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 $495 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.

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.

We have already written multiple times about how Isabel Marant‘s footwear creations always seem to create a massive hype around them. Whatever the French designer brings out on the market is almost instantly set to be a guaranteed success. First, we had the “Bekket” hidden wedge sneaker and the “Dicker” boot and now “Carol”, a crystal-embellished leather cuff sandal with a stacked wooden heel, is well on its way to becoming the “It“-shoe of the season. Much like everyone else, I absolutely adore this boho-chic summer sandal, but there’s no way I could justify that enormous $1.035 price tag that comes along with it.

Jeffrey Campbell “Lakota” Studded Cuff Sandals

Vahni, one of our former guest bloggers here at ITC, has recently blogged about how she (and the rest of the fashion world, for that matter) is totally insane for Isabel at the moment; and for the above pictured “Carol” Sandal in particular. Luckily, just a few days before I happened to stumble upon Jeffrey Campbell‘s “Lakota” Sandal which as you can easily see below is heavily inspired by Madame Marant’s studded creation. I happily passed on the tip to Vahni and she ordered them within a heartbeat. You can see how Vahni rocks her new JCs on her Instagram (absolutely love how V paired them with white denim). Since I am quite positive that these shoes, which retail for $178 (approx. 1/5 of the original’s price) and are available in either black or white, are probably going to sell out very quickly soon, you better hurry up to order these JCs if you’re, too, like Vahni are insane for Isabel.

Oh my, oh my, oh my! I don’t have words to describe how much I’m in love with these black buckled stiletto booties by Giuseppe Zanotti. They’re so hot and the side buckles are such a sexy little detail, don’t you agree? Too bad even the sale price makes me want to cut my credit card in two.

Ever since seeing these on the runway and in ads reminiscent of glamorous ice cream parlors, these gorgeous Louis Vuitton heels have been on my mind. The metal toe is such a fresh new take on the classic pump, and the color combinations are heavenly. Just think of how easily you can wear these with a suit, jeans, a cocktail dress or full skirt! But not only are they as versatile as can be, they also make legs look miles long! My favorite shade is the beige, but you should choose yours based on what you already have in your closet. Do you love wearing dark colors? Then perhaps the black is your best bet. Think maybe a little mint tone would shake up your mostly khaki/cream wardrobe, then give it a try. It looks like celebrities really love them in white too! The price is very steep though, so if you’re mad for them, check out some astonishingly similar styles further down the page.

Chinese Laundry “Danger Zone” Cap-Toe Pumps

First up is the least expensive pair by Chinese Laundry. I’ve always liked this brand. They have great party shoes and you can usually count on them being well made and on-trend. Since these are $99.95 each, it’s not a crazy deal, but not too bad considering the original price tag. Just think about how you might wear the nude pair with a monochromatic ensemble like what we’ve seen on the runway this season. Or consider wearing the black pump with the gold toe during fall with a sleek silhouette including a jewel-toned peplum top, black leather skirt and a bold metal cuff.

Diavolina “Attica” Cap-Toe Pumps

The other option is by Diavolina and costs just a bit more than the style right above. The heel is higher and skinnier though, which definitely makes for a leaner look. We found these on Australia’s awesome online shoe store, StyleTread. It looks like the black version is almost identical to the designer original with the silver toe! It’s too bad the mint and white versions are not available, but I’d say most of us would get the best use out of these two shades. So if these are for you, make sure you add a little bit of something metallic somewhere else in your outfit, but otherwise keep accessories simple to let them really stand out.

Nicholas “Amore” Cap-Toe Pumps

If you prefer the white Merry-Go-Round Pumps, here’s a pretty good alternative by Nicholas which, unfortunately, is a little pricey at $259 (now on sale for $181.30). However, these pumps have a very elegant and sophisticated look and might be worth the investment if you can get a lot of wear out of them.
