I know we’re a galaxy away from summer yet, so it might not be the best time to write about summery gladiator sandals in the middle of winter, but when this very sandal has been designed by la Grande Dame of French fashion, Madame Isabel Marant, you kind of have no choice but to post it. We had quite a few reader requests for the studded Lester strappy block heel sandal below and it took us a while to come up with a few budget-frienldy alternatives, but finally, here they are…

Seychelles “Hope So” Caged Gladiator Sandals

UPDATE (03/07/2014): Stumbled upon this fabulous Marant-inspired gladiator sandal by Seychelles. Available in either tan or black leather for $77.99.

Mollini “Jalis” Studded Sandals

First up is this studded sandal by Mollini. It’s not an identical look-a-like, but similar enough to be mistaken for Marant, I think. Plus, it’s on sale and available in black, too!

Dolce Vita “Jerica” Studded Gladiator Sandals

Another alternative are these gladiator sandals by Dolce Vita. I wouldn’t consider them a dupe, but they do have a very similar look to the Marant shoes, wouldn’t you agree? Also available in other colors.

Sam Edelman “Dion” Stud Sandals

This one by Sam Edelman is also more of an inspired-by option rather than a full-blown knockoff. But the look and feel reminds me of the Marant sandal above, so I decided to include it in the list.
