A simple summertime wedge is sometimes all a girl needs to be happy. Now what’s shocking is that this simple wedge is by Christian Louboutin – the Liberace of shoemakers! No crazy 7 inch wedge. No crazy accouterments. Just a nice pinkish/mauve patent leather shoe. If only one could “simply” find $595 to pay for this much simplicity. But oh well, how do the French say – c’est la vie!

Steve Madden “WISSPER” Slingback Wedge Sandals

Now let me introduce you to the Robin Hood of the shoe world, Mr. Steve Madden. Bringing (and copying) designer heels for less and giving them to the poor (yet oh-so-fab) people! Once again, he doesn’t disappoint with his “WISSPER” slingback wedge. The only truly detectable difference is the thicker slingback strap and buckle. Other than that, for $68.07 (sale price!) this is a great steal. Available in black, teal, fuchsia and white patent as well as black suede, natural linen, navy fabric and leopard.

Last week we showed you the gorgeous turquoise suede version of Christian Louboutin‘s “Super Domblasle” cork platforms and today we’re highlighting the quite as lustworthy shiny patent version. I’m still torn on the extreme platform, but all in all I do love the design. The price? Not so much.

Nine West “Troischic” Wedge Sandals

Update (02/15/2012): Came across another great and affordable Louboutin alternative. These wedges by Nine West do have a few differences, but overall they still share the same style. While I like the black version I’m even more in love with the brighter options like orange and yellow.

bebe “Leah” Cork Wedge Sandals

Even though bebe is known for their sky-high heels, in the case of copying the “Super Dombasle” they weren’t quite brave enough to go all the way and copy the 3 inch platform as well. Instead they reduced it by 50% and put a silly flower on the ankle strap; probably to distract from the fact that otherwise it’s pretty much an identical twin of the CL version. But yes, the flower is detachable. Thank God!

Stella McCartney is one of those designers that has a cult following. Those who are fashionably loyal to her are fiercely loyal. If you’re one of those people, then what better way to wear your heart on your feet than to nab a design that Stella herself wears? The shoes have so many great qualities, but number one in my mind is that cork matches everything, making them a go-to in any closet.

Jeffrey Campbell Cork Suede Buckle Sandals

Jeffrey Campbell brings us a true steal. Not only is their cork wedge a great match at a better price, but it’s also partially environmentally friendly since cork is a sustainable material. Pair them with jeans, shorts, skirts and dresses for a casually cool summer ensemble.

Over the last few years Valentino has built quite the extensive “Rockstud” collection. From bags to shoes, everything gets adorned with the famed pyramid studs these days. These cork wedge sandals are the 10th “Rockstud” item we’re covering on this blog. Unsurprisingly, I like these studded caged cork wedges just as much as the rest of the “Rockstud” collection. They’re casual yet sexy and summery but also glamorous and a little wild. If I had $975 to spare, I totally would get these for the upcoming spring and summer season.

Fergie “Valencia” Studded Wedges

If you’re looking for a caged wedge à la Valentino, you might want to consider investing in these studded wedge sandals by Fergie. There’s clearly some heavy Valentino inspiration involved here even though these Fergie wedges have also a few differences that makes them stand out on their own.

Though summer is far ahead, these ebullient Christian Louboutin Miss Cristo Platform Sandals are not hard to notice. The straps give this rather casual wedge an elegant touch, while the cork heel maintains an element of minimalism. The bowknot detailing also adds a nice touch of decoration at its best. Such an amazing shoe, but at $595 and already sold out, the look-a-like below is great option.

bebe “Faithful” Cork Wedge Sandals

Update (08/18/2012): At first sight these bebe shoes might not look like an inspired version, but if you look at how the straps run around the wedge sandals you quickly see it’s an almost identical match to the Miss Cristo design by Louboutin.

Mojo Moxy “Sonny” Wedge Sandals

Update (12/21/2011): Just found this Louboutin inspired wedge style by Mojo Moxy. I really like how they made this design their own by spicing up the shoe with studs and a snakeskin-covered wedge platform. LOVE!

Dollhouse “Roza” Cork Wedge Sandals

As much as I adore the Louboutin Miss Cristo Platform Sandals there is no way I can afford them, especially on a student budget. But with the Dollhouse “Roza” Cork Wedge Sandals there isn’t a reason not to have this lavish style. These wedges feature a bow across the vamp, adding a charming appearance to the shoe. These are available in black, chestnut and gold.
