Shoes

Remember the mega craze for Tory Burch‘s highly-coveted “Reva” ballet flats a few years back? Well, the hype around these logo medallion-adorned classic flats may have died down a little since, but it’s still a very lovely and versatile shoe worth having in your wardrobe. And at $225 per pair these shoes are rather on the lower price spectrum of designer shoes we’ve featured here over the years.

Audrey Brooke “Kristin” Ballet Flats

If you can’t or don’t want to spend more than $200 on a pair of basic flats, here’s a great alternative by Audrey Brooke which will give you the luxurious look of Tory Burch for under $60. Also available in various other colors and uppers.

ALDO “Chaya” Ballet Flats

I also found these flats by ALDO which are also obviously inspired by Tory Burch’s Reva ballerina flats. At $70 they’re slightly more expensive than the Audrey Brooke version, but the ALDO flats are also made of real leather which the Audrey Brooke ones are not.

If you think of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, the first one to spring to mind is probably the iconic “Varacj” pump – a one-inch heeled patent ballet-style bow-adorned shoe. This shoe was first introduced in 1978 by Fiamma Ferragamo, the daughter of Salvatore, and has gained a lot of recognition among celebrities like Princess Diana for example. “Varina” is a spin-off of Vara, a more casual and modern designed ballerina flat with a lovely grosgrain bow on the vamp, which has been around since 2007. I’m usually not a fan of ballet flats, but these are so gorgeous and the quality looks absolutely superb, don’t you agree? I’d so love to own these ($450 isn’t that expensive for a pair of made in Italy designer shoes nowadays). If only I had that kind of shopping budget.

ALDO “Juricek” Ballerina Bow Flats

If you can’t afford Italian luxury, but still want Italian style, here’s a fantastic alternative I found at ALDO which looks so similar to Ferragamo’s “Varina” flats. Price point: $70 and the “Juricek” flats come also in bone and black leather.

UPDATE: This post has been updated on October 17, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

The shoe which can be worn all year long, weather-permitting in some cases, is this “Lisse” Side Cutout Ankle Boot by Christian Louboutin. It features a rounded toe, super sleek high heel, and a slight cutout on the side hence its name. Though it is so minimalistic, it is similarly just as flattering yet it merely exudes a luxurious look. Although the one featured below is leather, it is also available in blue suede which lends itself well to warmer climate. And since it is an ankle boot, one can really wear anything with it. The major downside is the colossal price tag of $895; therefore, we have a great steal below!

BCBGeneration “Hellen” Suede Ankle Booties

UPDATE (10/17/2013): Came across these Louboutin inspired suede booties by BCBGeneration. My gut feeling tells me it’s a rebranded version of the Sole Society booties below. “Hellen” vs. “Helena”. $99.95 vs. $79.95!

Sole Society “Helena” Low Cut Booties

UPDATE (03/19/2013): Just stumbled upon these amazingly similar low cut booties by Sole Society which are made of real leather and cost only $69.95! Available in black leather or dark red suede. Absolutely love these!

Paris Hilton “Abigail” Ankle Booties

These “Abigail” Ankle Booties are practically identical to the Louboutins, but come at a much more affordable price of $114.99. It’s amazing how similar-looking the two shoes are, considering that these booties are by Paris Hilton while the ones above are by Louboutin. They feature a slight cutout on the side, a semi-rounded toe, and, of course, have a stellar heel just like the designer beauties. Aside from the black leather featured below, these are also available in grey and brown leather. Also, what is particularly interesting is that these heels have pink soles which mimic the classic red-sole Louboutin look even more.

We’ve written quite a few times about Tabitha Simmons shoes already and today is another one of these days where we just have to once more gush about the fabulousness of her shoes. Take a look at her “Wicked” boot for example – instant shoe love, isn’t it? It’s one of these shoes that has to be seen worn to be fully appreciated. I l-o-v-e how Mel C. wears hers with bare legs, a wool coat and a mini dress. So classy yet sexy! These booties used to retail for as much as $1.575 but are now marked down to (still quite steep) $629.

London Trash “Della” Studded Lace-Up High Heel Booties

The “Della” boot by London Trash is no identical match to the Tabitha Simmons ankle booties, but you can definitely see the inspiration here. I usually always prefer the designer shoe, but in this case I prefer the stud details of the steal version. Well, I wouldn’t really consider it a steal at almost $200, but it is a great alternative that will save you a lot of cash in comparison to the designer heels. Available in black leather and leopard print (at NORDSTROM).

2 Lips Too “Too Tumble” Booties

Another wallet-friendly alternative, though admittedly only loosely inspired by Simmons, are these faux suede studded platform booties by 2 Lips Too.

It was only recently that we have written about how lace up heels have been quite the trend this year. And just when I was about to let this one go and slowly started concentrating on fall footwear, I accidentally came across this laced up beauty by Tom Ford and it was over. What can I say? I am majorly obsessed! The corset-like lace up front silhouette is incredibly sexy, don’t you agree? You know what else is incredible? The astronomical price tag of $1.250 (which, admittedly, is rather on the cheaper side for Tom Ford shoes though).

Jeffrey Campbell “Enable” Lace-Up High Heel Sandals

Since there’s no way I could afford the Tom Ford heels above, I have to turn to the usual suspects when it comes to designer inspired shoes. And in this case it’s Jeffrey Campbell who delivers. I think it is the first time JC doing Tom Ford, but I’m liking what I see so far! “Enable” is Campbell’s homage to Tom Ford’s sexy lace up high heels. The overall design is very similar to Ford’s, I just wish the heel on the JC version were a bit skinnier. But oh well, you can’t have it all I guess.
