Oh my, oh my, oh my! I don’t have words to describe how much I’m in love with these black buckled stiletto booties by Giuseppe Zanotti. They’re so hot and the side buckles are such a sexy little detail, don’t you agree? Too bad even the sale price makes me want to cut my credit card in two.

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 $89 in either black or natural leather.

Ever since seeing these on the runway and in ads reminiscent of glamorous ice cream parlors, these gorgeous Louis Vuitton heels have been on my mind. The metal toe is such a fresh new take on the classic pump, and the color combinations are heavenly. Just think of how easily you can wear these with a suit, jeans, a cocktail dress or full skirt! But not only are they as versatile as can be, they also make legs look miles long! My favorite shade is the beige, but you should choose yours based on what you already have in your closet. Do you love wearing dark colors? Then perhaps the black is your best bet. Think maybe a little mint tone would shake up your mostly khaki/cream wardrobe, then give it a try. It looks like celebrities really love them in white too! The price is very steep though, so if you’re mad for them, check out some astonishingly similar styles further down the page.

Chinese Laundry “Danger Zone” Cap-Toe Pumps

First up is the least expensive pair by Chinese Laundry. I’ve always liked this brand. They have great party shoes and you can usually count on them being well made and on-trend. Since these are $99.95 each, it’s not a crazy deal, but not too bad considering the original price tag. Just think about how you might wear the nude pair with a monochromatic ensemble like what we’ve seen on the runway this season. Or consider wearing the black pump with the gold toe during fall with a sleek silhouette including a jewel-toned peplum top, black leather skirt and a bold metal cuff.

Diavolina “Attica” Cap-Toe Pumps

The other option is by Diavolina and costs just a bit more than the style right above. The heel is higher and skinnier though, which definitely makes for a leaner look. We found these on Australia’s awesome online shoe store, StyleTread. It looks like the black version is almost identical to the designer original with the silver toe! It’s too bad the mint and white versions are not available, but I’d say most of us would get the best use out of these two shades. So if these are for you, make sure you add a little bit of something metallic somewhere else in your outfit, but otherwise keep accessories simple to let them really stand out.

Steve Madden “ILUSSION” Cap-Toe Pumps

Steve Madden‘s “ILUSSION” Pumps also have a very LV-like look though the cap-toe isn’t made of metal. They retail at $99.95 but with the current promo (see above) you can get these for a budget-friendly $79.96 including free shipping.

Nicholas “Amore” Cap-Toe Pumps

If you prefer the white Merry-Go-Round Pumps, here’s a pretty good alternative by Nicholas which, unfortunately, is a little pricey at $259 (now on sale for $181.30). However, these pumps have a very elegant and sophisticated look and might be worth the investment if you can get a lot of wear out of them.

Well, hello there, beautiful! Now isn’t this silver striped ankle strap high heel sandal by Saint Laurent a real beauty? I must say I’m quite in love with it. I especially love the huge ankle strap buckle, it has become quite the signature detail for Saint Laurent footwear lately, don’t you agree? Too bad these heels are a) expensive and b) sold out!

Fergie “Torcha” Striped Ankle-Strap Heels

Now I know these Fergie high heel sandals are not an 1:1 dupe because they’re missing the buckle, the stripes don’t go down the heel and they’re black/white colored rather than silver/black. However, the overall look still screams Saint Laurent to me, plus these heels are currently on sale for affordable $75 so there really isn’t a reason to complain here!

I’m always on the fence whether it’s worth splurging on designer shoe staples or not? Take this pointed black pump by Saint Laurent for example. It is basically a simple black pump without any outstanding features and I’m sure there are dozens of similar looking shoes that are way cheaper than $625. Yet when I look at how the pumps look worn, it becomes clear to me that these shoes – even though they don’t have any distinctive features that make these pumps stand out – are designed to absolute perfection. From the arch to the supple leather and the perfectly shaped heel… and let’s not forget about the craftmanship of designer shoes made in Italy. If I had $625 free to spend and would be in need of black pumps, these Saint Laurent heels would be my choice!

Jeffrey Campbell “Dulce” Pointed Toe Pumps

Alright, I get that most of us don’t have budgets that allow a $625 shoe purchase, that’s why I would like to introduce you to these just as fab pumps by Jeffrey Campbell. It’s so unusual to see such a simple shoe design coming from Campbell since they’ve been mostly doing OTT shoes for the last few years, but these simple black high heel pumps are a nice, refreshing change. I absolutely love the elegant design of these Jeffrey Campbell pumps and the shape is so similar to that of the Saint Laurent heels. Available in black and yellow leather as well as gray and red suede.
