I wonder if – one fine day – I will be the happy owner of a pair of Alexander McQueen heels. I would LOVE to, but thinking that his shoes go for more than 1k per pair, I somehow doubt this is ever going to happen. Not with that kind of budget at least. Anyone out there bothering to tell me the secret of getting rich quick? My shoe addiction refuses to wait any longer to be satisfied.

Madden Girl “Kernal” Zipper Booties

UPDATE (05/27/2010): If you’re wary of high heels, try these “Faithful” knockoffs by Madden Girl. They’re a bit bulky, but the low heel makes them that much more practical for day-to-day wear. The price ain’t too bad either.

ALDO “Haga” Zip Ankle Boots

UPDATE (12/02/2009): Found yet another great alternative to the McQueen booties by Aldo. They are not a complete rip-off, but the inspiration behind these is more than obvious.

Michael Antonio “Monet” Zipper Booties

UPDATE (11/19/2009): Woohoo! I didn’t expect to find a knockoff just as good as the Steve Maddens, but then I stumbled upon these zipper booties by Michael Antonio. They look just as good AND are way cheaper, too. Yay! Also available in brown, berry, grey and red.

Steve Madden “SERYNA” Peep-toe Ankle Boots

I love and hate Steve Madden. Hate because his collection is mostly based on other people’s creativity and LOVE because it makes being fashionable on a budget SO much easier without having to compromise the designer look of a shoe. These Alexander McQueen knockoffs are almost identical, the only thing that’s different is that the zipper isn’t a skull shape, but everything else could pass as the original. The ankle boots are currently on pre-order and will be ready to ship in approx. 4 weeks. However I wouldn’t wait too long to order as this style is probably one of the first to sell out.

If you’ve never worn flats to work because they seem too informal, these pointy confections by Christian Louboutin may just be the anecdote. They are certainly among the most luxurious I’ve ever seen, and yet oddly familiar… like a pair that Holly Golightly might have pulled out from underneath the bed looking for her crocodile shoes in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Of course, although these are fantastic, perhaps you may want to check out the other options below if your budget doesn’t allow for such a large investment.

Ivanka Trump “Annulio” Pointed Flats

This lovely option by Ivanka Trump, is both ladylike and modern at the same time. Perfectly polished for work, and yet they have a little added flirtatiousness to them as well. If there ever was a pair of flats that could look fabulous with a skirt, it’s got to be these. The pointy toe will elongate your legs, while the small heel elevates the foot just enough to give you support, and not completely betraying you at the end of the day with cramped toes. Plus, the patent leather is very easy to maintain. These are currently available in black, coral, lime, burgundy, grey and nude patent leather as well as matte black leather.

J.Crew “Viv” Pointed Patent Flats

Leave it to J.Crew to offer some spring-infused alternatives made from great quality soft leather, and sure to provide a comfortable fit. At $188, they are a little bit more expensive than your average department store option, but you’ll instantly feel the difference in the way these will mold to your feet. If you love wearing stylish flats, consider investing in a quality pair that you’ll keep reaching for year after year! Plus, choosing a bright shade like Kelly Green is a great way to update your favorite weekend skinny jeans.

Report “Gonzalez” Pointed Flats

If you like to have a pair of shoes on standby for those days where you can’t even fathom wearing any kind of heel, the answer is this pair by Report. Perhaps you might try this more matte version with some sleek black leggings and a sweater dress? I definitely love my heels, but this is one very convincing alternative; especially for when I need to look polished, but my toes require a vacation. This pair is available in black, chestnut or nude patent leather.

Pour La Victoire “Bre” Pointed Flats

If you loved the color choices above, check out even more bright options with this beautifully constructed version by Pour La Victoire. While the shape of the shoe does provide a more polished look, you can really have fun and modernize with a some color by combining a fuchsia pair with your classic gray suit. Wear them also with tailored pants, or tapered capris! And why not invite your pretty a-line and full skirts to the party too? Just make sure to keep those skirt hems above the knee for the most flattering silhouette (shoes pictured are available in various colors and uppers).

Christian Louboutin makes some of the finest shoes in the world. Louboutins are a celebrity’s staple buys and no red carpet would be complete without at least one pair of the red-soled high heels. Louboutin’s “Pigalle” pump is timeless with its classic and sleek design. It’s probably Louboutin’s bestselling and most famous shoe ever. Not to mention expensive.

The Highest Heel “Hottie” Pumps

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are. Just look at the extreme high heel or the pointed toe, it looks just like the real deal. And the best thing: they are on sale right now. But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

Let’s talk about wedges for a moment. Just how good are they? I mean, you can either eat or wear them. Pure genius! 😉 All (stale) jokes aside though, wedges are definitely a girl’s best friend. They are the best compromise between extra height and comfort. These slingback espadrille wedges by Céline are admittedly cute, but they don’t really make me want to spend almost $500 on them.
