So there’s the Acne Pistol boots and the Rag & Bone Newbury booties – these both boot styles share the reign over the coveted designer bootie “goes-with-everything” kingdom in Hollywoodland. I’d love to join the fashionable crowd below, but spending $525 on shoes isn’t currently a viable option. However, I’ve found an almost identical match for all our budget-conscious readers and… well, me.

So this black and white sandal bootie by Gianvito Rossi might seem familiar to you because we’ve recently featured a similar two-tone style from the very same collection. I’m really, really into black and white lately, so this heel is right up my alley. The price however? Not so much.

It’s quite hard to find dressy-slash-sexy flat sandals in comparison to how easy it is to find a hot high heel these days. However, these t-strap flats by Giuseppe Zanotti certainly fit the description! Signore Zanotti has developed this signature style lately where he would add metal plated embellishments on the shoe like found here back on the heel and t-strap (see another example here). I can totally see these working with a black maxi dress or a nice pair of denim shorts. But $750 for that bit of shoe? I think I have to pass this time!

Bionda Castana may not be a household name yet, but judging from their latest shoe collections I think it definitely should be. For instance, I absolutely adore these black ankle boots here. The design is classic and timeless, but the front straps give it some sort of bondage-like vibe which spices up the shoe and keeps it from being yet another black ankle boot in your closet. However, my wallet is not meant for splurging on designer shoes, and even the sale price of $256 is still a bit of a turn-off for me.

These buckled ankle boots were designed by shoe design genius Giuseppe Zanotti for the hottest brand in Fashionland right now, Balmain, for their Fall 2009 footwear range. I wasn’t really a fan of this collection until I saw these badass rocker booties. My only problem: finding the pocket change to afford these. Sigh!
