Christian Louboutin makes some of the finest shoes in the world. Louboutins are a celebrity’s staple buys and no red carpet would be complete without at least one pair of the red-soled high heels. Louboutin’s “Pigalle” pump is timeless with its classic and sleek design. It’s probably Louboutin’s bestselling and most famous shoe ever. Not to mention expensive.

The Highest Heel “Hottie” Pumps

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are. Just look at the extreme high heel or the pointed toe, it looks just like the real deal. And the best thing: they are on sale right now. But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

When I first saw the “Bellantomod” Lace-Up Back Open-Toe Booties by Manolo Blahnik, I couldn’t really believe that these are supposed to be Manolos because the designer usually goes for a more elegant and timeless style direction. This high heel though screamed Tom Ford or Gucci to me. It’s a very sexy and stylish shoe; I love the lacing detail in the open back of this so-called “shootie”. As you can see from the pictures below, Vicky B. is also a fan. And who can blame her? However, not everyone of us has VB’s shopping budget, so we came up with a list of possible Manolo alternatives for you.

Et voilà, bebe to the rescue! Being a pretty much spot-on dupe of the Manolos, the “Matison” is just as sexy as the real deal and with a price tag of $139, you won’t have to break the bank in order to afford it. But you better be fast because some sizes are beginning to sell out already.

Chinese Laundry “Jinxy” High Heel Booties

Another budget-friendly alternative and currently on sale, too, are these stylish heels from Chinese Laundry. They’re not a 1:1 dupe or anything, but they’ll still give you the same sexy look. Make sure to check out the insanely gorgeous cobalt blue suede version which is my absolute favorite!

After running this blog for more than 6 months, I don’t get as excited as I used to when spotting a new knockoff. Today, however, was one of these rare days. A few months back when it was announced that Chloë Sevigny would design a second collection for Opening Ceremony (Fall/Winter 2009), I spotted a pair of to-die-for black buckle boots on Chloë’s feet and I instantly fell in love.

It was one of these shoe obsessions where I was even willing to take the plunge and go for the real deal, but my enthusiasm came to an abrupt end when I learned that a) the buckle boots wouldn’t be available until late August/September and b) were priced at $625 which is twice the price I expected/hoped them to be.

Penny Loves Kenny “Clay” Gladiator Sandals

UPDATE (05/15/2014): Almost four years after the last find, I happened to come across this strappy wedge by Penny Loves Kenny which instantly reminded me of the Opening Ceremony booties above.

Jeffrey Campbell “Potion” Ankle Boots

I tried to find reasonably priced knockoffs for weeks, but never found anything noteworthy. Until today when I accidentally stumbled upon these buckled boots by Jeffrey Campbell. Just look at them, they look almost the same except the original O.C. boots have those additional buckle caps which is a minor bummer, but otherwise they are identical and cost only 1/6 of the originals’ price. Big YAY!

Dear Tom Ford, you certainly know your craft, don’t you? Because here we go again with yet another stunning Tom Ford creation! This head-to-toe mosaic look from Ford’s S/S 2014 collection is nothing short of amazing and it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that a power lady such as Beyoncé chose this very outfit to rock it to the release of her latest album. Unfortunately, these badass thigh boots never got into retail, but even if they would have, I’m sure none of us mortals would have been able to afford them.

Hats off to bebe for going mainstream on such a bold shoe! The mosaic effect isn’t quite as distinctive as on the original, but bebe’s version certainly comes close enough, don’t you agree? And with the doable price tag of $269, none of us will have to rob a bank in order to afford these.

Oh, Giuseppe Zanotti, and here we go again. I’m seriously crushing on all of his recent designs lately. And how could I not? Just look at these super sexy t-strap sandals! I love the uber-glam oversized chain-embellishments (so on trend!) and the interestingly designed heel (or rather heel position). Also love how model Joan Smalls rocked her white Zanotti chain heels with a crisp white mini dress. Such a flawless look! Wish I’d had the funds to put some Zanottis in my shoe closet. But oh well, just another dream shoe I guess…

Steve Madden are certainly having a moment with Giuseppe Zanotti lately as they tend to find quite a lot of “inspiration” in his footwear. “MAGNETIK” might not be an exact dupe as the chain embellishments are significantly more toned down and the heel is differently shaped, too, but overall the look is still very Zanotti-ish. $109.95 and they are all yours (use the promo code above and save 15% on your order)!
