Real vs. Steal – Gucci Princetown Loafer Mules

by Irina on November 25, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on November 25, 2017. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Just as recently promised today is the day we’re finally covering the incredibly popular Gucci “Princetown” loafer mules that have been constantly flooding our fashion feeds for roughly the past twelve months. If Stuart Weitzman’s “Highland” overknee boots have been the “It“-shoe for Fall/Winter, Gucci’s “Princetown” is the absolute must-have shoe for Spring/Summer. We’re admittedly pretty late to the party, but even though the loafer mule trend has been around for quite a while now, there seem to be no signs of slowing down anytime soon. And with Spring around the corner, Gucci’s “Princetown” is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. That is, if you can stomach the price tag of $595 (now: $680), of course. Luckily, there’s no need to shell out a fortune to be right on trend this season as we have compiled a list of more than *drumroll please* 20, yes, TWENTY Gucci “Princetown” alternatives for you to satisfy all your fashion needs! This is an absolute first in the history of this blog; to start out with so many designer dupes right from the get-go. It only goes to show just how insanely popular (and probably super comfy) this footwear trend is at the moment. I also love how ELLE referred to loafer mules as “…the mullet of office-friendly footwear” which is one of the funniest fashion metaphors I’ve read in a while.

AnnaKastle Backless Slip-On Loafer Mules

AnnaKastle is a brand I have recently discovered on Amazon and they have the biggest selection of Gucci “Princetown” dupes I’ve yet come across. Fur, no fur, embroidered, printed, you name it, they got it. I assume the merchant is operating somewhere from Asia to be able to produce such spot-on “Princetown” look-alikes and most of the dupes sell for ~$50. Customer reviews average around 4/5 stars, so I’d say they’re worth taking a closer look at. I wouldn’t say they’ll last you a lifetime, but if you want to try the trend without breaking the bank, this one might be a suitable option. By the way, my personal favorite of the Gucci dupe bunch is the rose embroidered one, it’s so pretty!

Does this sound familiar? You see something and are really turned off by it first, but then, the more you look at it, the more it grows on you until you become obsessed with it? That happens to me quite often I must admit. In almost every case it’s a shoe which I first hate, then like and finally LOVE! The last time this happened to me was with these lace-up ankle boots by Ann Demeulemeester.

Also available at Forward by Elyse Walker, S|Sense, Farfetchls, Vestiaire Collective & The RealReal.

When I first saw them, I thought they were way too clunky for a woman’s feet. But I couldn’t help but be fascinated by them, so I decided to give them another chance and googled them. Sometimes, in order to be able to see a shoe’s full potential, you have to see it on a person’s feet. That was definitely the case with the Ann Demeulemeester lace-up boots. The moment I saw the models flaunting them in a mini dress, I was irrevocably in LOVE!

Jeffrey Campbell Corset Heels

Update (10/05/2009): More good news! Free People have finally restocked Jeffrey Campbell’s Ann Deumeulemeester knockoffs. Missed out on these the first time? Now is your chance to get hold of these cuties!

Sometimes I think everything Jeffrey Campbell does these days is copying other people’s work. Well, it may be unethical, but at least it allows us budget fashionistas to be fashionable without the hefty price tag. Look at these beautiful, almost identical knockoffs. Pretty amazing, huh? They sure are shamelessly expensive for knockoffs, but even priced at $198 they are about $700 les than the originals, so they can’t be TOO bad, right? All sizes are still available, but you better be fast as these knockoffs won’t stay for too long (they’re also exclusively sold at Free People, so if they are gone there, you won’t find them anywhere else).

If Schutz hasn’t been on your radar yet, I think these sultry-looking caged heels named “Juliana” are about to change that in a second. But let’s get the facts first: Schutz is a Brasil based footwear brand which has been around for 20 years now, but has only gained significant momentum in the last 3-4 years. Schutz’ success partly stems from the influx of fashion bloggers and famous Instagrammers wearing their shoes and “Juliana” seems to have been an especially popular shoe style of theirs (see picture collage below). You can often find designer-inspired styles in Schutz’ collections, but they always manage to infuse those inspired styles with the brand’s own unique aesthetic. I’m not sure whether “Juliana” is a designer-inspired style (if so, I couldn’t tell), but I absolutely adore it anyway! It’s such a sexy and flattering high heel and I just love the spider web-like, diamond-shaped cut-out design. Total shoe hotness! And while $190 isn’t a terribly expensive price for shoes (if you compare it to those of designer shoes, of course), there’s still room to save here, I think!

Worldwide shipping is available, by the way. Total steal deal alert, everyone!

So who’s up for some new Christian Louboutin goodness today? Because we have a super pretty Louboutin heel we really want to show you. “Toerless Muse” is a gorgeous pointed-toe stiletto pump enclosed by delicate horizontal and vertical straps giving the shoe a very refined, sexy caged look. The bold design obviously needs space to fully unfold its cage effect, so these beauties should be best worn with a dress that shows some leg (see Olivia Palermo and Kendall Jenner for reference). Unfortunately, these Louboutins are pretty much sold out everywhere and even if you had the luck to find them somewhere, most of us would probably have a hard time justifying spending $900 on a pair of shoes.

Kendall + Kylie “Alisha” Tiered Ankle Strap Pumps

Well, well, now look who took some (or more like a lot) inspiration from their overflowing designer shoe closets for their own shoe collection? The Jenner sisters! “Alisha” by Kendall + Kylie is quite the Louboutin twin, don’t you think? The only noticeable difference between both is that the t-strap on the K + K version is shortened. Otherwise, they’re pretty much identical. “Alisha” is available in either black or taupe leather for under $50 (sale price!).

It’s finally summer and my feet are screaming for a summer vacation! These floral lace espadrilles by Valentino would be the perfect summer shoes because they’re flat (= comfortable) and the lace fabric makes them not only super stylish but also super airy which means no sweaty feet on hot summer days. Too bad they’re probably the most expensive pair of espadrilles I’ve ever seen (well, besides those from Chanel, of course).
