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.
