When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $945 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

Real vs. Steal – Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boots

by Vanessa on February 20, 2015

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 20, 2015. Scroll down to see the new adds.

I’m not sure why they call these boots 50/50, when they’re 100% awesome, but I’ll take them! Stuart Weitzman has been a household name in evening shoes for a very long time. Many people don’t know that the collection features far more than glitz and glamour for the feet. There’s everyday booties, bags and wedges to name a few. In my fashionable opinion, each year the shoes get better and better looking, but the amazing comfort stays the same. So it’s no surprise that many of Hollywood’s leading ladies are consistently seen in Stuart Weitzman shoes on and off the red carpet. These below photos are sure to get you less sad about leaving summer behind.

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.

These heels by Casadei are nothing short of fierce, a perfect blend of minimalistic steel with curvaceously constructed leather. If these shoes were inspired by a piece of furniture, I’d guess it was the sultry Barcelona Chair by Mies van der Rohe. Only thing is, the now sold-out pair cost almost as much! But of course, we always have another option, so see for yourself what an amazing deal we found below.

Real vs. Steal – Acne Pistol Boots

by Irina on September 27, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on September 27, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Acne‘s “Pistol” ankle boot is pretty much the “It” shoe of the fashion blogosphere because it’s either in every style blogger’s wardrobe or at least on their wish list. Apparently the appeal is partly due to the fact that Acne makes great quality footwear and most bloggers say they were totally worth the investment. At first I didn’t really see why these simple boots were so highly coveted, but the more I look at them the more I start to like them.

I can’t comment on their quality, but the almost identical design is definitely stunning and so is the budget-friendly price. Available in either black or brown leather.
