Real vs. Steal – YSL Tribtoo Pumps

by Irina on April 18, 2015

UPDATE: This post has been updated on April 18, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Every once in a while there comes a shoe that will stand out from the masses, a shoe that first becomes a trend and later will be considered iconic (think Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy LBD from Breakfast at Tiffany’s). The YSL Tribtoo / Trib Two / Tribute Two Pump has great potential to become a shoe legend. The highly coveted 5″ inch stiletto pumps are virtually sold out EVERYWHERE and their hefty price tag prevents them from being a realistic shoe dream for most of us not-rich-by-default fashionistas.

P.S.: Also available at Nordstromls & LuisaViaRoma.

Celebrities Love Yves Saint Laurent

The YSL Tribtoo Pumps have been worn by like at least 2 dozen celebrities, from A-Listers to D-Listers. Almost anyone who’s rich and famous owns a pair. Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, Lucy Liu, Christina Aguilera, etc. The YSL Tribtoo Pump was probably the most worn shoe on the red carpet last year and there’s no end in sight for 2009.

Pour La Victoire “Zimmer” Platform Pumps

UPDATE (05/30/2012): After quite a while Pour La Victoire decided to release a new great YSL Tribtoo alternative called the “Zimmer” pump which I sadly love a bit more than my namesake, the PLV “Irina” pump.

Kelsi Dagger “Linzy” Platform Pumps

UPDATE (10/15/2010): Well, well. Look at this. Kelsi Dagger is the lower-priced line of Pour La Victoire and doesn’t their “Linzy” pump look JUST like the PLV Irina? Only it costs half the price. I’ve been a great fan of the “Irina” pumps (obviously!), but the Kelsi Dagger Linzy is just as nice. And there are so many colors to choose from. Which one is your favorite? Personally, I want them ALL!

Pour La Victoire “Irina” Platform Pumps

UPDATE (07/12/2010): OK, so I might be slightly biased to call these Pour La Victoire platform pumps the best YSL Tribtoo knockoffs because of the name, but even though these here are more tamed I’m still over-the-moon in love with these lustworthy heels.

Wet Seal Round Toe Platform Pumps

UPDATE (01/12/2010): Found another YSL Tribtoo alternative by Wet Seal.

When I checked out the new arrivals on Wet Seal today I jumped out of my seat. They’ve added a pair of platform pumps that are so close to the YSL Tribtoos and cost only $24.50?! This must be DEAL OF THE MONTH or so. The pumps are currently available in black and pink and if I were you I’d snag both colors NOW because these heels will go fast.

bebe “Liza” Leather Platform Pumps

Feast your eyes on these YSL knockoff darlings: bebe‘s Liza Leather Platform Pumps. This is probably the closest you’ll ever come to the real deal with a $149 budget. Huge knockoff crush potential! They are currently available in either black leather or patent tortoise shell, but on the website they are also pictured in off white, so I guess you’ll be able to order these in that color soon, too.

It seems that every celebrity at one point or another is seen flaunting around in glamorous Louboutins. Whether it’s the sophisticated high heel or a classic flat, Christian Louboutin has become a staple in the closets of the A-listers. The “Pigalle Plato” Platform Pumps are no different as the design is impeccably exhibited with versatility, in an uptown or downtown manner. The platform adds further height to the elevated stature of the shoe contributing to the elegance. Unfortunately, I don’t have $775 to spend on these beautiful shoes, but the alternative below is quite dazzling.

So I’m sure a lot of you will absolutely hate Stella McCartney‘s “Britt” flatforms. Not only because of their polarizing design, but also because Stella McCartney doesn’t use animal originated materials for her line yet still charges a whopping $995 for these faux leather brogues. However, I’m also quite positively sure that just as many will loooove Stella McCartney for the very same reasons. While I personally can’t picture myself rocking these babies, I do somehow see its androgynous appeal to others – viewed through the man repelling lens, of course. But the price though? Still a total turn-off!

Jeffrey Campbell “Berliner” Lace-Up Platform Oxfords

Enter Jeffrey Campbell. Crazy shoe designs have always been a part of the brand’s aesthetical vision, so I wasn’t the least surprised to find this Stella McCartney “Britt” dupe in JC’s repertoire. As usual, Jeffrey Campbell’s prices aren’t the easiest on a middle-class woman’s budget, but the design is spot-on and they’re still more than $800 cheaper than the pricey originals. Make sure to also check out JC’s “Zeppolels“; same design, but with a beautiful baby blue suede upper!

Mary-Kate Olsen is quite the trendsetter. A few weeks after being spotted on MK’s feet, Stella McCartney‘s mesh sandals hit the digital shelves of NET-A-PORTER, but sold out there super fast. If you are craving the real deal, you can still find them on Stella’s website or read on and let me show you some recession-proof alternatives.

At the beginning of 2009, Mary-Kate Olsen was having an obsession with Stella McCartney’s mesh sandals from the Spring 2009 collection. She was wearing them to various events and when being out and about before finally moving on to another pair of lustworthy heels which she could wear to death.

I always thought Steve Madden is the king of knockoffs, but after seeing so many designer shoe look-a-likes coming from bebe latey, I have come to the conclusion that they deserve this title. Whenever I visit their website, new designer knockoffs have popped up just like these Stella McCartney knockoffs for example. bebe’s “Lizzy” sandals come in 3 different colors and retail for $139.
