Real vs. Steal – Stuart Weitzman Gilligan Lace-Up d’Orsay Flats

by Irina on July 19, 2016

Update: This post has been updated on July 19, 2016. Scroll down to see the new add.

So, lace-up flats again today. Are you already sick of seeing them everywhere yet? Stuart Weitzman has been really killing it in the boot department lately (Highland OTK boot, anyone?), so of course they had to join the lace-up flat trend bandwagon as well. May I introduce you to “Gilligan”, a beautiful suede lace-up d’Orsay flat with a 0.5″ stacked heel and absolute style blogger favorite. I love every single detail about this flat except for the price which is $398. If you love the look but not the price, keep on reading to find some fantastic Weitzman alternatives for much, much less.

Louise et Cie “Abbatha” Lace-Up d’Orsay Flats

Another personal favorite of mine are these lovely lace-up flats by Louise et Cie. They don’t come in suede unfortunately, but the rest of the design is pretty much identical. Plus, these are currently on sale for $79.99 (down from $139).

Mango “Cristina” Pointed Toe Flat Shoes

Also a great alternative for half the price of the Vince Camuto version is this faux leather lace-up flat by Mango which looks just like the Stuart Weitzman real deal, but costs only $49.99 and comes in either black or ivory.

Steve Madden “Sunshine” d’Orsay Lace-Up Flats

I also adore these lace-up flats from Steve Madden which aren’t an identical dupe, but similar enough to double as a budget-friendly Weitzman alternative. This flat looks actually like the perfect symbiosis of Aquazzura’s “Christy” and Stuart Weitzman’s “Gilligan”, don’t you agree? These beauties come in various beautiful colors (sand, light pink, gold, snakeskin and black) and at $69.95 they’re quite budget-friendly as well. By the way, a taupe version with a non-gold heel named “Blondie” is available at Steve Madden (Canada)ls.

Ava & Aiden “Alexandra” Pointed-Toe Lace-Up Flats

While these Ava & Aiden lace-up flats are the least likely of a “Gilligan” dupe in this list, I still wanted to include them here because I think they’re absolutely fabulous and have a very similar look to the Weitzman flats above. These come in black, grey, blush and tan and are currently on sale for under $70.
