While I never really warmed up to the wedge sneaker trend started by Isabel Marant, I must admit that I really liked Marant’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Especially the shoes! I even considered getting the studded “Caleen” booties pictured below, but since I can’t afford designer shoes full price, I had to wait until they went on sale and well, try getting size 9 Isabel Marant shoes on sale. Absolutely no luck for me this time!

Mossimo Supply Co. “Karis” Studded Ankle Boots

UPDATE (11/29/2013): Also came across these studded boots by Mossimo Supply Co. which are more of a dupe of the Steve Madden booties above than of the original Marants, but since Madden copied Marant, you could say that therefore Mossimo Supply Co. copied Marant as well.

Et voilà, check out these super fabulous Isabel Marant Caleen look-a-likes by Jessica Buurman! They are not a spot-on dupe of the Marant booties, but still close enough I think. $99-129 and available in either black or white.

Choies Studded Western Boots

Another great Marant alternative are these studded boots by Choies. The shaft on these is slightly higher than on the designer originals, but overall they look pretty much alike! Available in black or white leather.

Unique prints and futuristic designs such as these holographic pumps by Stella McCartney are making a big impression this season. They are untraditional with a shiny-like hue due to the fusion of multiple colors making the shoe appear multidimensional and digitally enhanced. These pumps give off quite the cool vibe because they are so unusual and feature an extraordinary concept. Although these heels may not be the typical go-to shoe, the neutral silver tone lends itself well with being paired with multiple colors and patterns. For an affordable look-a-like, check out the pumps below.

Forever 21 Pointed Hologram Pumps

For an ultra-shiny and futuristic-looking shoe, the Forever 21 Pointed Hologram Pumps are the perfect addition to one’s footwear collection. Priced at $16.99, these pumps are very affordable, especially in comparison with the designer version. Although this silvery colored version is very wearable and mimics the designer heels above most closely in color, these pumps are also available in rose metallic and gunmetal. The gunmetal hue is a bit more edgy while the rose metallic features a romantic light pink hue which isn’t overly girly, but is rather chic with a touch of femininity.

Oh how I love Kate Bosworth‘s sense of style. She always looks so effortlessly stylish – both on and off the red carpet. When it comes to off duty dressing, one of Kate’s latest obsessions seem to be Topshop’s “ALETA” Pointed Monk Boots – a pair of shiny black heeled ankle boots with a buckle on the side. She’s been wearing these booties multiple times in the last two months and wouldn’t you agree she looks absolutely fab in these? The good news: they’re only $144 and still available online. I might even get them myself (though what I really don’t need is yet another pair of black ankle boots in my closet)!

We have previously written about Casadei‘s super hot & famous “Blade” stiletto pumps, but I think the patent leather version needs a mention of its own. Now if this isn’t the ultimate “sex on a heel“-type of shoe I don’t know what is. Just look at all the celebs donning these sleek pumps; everyone looks amazing due to their footwear choices. I especially love Jenna Dewan’s fire red Blades. Too bad the patent leather version is all sold out and even if it weren’t you’d still have to shell out more than $700 to make them yours. If this isn’t your kind of shoe shopping budget (I know it ain’t mine), keep on reading to find an amazing look-a-like below.

Chinese Laundry “Maserati” Stiletto Pumps

Once again, Chinese Laundry has a “Blade” design of their own. The “Maserati” pumps which come in either red, black or nude patent leather look almost exactly like their high-end designer counterparts but cost only $150 instead of $740. Sizes are already pretty limited, however, I’m sure these are going to be restocked very soon, so keep on checking the website if your size isn’t available. I’ll also add further shops here once they stock this particular shoe style.

When I first saw these studded combat boots and read that they are Saint Laurent, I had to double check it because I wasn’t expecting this drastic change of style from Hedi Slimane. His first womenswear collection for (Y)SL was very classic and feminine and so were the shoes (e.g. “Jane” high heel and “Paris” ankle boot) that it seemed unlikely to me that Slimane would swing in such a different direction within just one season. But obviously I was wrong and Slimane’s second collection for Saint Laurent (F/W 13/14) was screaming nineties grunge all over! And while I prefer Slimane’s first collection over the second one (including the footwear), I must admit that these spike-encrusted boots have a strange appeal that I can’t quite put in words.

Jessica Buurman “KERMT” Studded & Spiked Ankle Boots

UPDATE (10/15/2013): Stumbled upon another super fabulous and almost identical Saint Laurent boot look-a-like at Jessica Buurman. Not a steal at $195, but so close to the original! Plus, if you sign up to the Jessica Buurman newsletter, you get a 10% discount promo code. Shipping is free, by the way. Worldwide.

Jeffrey Campbell “Draco” Strapped Stud Boots

One look at the price tag of the (Y)SL boots and it was clear that there’s no way I could afford them. So what’s the next best thing? Yeah, Jeffrey Campbell and their “Draco” boot. Not a 1:1 dupe but obviously very, very Saint Laurent inspired. At $329.95 this ain’t a steal, but it’s still way cheaper than the Saint Laurent original.
