man, Mariah, but shoes, of course; and these in particular). Get them as well before they sell out which I predict to happen very quickly.
