When thinking of Christian Louboutin shoes we inevitably associate the brand with sky-high stiletto heels, but did you know Monsieur Louboutin also designs some very fashionable flats? Case in point: these strass-encrusted lace-up sneakers named “Louis”. We have previously written about the spike-stud version, but I think my favorite would have to be this one because of its super sparkly nature. But, whoah, have you seen that enormous price tag of $2.595? Can’t afford that unfortunately.

I have yet to come across an Alaïa shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at Net-A-Porter (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Alaïa heels! Too bad it probably won’t be these ones.

It’s mostly all about high end designer fashion here on this blog, but once in a while a trend is born right among us in the budget fashion sector. Case in point: these vividly blue Zara slingback high heel sandals. I feel like I’ve seen these strappy heels a thousand times on Instagram this year and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since I first saw them on the Zara website. They weren’t expensive at $79.90, but unfortunately these heels sold out so fast that many didn’t get a chance to buy them in the first place, me included. I then tried to hunt them down on eBayebay, but the asking prices of $100+ (for used shoes!) were absolutely ridiculous! So I was slowly coming to terms that I would have to let these beauties go. Luckily, I was wrong!

Fashion Union Lace Up Heels

Update (10/10/2015): Discovered another Zara dupe today! This one’s by Fashion Union and I kinda think this a rebranded version of the Missguided heel below.

If you missed out on the Zara heels and are not willing to shell out more than the original price, you’ve come to the right place. Because I just happened to stumble upon these spot-on Zara dupes at Missguided. They’re absolutely identical in terms of design and color, plus they’re $40 cheaper than the Zara version. Personally, it’s all about the vibrant blue color for me, but these heels are also available in nude, black and berry red faux suede if these colors are more to your liking.

These heels by Casadei are nothing short of fierce, a perfect blend of minimalistic steel with curvaceously constructed leather. If these shoes were inspired by a piece of furniture, I’d guess it was the sultry Barcelona Chair by Mies van der Rohe. Only thing is, the now sold-out pair cost almost as much! But of course, we always have another option, so see for yourself what an amazing deal we found below.

Walk with confidence with these gorgeous look-a-likes by Chinese Laundry, which are just as dangerously sultry as the original design. They’ll be perfect to wear with this season’s leather leggings or a fitted pencil skirt, just keep your top feminine and choose a softer fabric to help balance out the shoe’s edgier feel. Add one other architecturally-inspired accessory, such as a bold metal cuff, and brace yourself for endless compliments!

What can I say about these cone-heel leather mix booties by Iro other than they are utter perfection? I just have a soft spot for ankle boots; can’t help it! These here have a certain Isabel Marant vibe (“Andrew” or “Otway“, anyone?) and we all know that Madame Marant makes for some lustworthy shoes. Iro is a French designer brand and hasn’t really been on my fashion radar yet, but judging by their gorgeous footwear (which is currently a little Marant-esque) I should change that stat! Too bad their price range doesn’t really match my shopping budget.

Steve Madden “POWERWLK” Ankle Boots

When I wrote a Real vs. Steal post on Isabel Marant’s “Andrew” booties two weeks ago, one of our readers suggested that Steve Madden‘s “POWERWLK” ankle boots would also be a good fit for a steal deal. But when I took a look at said boots, I immediately recognized that these are supposed to be a dupe of Iro’s “Keira” booties. Either way, it’s a great looking shoe and an almost identical dupe match for the Iro booties above. Score!
