Stuart Weitzman + over-the-knee boots is apparently a foolproof formula for commercial success! Don’t believe me? Just look at all the various fab fashion bloggers rocking their Stuart Weitzman OTK boots below! It all started with the iconic “5050” and is now followed by Weitzman’s next set of super hit boots: the “Highland” (which we have already written about a few weeks ago, see the post here) and the “Lowland” which we are featuring in today’s Real vs. Steal post. Both boots are almost identical in design, but have either a flat heel (Lowland) or a high heel (Highland, d’uh!). It’s certainly not the first pair of OTK suede boots we’ve seen come out in the last couple of years, but definitely the most successful and coveted one (we’re still counting the reader requests for this one). As with Stuart Weitzman shoes in general, they don’t come cheap. Especially not the boots and especially not the over-the-knee kind of boots. These beauties here – please hold your breath here – cost $798! Yup, I cried a little too when I saw that price tag. Luckily, we were able to find a couple of fantastic dupes that will save you the trouble of having to rob a bank to sport this season’s hottest trend.

Dolce Vita “Neely” Flat Over-The-Knee Boots

My personal favorite first: the “Neely” boot from Dolce Vita, a spot-on “Lowland” dupe with very positive customer reviews for roughly 1/4 of the real deal’s price. At $200, it sure isn’t a steal find and probably won’t be an impulse buy for anyone here, but if you like the style I suggest you better hurry up with your purchase.

Aldo “Barra” Lace-Back Suede Over-The-Knee Boots

Next up is a boot by Aldo. “Barra” is also spot-on in terms of design when compared to the Lowland. It’s $110 cheaper than the Dolce Vita version, but the reviews for this one are also rather mixed. Anyway, if you want to give it a try, these boots come in either taupe or black suede.

Steve Madden “Odina” Flat Suede Over-The-Knee Boots

Of course Steve Madden couldn’t miss the opportunity to join in on this knock-off game as well! “Odina”, like the other Lowland look-alikes above, is nearly identical to the real deal, but costs only $149.95. Though I do have to add that this boot has a fabric upper unlike the dupes above which are made of genuine leather.

Choies Stretch Suedette Over-The-Knee Boots

Still not in the mood to pay that much for faux leather boots? Well, then how about these Lowland dupes by Choies for a little over $50? Same design, veeeeery different price tag and the customers seem to love this one, too.

Schutz “Lois” Suede Flat Over-The-Knee Boots

And lastly, Schutz. Another absolutely fabulous and spot-on look for less alternative for Stuart Weitzman’s “Lowland”. And not too expensive either at $125 (sale price!) as well! Unfortunately though, they’re almost sold out at Shopbop and I couldn’t find any other retailer stocking this beautiful boot (boohoo!).

If you are familiar with the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you will all remember the studded Chloé Susan (also sometimes called “Susanna” or “Suzanna”) ankle boots below as they’ve created quite a buzz among fashion bloggers in 2009. Even though they cost more than a grand, people bought them like crazy and the boots soon were sold out everywhere.

The studded ankle boots were part of Chloé’s Pre-Fall 2008 collection and came in an array of colors like red, white, black and green (my personal favorite!).

Kate Bosworth & Sienna Miller Love Chloé

Famous fashionistas Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller both sported the studded ankle boots in red. Kate was literally obsessed with those boots and wore them whenever possible last year. And can we blame her? They are so cute and both women looked absolutely fabulous wearing them, didn’t they?

Update (09/20/2016): Run, don’t walk and get these kickass Chloé dupes by L’idea by Lori ASAP because these beauties are by far the best and most spot-on Chloé Susanna knockoffs I’ve seen yet! They do come at a price, yes, but just look at the quality and all the details – a splurge worth making if you ask me.

Jeffrey Campbell “Starburst” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (05/30/2012): Jeffrey Campbell‘s highly-coveted “Starburst” booties are now available for European fans for at British shoe e-tailer Office. Better get them quick before they sell out!

Free People always seems to get the best Jeffrey Campbell styles. First they got the awesome Ann Deumeulemeester lace-up boots and now they sell knockoffs of the iconic Chloé studded ankle boots (Free People call this style “Northern Lights” while JC and other retailers named it “Starburst”). Don’t they look almost identical? The heel is a bit off, but the studs and buckles are pretty close to the original. The only downsides are that the Jeffrey Campbell studded booties don’t come in red. But the boots are available in black, white and brown, so if you always wanted a budget-friendlier alternative, these Jeffrey Campbell knockoffs are probably your last and only chance as the Chloé booties are a couple of seasons old now.

Leave it to Chanel to make us crave those #grannyshoes we all deemed ugly when we were teenagers. And if it weren’t for Chanel and the iconic CC-logo on the side of the heel, I doubt these would have been quite as popular as they are right now, but even though I know the greater part of the allure of these shoes can be traced back to just being by Chanel, I somehow still understand why so many bloggers and fashion insiders are so in love with these. The two-tone cap-toe, the mid-height block heel, the convenient slingback; it’s the perfect example of 50s retro chic and an absolute timeless classic. By pairing these shoes with modern pieces such as ripped skinny jeans or a cool biker jacket, you will keep yourself from looking like an actual granny in these. And while I don’t know what the exact retail price is for these, we’re talking about Chanel here after all, so I think it’s safe to say that they’re expensive. And apparently very hard to get ahold of these days.

Office “Maddie” Slingback Toe Cap Block Heels

And one last Chanel alternative for all my lovely UK readers. Now these beige/black suede slingbacks from Office might not be an identical dupe, but they’re still close enough to serve as a great Chanel look for less, wouldn’t you agree? Plus, there’s also a closed back version named “Madison” available here which costs £65 as well.

Chances are you’re already pretty familiar with these double-strapped ribbon tie ballerina flats by Miu Miu because these ballerinas are the “It shoe” of the summer and the latest shoe trend to take over our fashion feeds. As you can see below some of our favorite bloggers and IGers have already been prancing the streets in those cute and quirky ballet flats channeling their inner prima ballerina. I must admit I haven’t been actively following Miu Miu’s collections for a while now, but these shoes made me fall in love with Miuccia Prada’s younger fashion line all over again. I just love how the belted straps toughen up the otherwise overly sweet ballerina design thus giving them an edgy and modern vibe while at the same time still maintaining a classic and feminine look. Also, how cool is the idea of wearing them with mismatched ribbon laces? Pure genius and so refreshingly new and creative! Naturally, we’ve gotten quite a few requests to find budget-friendly alternatives for these much sought after Miu Miu flats because a) these babies cost a whopping $620 and b) the popular versions like the nude one for example are basically sold out everywhere anyway. Ergo: challenge accepted!

Steve Madden “Meow” Ribbon Tie Ballerina Flats

Last but not least are these lace-up flats by Steve Madden. They don’t have the buckled front straps like the real deal and thus are more of an “inspired by Miu Miu“-kind, but they do come with two sets of interchangeable ribbon laces, so the overall look is still very much Miu Miu without them being a blatant copy. Also how buttery soft does the blush leather look like here? Amazing for $69.95, no? Other available color options include black and silver metallic.

I must say: Hats off to Chanel for being able to reinvent the classic ol’ granny shoe and reliven the outdated shoe while casually turning a blast from the past into a massive and worldwide shoe hype that is now gracing the feet of fashion lovers, editors and pretty much every fashion influencer under the sun. I really can’t remember how often I’ve seen Chanel’s infamous two-tone cap-toe slingbacks (or their look-alikes, respectively) lately. They are everywhere; in magazines, on blogs, social media, the streets and on the red carpet. There’s no escaping the Chanel granny shoe and I really don’t mind. While sceptical at first, I definitely have warmed up to the trend now and am loving the enormous influx of grandma inspired cap-toe shoes we’re currently seeing popping up everywhere. And while I do love the laissez-faire style of the highly popular slingback version, for Fall, I do prefer a shoe with a closed back, so these block heel pumps below would be a perfect addition to my Fall wardrobe. But whom are we kidding? This is Chanel we’re talking about and even though I don’t know what the retail price is on these beauties here, I’m quite certain my shopping budget isn’t nowhere near as opulent as it would have to be in order for me to be able to afford the real deal.

Ivanka Trump “Lindi” Two-Tone Block Heel Pumps

Deal: Use promo code “SIGNATURE” to get 20% off regular and sale price items at Lord & Taylor! Offer valid through September 27th at 11:59PM EST.

After having so much success with their Chanel slingback dupe “Liah”, I guess Ivanka Trump decided they weren’t quite done with riding that Chanel granny shoe trend train yet and so they came out with “Lindi”, a very Chanel-esque cap-toe pump which is basically the identical sister of “Liah” but in a non-slingback version. “Lindi” comes in either beige/black leather or suede and is also available in other colors such as burgundy, black and navy (suede). Like “Liah”, “Lindi” retails for $124.95; which seems like a reasonable price for such a spot-on Chanel dupe made of genuine leather. Don’t wait too long with your purchase though as I’m pretty sure these will be similarly popular as Trump’s “Liah” slingbacks, so make your order before your size goes out of stock and while you’re at it, make sure to check out “Jocelynls” as well, it’s the ballerina flat version of “Liah” and “Lindi”.
