Real vs. Steal – Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boots

by Vanessa on August 18, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 18, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

I’m not sure why they call these boots 50/50, when they’re 100% awesome, but I’ll take them! Stuart Weitzman has been a household name in evening shoes for a very long time. Many people don’t know that the collection features far more than glitz and glamour for the feet. There’s everyday booties, bags and wedges to name a few. In my fashionable opinion, each year the shoes get better and better looking, but the amazing comfort stays the same. So it’s no surprise that many of Hollywood’s leading ladies are consistently seen in Stuart Weitzman shoes on and off the red carpet. These below photos are sure to get you less sad about leaving summer behind.

When it comes to designer shoes, I do love big names such as Louboutin, Zanotti and Blahnik, but Gianvito Rossi is my newest discovery and probably a big name soon himself. Admittedly, he’s actually not much of a newbie, but I feel like this brand has risen its profile drastically lately. Rossi shoes are a big thing now and you can find them in almost any designer fashion store nowadays. Looking at shoes like the one pictured below, Rossi’s success doesn’t really surprise me. His aesthetic vision is clear, his designs meticulous and the craftmanship superb (it’s “Made in Italy”, after all!). Too bad all this shoe goodness comes with a matching price tag.

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.

Mary-Kate Olsen Loves Stella McCartney

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.

bebe “Lizzy” Mesh Sandals

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.

You know when you wear an outfit and someone tells you that you look great and “that’s totally your color“? Well, someone needs to tell Hayden Panettiere that. Pastel pink looks fantastic with her skin tone and hair color. The shoes and bag give the otherwise sweet dress an edgier look that is definitely not matchy matchy. Snaps to Hayden and her stylist!
