I don’t know exactly when and why, but over the last few years heeled ankle boots have become my personal shoe kryptonite. For some reason, I don’t seem to be able to let a month go by without buying a new pair of ankle boots. I’ll usually go for pairs-with-everything black, but occasionally my “adventurous” side will get the better of me and I’ll opt for a softer, less safe shade like tan, taupe or grey. So when I first saw these beautiful, neutral-colored suede ankle boots by Saint Laurent, I was instantly smitten. They’re casual and cool, complementing and blending effortlessly into any day-to-day outfit. Long story short: Saint Laurent’s “Blake” bootie is pretty much the perfect ankle boot – EVER! But it’s also pretty expensive at $895.

Sole Society “Leo” Suede Ankle Boots

Luckily, we’ve found a dead-on “Blake” dupe for you! Sole Society‘s “Leo” looks just like the Saint Laurent boot with the exception that it costs only a fraction of the real deal. The retail price for the Sole Society version used to be $109.95, but it’s currently on sale for half off! Now that’s what we call a real steal deal, so you better get advantage of this awesome deal while it’s still available! At this price I’d get them in all three colors!

Mango “Alba” Buckle Ankle Boots

Another fitting Saint Laurent alternative would have to be these tan suede ankle boots by Mango which may not be an identical “Blake” dupe, but are still close enough to give you the same laidback designer look. Bonus: these, too, are currently on sale for less than $60! Yay!

The moment I first laid eyes onto these fancy satin bow slide sandals by Puma which came out as part of the new Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection earlier this month, I knew Rihanna would have another hit on her hands for the fashion-forward, sportswear-loving ladies (…and men since these are also available in men’s sizing). The new styles are supposedly inspired by the luxurious Parisian days of the famously known decadent Queen of France, Marie-Antoinette, the bow slides are a glammed up version of the classic soccer slide with a super cute satin bow adorning the slide strap which come in either a beautiful pastel pink or edgy olive green. The bow slides retail for $90 which is obviously far from being a designer shoe price, but a) these sandals are so in demand right now that they’re almost sold out everywhere and b) not everbody wants to spend almost $100 on a pair of pool slide sandals, so we took a look around to see whether we could find some lower priced alternatives. Spoiler alert: we did!

Alright, let’s talk Gucci again. I know we’ve already featured the “Princetown” loafer mules here on this blog before, but that was just the basic, no-frills version and ever since the huge success of the “Princetown” loafer, Gucci has released like a gazillion variations of new Princetowns, so we felt obligated to show you at least one more of the most coveted Princetown styles. This blog post will focus on the floral embroidered one which features a delicate pink rose embroidery on the vamp and either comes with a fur trim on the footbed ($1.050) or not ($780). If you can afford the real deal, by all means, go for it since there are absolutely no signs of the loafer mule trend slowing down this summer. But if you’re on a tight budget and dropping that kind of money on ONE pair of shoes is simply not justifiable to you, keep on reading as we’ve discovered some amazing Gucci alternatives that won’t break the bank.

Vintage Havana Rose Mules

Let’s start off with my favorite Gucci Princetown dupes! They’re by a brand called Vintage Havana and look almost identical to the pricey Princetowns, but cost only $48 which is exactly $732 cheaper than the real deal. Now that’s a steal deal, right? Some sizes are already out of stock, so you better hurry if you want a pair!

Silent D “Ganthon” Rose-Embroidered Slide Loafers

If you’re willing to invest in a pair of quality designer dupes, check out these fab loafer slides by Silent D. They have noticeable differences to the real deal such as the rose embroidery and the horsebit detail, but the overall design still exudes that luxe Gucci Princetown look. Made of genuine leather and available in either navy or nude. Price: $124.99.

LaRosa Embroidered Slip-On Loafer Mules

And lastly, here’s a Gucci Princetown look-alike made of genuine leather for under $60! I found this dupe while browsing Amazon recently, the brand is called LaRosa and the loafer mules come in either black or white. I can’t personally vouch for this brand as I think these Gucci dupes are from one of those many generic China-based copycat sellers, but judging by the pictures, the quality looks decent for $59.99.

Seems like we can’t catch a break from satin slides at the moment and to be honest with you: I don’t really mind! There’s just something so effortlessly chic about slipping into a pair of delicate satin mules, don’t you agree? A few days ago, I was looking through the newest arrivals at my favorite online shops when I saw a picture of Dolce Vita’s “Henry” Cross-Strap Satin Mules. The design seemed instantly familiar to me, but I couldn’t put my finger on the designer inspiration right away. So I kept on browsing while my brain was doing its usual shoe memory scanning process in the background. And suddenly it just hit me that the Dolce Vita design was a lovely hybrid of Gucci’s “Webby” High Heel Mule from last year and Gianvito Rossi’s “Barth” Sandal Slides which we have already featured here in a previous blog post. Copycat math has striked once again! And I must admit: $595 + $645 = $130 is exactly the kind of shopping math that I like!

Up until recently British designer J.W. Anderson hasn’t been on my fashion radar, but now that I’ve seen his latest womenswear collections, especially the bags and the shoes, I immediately subscribed to his various social media channels in order to never miss out on his future creations again. But let me give you an example of J.W. Anderson’s unique aesthetic first: look at these gorgeous asymmetrical pointy ruffle booties below! I love the boldness of the ruffles and the fact that the asymmetric arrangement forms a forward-facing arrow when both feet are standing next to each other. What I’m not loving though is the price: $840 in retail and even the sale price of $570.99 is still pretty hefty!
