Last week we showed you the gorgeous turquoise suede version of Christian Louboutin‘s “Super Domblasle” cork platforms and today we’re highlighting the quite as lustworthy shiny patent version. I’m still torn on the extreme platform, but all in all I do love the design. The price? Not so much.

Topshop “LOOKER” Cork Platform Sandals

Update (05/10/2014): Accidentally stumbled upon these cork platforms at Topshop and instantly had to think of the Louboutin cork heels above. Available in black, white, red, yellow and black patent for $90!

Nine West “Troischic” Wedge Sandals

Update (02/15/2012): Came across another great and affordable Louboutin alternative. These wedges by Nine West do have a few differences, but overall they still share the same style. While I like the black version I’m even more in love with the brighter options like orange and yellow.

Guess Tunsa “Cork” Platform Wedges

Update (07/25/2011): Here’s an almost identical version of CL’s “Super Dombasles” by Guess. And did I mention they’re on sale? Score! Available in black, white or nude patent.

bebe “Leah” Cork Wedge Sandals

Even though bebe is known for their sky-high heels, in the case of copying the “Super Dombasle” they weren’t quite brave enough to go all the way and copy the 3 inch platform as well. Instead they reduced it by 50% and put a silly flower on the ankle strap; probably to distract from the fact that otherwise it’s pretty much an identical twin of the CL version. But yes, the flower is detachable. Thank God!

So who doesn’t love a good lasercut high heel sandal? I know I do and it seems like fashion bloggers love ’em just as much. These B Brian Atwood black suede beauties are absolutely gorgeous, don’t you agree? I love them in both the black and the bright purple hue. However the $425 price tag is a little too steep for me.

This sporty sailor style by Tory Burch is really starting to grow on me. At first sight, these espadrille wedges seem to be simple but on the contrary they are anything but mundane. The two-tone colors – navy and white – create a distinct color palette and are very versatile. I love how both Kristen Bell and Megan Fox paired them with blue denim, really drawing attention to the wedge. There are infinite wardrobe possibilities, and any look can be easily achieved. From polished ladylike wear to boho chic, I think we can all agree that these are magnificent. And though they may be sold out, we have several almost identical matches below!

MIA “Renegade” Wedge Sandals

MIA does a nice job mimicking the wedges above; seemingly with every detail in place. Priced at only $19.98 (sale price!), one can truly immerse in luxury without having to stray from the budget, and searching for a sold out shoe. If you are in search of an exact Tory Burch look-a-like, then these “Renegade” wedges may just be the ultimate find.

Tommy Hilfiger “Venice” Espadrille Wedges

Adding to the mix, are these Tommy Hilfiger “Venice” Espadrille Wedges. Though the two-tone concept is incorporated, the colors are out of order with emphasize on the white strip. Also, these wedges are available in blue with green for a more colorful and vibrant look. The sporty sailor style is still evident in both color versions, but I think that the blue with green has more of a casual appearance. Regardless of your preference, these are definitely up to par with the real deal and are quite affordable, too!

During the summer season, flip-flops aren’t usually my type of go-to shoes unless I am going to the beach. However, these Valentino Rockstud PVC Thong Sandals redefine the mundane flip-flop, making them an elegant semi-casual yet semi-formal summer shoe. And, of course, the stylish fashion blogger and footwear designer, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad, proves all of the statements above. As she pairs them with various outfits, these Valentinos exhibit their endless potential as a versatile summer sandal.

Steve Madden “JIFFFY” Studded Jelly Thong Sandals

Splurging $295 on PVC footwear that can only be worn only during one part of the year is quite the extravagant price to pay.

Priced at $29.98, they are almost identical to its designer counterpart with only minor differences that are hardly even noticeable.

So I tell you what the deal with these Acne Studios “Colt” ankle boots is: they’re basically the “Pistol” boots but with a higher heel. And if you’ve read this blog for a while, you’ll know: the higher, the better. Personally, I absolutely loooove this updated version of the Acne Pistols, but seeing as I purchased the real Acne Pistol boots just last year and am still recovering from splurging on this purchase, there’s no way I could go for the real deal once again here. At least not now.

Selected Femme “Carol” Zip Ankle Boots

Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon these ankle boots by Selected Femme. They are an identical match to the Acne Colt boots, plus they’re on sale for almost 50% off! So before I wrote about them here on this blog, I made sure to order my own pair first just to make sure they wouldn’t sell out in the meantime (something that has happened in the past). And what can I say? I’m in love. They are just as gorgeous in real life, well made, very comfortable and I love the extra inch these boots give me.
