I don’t know how they do it, but Yves Saint Laurent makes some of the most iconic shoes I’ve ever seen. Especially their “Tribute” collection is a hit among celebrities, fashion connoisseurs and us totally obsessed shoe freaks. I’ve loved the Tribute sandals from the first moment I saw them, but never got the chance to go for the real deal or snap up one of the various knockoffs (check!) back then when they were considered the “It” shoe of the year. My favorite Tribute sandal was the purple suede version with gold trimming, but the black patent version is of course more versatile.

Aldo “Chelly” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (06/14/2017): While browsing the latest arrivals at Aldo, I happened to stumble upon another great Yves Saint Laurent alternative. Say hello to “Chelly”! Apart from the heel which isn’t tapered, “Chelly” is pretty much a spot-on YSL dupe. Available in black, silver or nude patent for $62.99.

Wild Pair “Kisme” Platform Patent Leather Sandals

Update (11/22/2016): Check out these super affordable YSL Tribute look-alike heels by Wild Pair! Aren’t they amazing? I guess they’re more likely supposed to be dupes of Steve Madden’s “Kananda” heels rather than the original YSLs as the brand has several other Steve Madden dupes in their collection, but since Madden’s “Kananda” is a pretty good dupe of the Tribute sandals itself, we’re not going to be petty here. They’re available in red, black and nude faux patent leather and cost $39.99.

Office “Nostalgia” Platform Heels

Update (07/06/2016): Spotted yet another almost spot-on Yves Saint Laurent Tribute dupe at Office. Like Steve Madden’s “Kananda” version, this one too, is missing the t-strap on the front, but otherwise the design is so close to the real deal. Available in nude, red and black patent leather as well as gold or rosegold leather and black nubuck for affordable £69.

Fersengold “Paris” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (05/01/2016): Just stumbled upon these spot-on YSL Tribute look-alike heels by German shoe brand Fersengold which come in either nude or blue patent leather. I also like the Fendi influencels here with the gold f-letter plate on the platform. They’re not the budget-friendliest steal find at £175, but might be worth the investment if you’re looking for a high-quality YSL dupe.

Steve Madden “DAARLING” T-Strap Sandals

Update (03/28/2010): Check out Steve Madden‘s second take on the Tribute sandal. Available in black, nude & natural patent, denim and leopard.

I still prefer the first one, but this heel has some major advantages. It is a) not sold out, b) cheaper and c) way easier to walk in because of the lower heel (the platform helps, too).

Steve Madden T-Bar Platform Sandals

Update (12/04/2009): Woohoo! You lucky gals. ASOS is now selling the Steve Madden sandals at the amazing price of £32 at their online outlet store. That is 60% OFF the original retail price! I bought these babies full price six months ago there and they look absolutely fantastic in person. So worth the price.

YSL lovers, today’s your lucky day! These Steve Madden platform sandals have completely sold out everywhere else, but ASOS has still a few of these fabtastic heels in limited sizes available. Be quick to order because this is the final sale and probably also your last chance for a great YSL Tribute knockoff of such great quality. I love mine so much! They are absolutely amazing looking for knockoffs and while £80 were certainly not cheap, I haven’t put a second thought whether or not to buy them and ordered straight away after they added my size. My tip: if your feet are slightly wider than average I suggest you go at least half a size up so your toes won’t get squished.

Gucci hasn’t been on my radar for a very long time, but lately I’m loving everything from the Italian fashion house, especially the shoe line. So sleek, minimalistic and sexy! “Ursula” happens to be extra gorgeous – it’s a patent-leather gladiator-style ankle strap stiletto sandal and I’m absolutely in love with the bright ocean blue version. Too bad they cost a whopping $850 which probably means they won’t grace my feet anytime soon! Bummer!

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is a well-known man on this blog because a) his shoes are absolutely loved by celebrities and b) because his shoes are often copied. And while it’s not cool to copy, I really can’t blame the copycats because shoes as fabulous as these scalloped suede lace-up sandals need to be brought at more affordable price points. At least that’s how I think. My obsession for these Zanotti heels started when I first saw Aimee Song from Song of Style rocking these high-heeled beauties in various of her outfits. I just love the delicate nature of these! They’re incredibly sexy yet still elude a sense of romance. But here’s the deal-breaker: they cost a whopping $1.095 and are pretty much sold out everywhere.

As much as I love the vintage look of these classic patent leather t-strap pumps by Gucci, I have a hard time seeing myself shell out almost $700 for such a simple shoe design.

I have yet to come across an Alaïa shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at Net-A-Porter (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Alaïa heels! Too bad it probably won’t be these ones.
