These shoes aren’t meant for long walks, but rather, to be candy for the feet. Slick and feminine, these heels by Jimmy Choo are definitely built for style. But aren’t there times in our lives when the Wow!-factor is exactly what we crave? Okay, there are many times – and for those instances, shoes like these were made. But is the price tag worth the amount of mileage they’ll get compared to the rest of your collection? We can relate, so keep an eye out for a copycat below.

Aldo “Fravel” Stiletto Pumps

Not only do these more affordable heels by Aldo fit our show-stopping needs, but just how amazing are they in bright fuchsia and tangerine? So, if you are eager to put them on display, start by wearing them to dinner and sitting at the bar. Remember to keep the rest of your outfit simple, so all eyes will be on those amazing heels. Want to add even more allure? Pick up a lipgloss or nail polish (if you went for the black pair) in a similar shade.

I’m still not cool with “Yves” being stripped from Saint Laurent, but I am definitely cool with the creative direction Hedi Slimane is taking the French fashion house. The shoes are especially fabulous. I really like the angular design of these black ankle boots. So chic! And expensive. Le sigh!

Steve Madden “DEVIL” High Heel Ankle Boots

Oh, Steve Madden – you are a “DEVIL” indeed! The description of these pointed-toe booties says “So sexy it’s just plain evil!” – well, I say “So close to the original, it’s just plain copying!“. Not that I mind too much though since the price tag of these $63.89 (sale price!) black booties is much easier to handle than the $950 one of the original Saint Laurent heels. Pre-order these beauties now if you want your Saint Laurent fix for less and have them ready when Fall comes around the corner!

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 can’t be these ones.

So I’ve been majorly obsessed with these Azzedine Alaïa booties ever since I saw them on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley earlier this year. Now I sure love most of Alaïa’s shoes, but these were especially fabulous to me. Suede ankle boots are a staple for fall and the studded banana heel with the added decorative zippers is a total head-turner. If only I could afford these gems…

Pelle Moda “Palm” Studded Platform Booties

Pelle Moda has a pretty great Alaïa alternative. It’s not an identical 1:1-match, but the overall look is still very Alaïa. Now I just wished the platform wasn’t quite as dominant and the price tag a tad lower. Thanks to our reader Devon for reminding me about these fabulous Alaïa look-a-likes!

VANELi “Candice” Studded Suede Ankle Boots

I found another Alaïa inspired optionon Amazon, but you have to be a bit careful with that one as I’m not completely sure if this is actually a bootie by VANELi. On the Amazon website you see this particular style pictured along with plain ankle boots. Someone’s mixed up two completely different shoe styles I guess, so be careful that you get the right shoe in case you plan to oder it.

I’ve just taken a look at the last few dozen blog posts and realized it’s been months too long since we last had a good ol’ Christian Louboutin Real vs. Steal here on this blog. So here you go: I’m quite in love with this beauty of a cutout high heel ankle bootie! So chic and classic yet the cutouts add a bit of an edge! I much prefer Monsieur Louboutin doing “classic with a twist” than those flashy uber-modern designs that he’s been doing the last couple seasons. Too bad I can’t afford to splurge on these high heeled beauties. Le sigh!

Anne Michelle Rapture-25 Cutout Ankle Booties

Well, hello there Rapture-25 by Anne Michelle! Nice to meet you. Has anyone ever told you you look a lot like Christian Louboutin’s “Cachottiere”? No? But it’s true. OK, you’re not French and might not be quite as delicate as your luxurious twin sister, but your price tag of $29.90 is way easier to handle than the designer’s steep price of $995 (ouch!). Also available in nude beige.
