Up until recently British designer J.W. Anderson hasn’t been on my fashion radar, but now that I’ve seen his latest womenswear collections, especially the bags and the shoes, I immediately subscribed to his various social media channels in order to never miss out on his future creations again. But let me give you an example of J.W. Anderson’s unique aesthetic first: look at these gorgeous asymmetrical pointy ruffle booties below! I love the boldness of the ruffles and the fact that the asymmetric arrangement forms a forward-facing arrow when both feet are standing next to each other. What I’m not loving though is the price: $840 in retail and even the sale price of $398 is still pretty hefty!

Why is it that so many people imagine themselves to be Cleopatra reincarnated? I’m thinking it’s because of the stylish clothes, hip make-up and the unmatched beauty and brains, of course. So for all you modern day, wanna be Roman-Egyptian empresses, these lovely gold sandals by Jimmy Choo clearly capture the mood of 50 B.C. perfectly! And for $895, they’ll give your wallet something to “chew” on. Well… more like taking a huge bite out of your wallet – ouch!

If you are familiar with the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you will all remember the studded Chloé Susan (also sometimes called “Susanna” or “Suzanna”) ankle boots below as they’ve created quite a buzz among fashion bloggers in 2009. Even though they cost more than a grand, people bought them like crazy and the boots soon were sold out everywhere.

Kate Bosworth & Sienna Miller Love Chloé

Famous fashionistas Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller both sported the studded ankle boots in red. Kate was literally obsessed with those boots and wore them whenever possible last year. And can we blame her? They are so cute and both women looked absolutely fabulous wearing them, didn’t they?

You better don’t wait around for them to go on sale because these babies will sell out fast!

Jeffrey Campbell “Starburst” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (05/30/2012): Jeffrey Campbell‘s highly-coveted “Starburst” booties are now available for European fans for at British shoe e-tailer Office. Better get them quick before they sell out!

Free People always seems to get the best Jeffrey Campbell styles. First they got the awesome Ann Deumeulemeester lace-up boots and now they sell knockoffs of the iconic Chloé studded ankle boots (Free People call this style “Northern Lights” while JC and other retailers named it “Starburst”). Don’t they look almost identical? The heel is a bit off, but the studs and buckles are pretty close to the original. The only downsides are that the Jeffrey Campbell studded booties don’t come in red. But the boots are available in black, white and brown, so if you always wanted a budget-friendlier alternative, these Jeffrey Campbell knockoffs are probably your last and only chance as the Chloé booties are a couple of seasons old now.

Real vs. Steal – Balenciaga Speed Trainers

by Irina on December 28, 2017

Let me be honest with you: I’ve tried very hard and for a very long time to ignore the sock trainer trend started by Balenciaga as I just couldn’t get on board with this weird looking shoe trend. The fashion world including several celebrities and style influencers however couldn’t care less for my personal opinion and so the craze for Balenciaga’s Speed Trainers – half sock, half runner shoe – kept on going despite its hefty price of $695. Yup, almost $700 for a little bit of fabric, rubber and a designer logo.

They cost $119, come in several variations including an all-black version and are also available in men’s sizing. Make sure to use the promo code above to save 10% on your order.

Tony Bianco Wilson Sock Sneakers

Tony Bianco also made sure to come up with their interpretation of the sock sneaker which, too, looks A LOT like the original real deal from Balenciaga. I feel like $150 for a designer dupe sneaker made of textile and rubber is a little overpriced, but some colors and styles (e.g. beige color and low cut version) are currently on sale for a reasonable price, so go ahead and get yourself a good deal on these!

I know you’re going to love this! Remember the gorgeous blue Cinderella-like Manolos Carrie wore at the end of the Sex and the City Movie? Yeah, I couldn’t get them out of my head either. The classic design and the bold blue hue make them great contenders for your favorite formal footwear.

Sex and the City Loves Manolo Blahnik

In the movie Carrie said they cost $525, but due to the vast demand retailers almost doubled the price to an outrageous $965 making them a fictional purchase for most of us shoe addicts who are living on a budget. What a bummer!

Audrey Brooke Bella Satin Pumps

Update (12/26/2017): Just stumbled upon yet another set of Hangisi dupes by Audrey Brooke. These satin pumps look a lot like the designer real deal but cost only $59.99! Plus, they come in seven (!) gorgeous colors and I want one in every color!

Dune “Breanna” Jewelled Square Brooch Pointed Toe Satin Pumps

Update (08/05/2017): I think I might have spotted my favorite Hangisi dupes yet! They’re by Dune, cost $140 and also come in a beautiful white satin. Love, love, looooove! Prior to posting this dupe find, I made sure to order these gorgeous heels for myself before you guys could snag them up for yourself. Now I’m impatiently waiting for them to arrive at my doorstep. Will keep you posted how I like them in person! By the way, “Betti” is another great Hangisi dupe with a mid-height heel available in various colors and uppers like black and red and suede or patent leather.

River Island Satin Rhinestone Bow Pumps

Update (08/05/2017): Also really like these bow-adorned blue satin pumps I discovered at River Island which would also double as a great Manolo Blahnik Hangisi look for less alternative. They cost $50 (sale price!, down from $96), so they’re 95% cheaper than the real deal which I think is a totally awesome steal deal!

You can order them in different colors and 3 heel height variations (6, 8 and 10cm) including a flat version! I just looooove how customizable these are, especially for the price of $99! This dupe is my personal favorite so far!

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Windsor” Embellished Satin Pumps

Update (02/19/2017): Apparently one dupe was not enough, so Sarah Jessica Parker came up with a second Manolo Blahnik inspired version of her movie wedding heels for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. “Windsor” is far from being a steal at $585, but at least it’s approximately the same price as the one mentioned in the movie. Also available in silver grey satin.

EKS “Kricoa” Satin High Heel Pumps

Update (02/07/2017): If you’re not quite ready to invest $100 in a high quality dupe, you might want to consider these Manolo Blahnik look-alikes by EKS instead which cost half as much as several of the other Hangisi alternatives. I wouldn’t expect the highest quality or longevity from these shoes, but according to the reviews buyers seemed to be quite happy with their Hangisi dupes, so they might be worth a try. Available in blue, black, rose pink and yellow satin.

Update (06/12/2016): Badgley Mischka’s “Nichole” isn’t available in cobalt blue satin (yet!), but otherwise it’s an almost spot-on dupe of Manolo Blahnik’s Hangisi Pumps, don’t you agree? Available for $215 in either magenta satin or gold or silver metallic.

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Maddalena” Pointy Toe Satin Pumps

Update (01/21/2015): So basically Sarah Jessica Parker decided to dupe Manolo Blahnik’s highly popular “Something Blue” pump for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. The very same shoe which she has worn in the above mentioned Sex and the City movie. And she put a price tag of $545 on it, too. I don’t think her “good friend” Manolo will be too pleased finding out about this.

Update (10/11/2013): I know a lot of you are still looking for a dupe of these Manolos, so I was ecstatic to finally find a new great and budget-friendly look-alike.

RSVP “Sincere” Satin Pumps

Update (06/14/2012): Found yet another look for less alternative, again by RSVP. Available in 4 different colors: black, bronze, cobalt blue and silver satin. If you’re looking a higher heel, check out “Simone” by RSVP which isn’t quite as spot-on as “Sincere” but has a disctinctly higher heel.

RSVP “Zaza” Blue Satin Pumps

Update (09/23/2009): Stumbled upon these awesome Manolo Blahnik look-alikes by RSVP today! If you missed out on the Martinez Valero heels or just couldn’t justify the $160 price tag, these satin pumps look almost identical, but are $60 cheaper. Available in blue, black, ivory and white. Grab these Hangisi dupes while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast.

Shiekh Mitzy Hachi-200 Satin Pumps

Update (09/23/2009): And here’s another alternative to the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps. I know these satin pumps by Shiekh aren’t exactly dupes, but the blue satin and the vamp embellishment reminded me of the designer version above and since these here resemble the Sedaraby pumps by Blahnik famously worn by Carrie Bradshaw a lot, I thought I would just put them here as a budget-friendly alternative for under $50. Also available in pink and black satin!

Martinez Valero “Zenith” Blue Satin Pumps

Do not despair however! Because Martinez Valero has finally heard our prayers! He came up with an almost identical pair of his own blue satin pumps which also have the vamp embellishment, but cost only about 1/10 of the original Manolos. So if you are in need of beautiful yet affordable bridal shoes, these here might be your best bet. But hurry, once the masses get wind of these Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, I guarantee you, they will be gone in a minute!
