Real vs. Steal – Christian Louboutin Belle Zeppa Suede Wedge Booties

Booties have been my everlasting footwear obsession for this past fall and winter and will be a great transition piece for spring. Christian Louboutin gave his iconic finish on these Belle Zeppa Wedge Booties and recreated the mundane bootie, amplifying it to the next level with the hidden heel and refined taste. But as much as I love red backs, the price is way beyond my budget! If you’re in my shoes, you are in luck because we have several alternatives that fit every budget.

Sam Edelman “Wilma” Wedge Booties

I have been eyeing the “Wilma” Wedge Booties by Sam Edelman since they first arrived at 6pm, and though before I restrained myself from making this lustworthy purchase, now they are finally on sale for $107.99! They are palpably super chic and versatile and will be a long lived item in my closet.

Pour La Victoire “Chaney” Wedge Booties

If you prefer a more rounded toe finish bootie, then these by Pour La Victoire may be for you. A simple bootie like this one can go a long way, and these are truly appropriate for every occasion. If black is too dark for your personal style, these are also available in olive suede (my personal favorite) and grey.

Chinese Laundry “At Once” Wedge Booties

The “At Once” Wedge Bootie by Chinese Laundry, like the other alternatives above, is certainly more affordable than the Louboutin originals. Priced on sale for $58.65, these are a coveted steal that will only become essential in your closet. Besides the amazing price, these are also available in navy and taupe suede.
