Thigh-high boots are dangerous territory because they can easily look…well, wrong. Think cheap-y and stripperish! But let us not judge too hasty here because over-the-knee boots can also look super hot and fabulous. Case in point? These Christian Louboutin OTK boots. The black suede tones down the Pretty Woman resemblance factor by quite a bit while the lacing detail gives them a vintage Victorian feel. These are thigh-high boots done right, but oh, $1.995 for a pair? I think I’ll have to pass this time!

Jeffrey Campbell “Battalion” Over-the-knee Boots

So you want Louboutin style but for less – a lot less – right? Well, worry not, Jeffrey Campbell has got you covered. Don’t be fooled though, the “Battalion” boots are still pretty pricey at $370, but you do get to save a neat $1.625 in comparison to the real deal.

So can we all agree that these Jimmy Choo heels are absolutely killer? I love, love, love the sexy, bondage-like look that is going on here. So lustworthy and super hot in fire red suede, too! What’s not to love? Well, the price tag obviously. €695 – that’s over $900 and thus definitely breaks my personal budget. Yours, too? If so, keep on reading to find a great alternative for much, much less.

Diavolina “Jazz” Lattice T-Bar Open Toe Sandals

So yeah, do you see any differences between the Choos above and these fab Choo doppelgängers by Diavolina here (apart from the branding, of course)? Because I honestly can’t spot any, well, besides the price difference (the Diavolina heels retail for a much friendlier price of $84.98 AUD (= Australian Dollar, in case you didn’t knew)). So are we great or are we great? ;-)

Never was there a more comfortable heel for those of us who rarely wear flats. This design by Burberry has all the sophistication and allure of stilettos but thanks to the high platform and ankle straps, the stairs in your office building will be less daunting. This pair will get you so much mileage because you’ll be able to wear them with all of your wide leg pants and trousers! Simply add a signature black tote with gold hardware and you’ll be all set. The price is a bit steep though, so if you rather not spend your whole shoe budget on them, we can help with an amazing steal below!

Steve Madden “CRITIKAL” Buckled Sandals

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “SMJUL1” to get $15 off orders of $80 or more at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 07/31/2013. Some exclusions apply.

How amazing is this pair by Steve Madden for only a fraction of the price? They have the same details, with just a few modifications: silver vs. gold hardware and a slightly shorter heel. But other than that they are almost identical! Upon closer look, I think a pencil skirt and a white blouse would look fantastic with these. Finish the outfit with a handbag similar to Stella McCartney’s Falabella, and keep the rest of your accessories modern and minimal: perhaps add a set of silver bangles and that’s it. More great news? They are also available in cognac and white leather.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll probably know that – apart from a few occasional exceptions – I’m a great fan of Giuseppe Zanotti‘s shoe designs. For example, I loved to see all the metal-plated heels (or flats for that matter) which were one of Zanotti’s key design elements in his S/S 2012 collection. It’s such a nice and interesting detail which instantly sexifies the shoe (just look at all the celebs below working it in these metal-plated Zanotti heels). I wish I had an inexhaustible shopping budget so I could show Signore Zanotti some love!

Steve Madden “ATENTION” Plated T-Strap Platform Sandals

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “JANSM1” to get 15% off orders of $100+ or “JANSM8” for 20% off orders of $150+ at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 01/31/2014. Some exclusions apply.

If you’re a Zanotti fan and are looking for a similar design, Steve Madden‘s “ATENTION” heels are a good start. They’re not a spot-on dupe and I wish they hadn’t such a high platform, but they still look pretty similar to the designer version. Make sure to use the promo code above to save some bucks along the way!
