There’s nothing like having a nude pair of shoes to slide into during the warmer times of the year! It’s such a great color especially when it comes in patent and the color is so versatile it can go with TONS of stuff! So, you can see why these Jimmy Choo Phyllis Espadrille Slides are absolutely noteworthy to be featured! I can’t wait to have my ice cold drink next to the pool while admiring my feet with these bad boys on! Yet, retailing at $375 this might break the bank for some, so here is a more affordable option…

J. Litvack “Malta” Espadrille Wedge Slides

UPDATE (05/01/2014): Discovered another Jimmy Choo inspired espadrille wedge! Check out these wedge slides by J. Litvack. They’re not quite as high as the Jimmy Choos, but the look is still very similar to the real deal. Available in black and nude patent leather for $82.95.

Steve Madden “GENISIS” Espadrilles

This Steve Madden version has a slightly thicker band and a higher platform than the Jimmy Choo version, which I’m sure not everyone will complain about! And the price isn’t too bad either! Available in nude, black and red patent.

I must admit that I’m always on the fence when it comes to designers trying to give their high heels a sporty touch. However, these cut-out lace up sandals by McQ Alexander McQueen somehow strike my interest. But definitely not at $735!

Luckily I happened to come across these McQ-inspired lace-up heels by GUESS which come at a much friendlier price tag (current sale price is $110 for the black version!) and which are also available in natural leathercj.

So who wouldn’t love these absolutely gorgeous nude lace peep-toe pumps by Jimmy Choo? To me they pretty much look like the perfect bridal shoes: romantic, subtle, delicate, sexy and yet not too high with their 4 inch heel and the accompanying 0.5 inch platform. Total dream shoes material, right? If only it wasn’t for the $795 price tag…

Ivanka Trump “Maggie” Lace Peep-Toe Platform Pumps

Ivanka Trump loves Jimmy Choo big time and her brand can be frequently seen copying Choo’s styles; including this one. The color on this one is a bit lighter, but the rest is pretty much spot-on. A beautfiul alternative to the pricey Choos for under $130! Wouldn’t you agree?

I’m pretty sure by now you’ve all seen and and learned about Isabel Marant‘s “Carol” studded sandal since it was quite the “It” shoe among the style bloggers last year. But did you know “Carol” had a little brother named “Cole”? It’s a cute flat stud-embellished sandal, very similar looking to his big sister but with no block heel attached. I especially love the white version here. But $640? Um, thank you, but no, thank you.

Matisse “Isla” Stud Embellished Flat Sandals

If you like the Marant look, but can’t afford the original, here’s an inspired version by Matisse. The sandals don’t come in the exact same colors and have a few minor design differences, but the overall look and feel is still very Marant-ish. Get these for $99 in either black or natural leather.

Ever since seeing these on the runway and in ads reminiscent of glamorous ice cream parlors, these gorgeous Louis Vuitton heels have been on my mind. The metal toe is such a fresh new take on the classic pump, and the color combinations are heavenly. Just think of how easily you can wear these with a suit, jeans, a cocktail dress or full skirt! But not only are they as versatile as can be, they also make legs look miles long! My favorite shade is the beige, but you should choose yours based on what you already have in your closet. Do you love wearing dark colors? Then perhaps the black is your best bet. Think maybe a little mint tone would shake up your mostly khaki/cream wardrobe, then give it a try. It looks like celebrities really love them in white too! The price is very steep though, so if you’re mad for them, check out some astonishingly similar styles further down the page.

Chinese Laundry “Danger Zone” Cap-Toe Pumps

First up is the least expensive pair by Chinese Laundry. I’ve always liked this brand. They have great party shoes and you can usually count on them being well made and on-trend. Since these are $99.95 each, it’s not a crazy deal, but not too bad considering the original price tag. Just think about how you might wear the nude pair with a monochromatic ensemble like what we’ve seen on the runway this season. Or consider wearing the black pump with the gold toe during fall with a sleek silhouette including a jewel-toned peplum top, black leather skirt and a bold metal cuff.

Diavolina “Attica” Cap-Toe Pumps

The other option is by Diavolina and costs just a bit more than the style right above. The heel is higher and skinnier though, which definitely makes for a leaner look. We found these on Australia’s awesome online shoe store, StyleTread. It looks like the black version is almost identical to the designer original with the silver toe! It’s too bad the mint and white versions are not available, but I’d say most of us would get the best use out of these two shades. So if these are for you, make sure you add a little bit of something metallic somewhere else in your outfit, but otherwise keep accessories simple to let them really stand out.

Steve Madden “ILUSSION” Cap-Toe Pumps

Steve Madden‘s “ILUSSION” Pumps also have a very LV-like look though the cap-toe isn’t made of metal. They retail at $99.95 but with the current promo (see above) you can get these for a budget-friendly $79.96 including free shipping.

Nicholas “Amore” Cap-Toe Pumps

If you prefer the white Merry-Go-Round Pumps, here’s a pretty good alternative by Nicholas which, unfortunately, is a little pricey at $259 (now on sale for $181.30). However, these pumps have a very elegant and sophisticated look and might be worth the investment if you can get a lot of wear out of them.
