We have featured many, many shoes and bags from Valentino’s “Rockstud” family already, but must embarrasingly admit that we have missed out on the most popular style yet, the 4 inch high heel t-strap version as seen below. Sorry, guys! So what could possibly be said about this shoe that hasn’t been said before? It’s THE SHOE by Valentino and you’ve probably seen it like a gazillion times in your Instagram feed, in fashion magazines and on the feet of your favorite celebrities and fashion bloggers. But despite the medial Valentino overexposure I am still just as much in love with the Rockstud heels as they day I first saw them! These heels ooze pure elegance and they’re so versatile, too! Dress them up with a lacey LBD or down with some distressed denim, you will look flawless either way! If you can afford them, that is. $995 is not exactly pocket money.

Pink Inc “Saint” Studded T-Strap High Heel Pumps

Update (05/13/2017): Came across these fabulous and spot-on Valentino Rockstud dupes by Pink Inc today. They come in various colors and uppers, cost $199.95 AUD (approx. $150 USD) and also come in a low heel version. Love, love, love these!

Sole Society “Tiia” Studded T-Strap Heels

Update (12/05/2016): Just found out that Sole Society restocked the “Tiia” heel in both black and nude patent, so if you missed out on these fab Valentino Rockstud dupes the first time round, now’s your second chance to snag these pretty pumps.

You might recognize these studded t-strap heels by Sole Society because we have already featured them in the Valentino Rockstud Kitten Heels Real vs. Steal post a while back. That’s because they look like a hybrid between the 4 inch Rockstud and the kitten heel version and could work as a look for less alternative for either of the Rockstuds. And at $69.95 they’re quite affordable, too! Score!

Kaitlyn Pan Pointed Toe Studded Slingback High Heel Pumps

Favorites first! My personal fave Valentino Rockstud dupe comes from Kaitlyn Pan and I think you’ll have a hard time finding better and more spot-on Valentino look-alikes than the ones they have to offer. I’ve been following Kaitlyn Pan’s product catalogamazon for several months now and they have hands down *the* best-looking designer dupes I’ve seen in a very long time. Sure, these $113.99 heels are not the cheapest Valentino dupes around, but look at the 165 customer reviews raving about their Valentino look for less heels (make sure to also check out the customer’s own photos) and you’ll know this money will be a smart investment as you’ll get a good high-quality dupe that will last you for a while. And did I mention these Rockstud knockoffs come in 19 colors? I simply want them all!

Arturo Chiang “Gracen” Pointy Toe Studded Pumps

Another fabulous Valentino Rockstud alternative are these studded t-strap pumps by Arturo Chiang which come in various colors including black, nude, red, navy and gold. The heel on these is half an inch shorter than the real deal and they’re not quite as spot-on as the Kaitlyn Pan version, but they do happen to be cheaper and are also made of genuine leather, so that’s quite a steal deal if you ask me. A couple of sizes are already out of stock, so you better hurry if you find yourself fancying a pair.

Royou Yiuoer Studded T-Strap Pointed-Toe High Heel Pumps

Here’s another super spot-on Valentino Rockstud dupe for you! It’s by a brand called Royou Yiuoer which obviously is a pretty bad word play on Roger Vivier and is most likely an Asian brand. The quality of these Valentino knockoffs looks pretty decent as does the price of $59.99 for genuine leather pumps, but it’s a relatively new brand to me and the shoes have received only one customer review yet (which gives them 5 stars though), so that’s why I’ll recommend this one with reservation. Order at your own risk! You can choose between 13 beautiful colors and uppers!

Loslandifen Studded T-Strap PU High Heel Pumps

If you’re on a tight budget and need a cheap Valentino fix, these Rockstud look-alike PU heels by Loslandifen might do the trick for you. The quality of these is nothing to get all too excited about, but they look like the real deal, are less than $40 and come in a variety of beautiful colors.

We’ve already written multiple times about the items of Valentino‘s famed “Rockstud“-family and as you might remember, up until now I loved every single bag or shoe that came out with the unmistakably studded silhouette. However, when Valentino brought out a “kitten heel” version of their iconic Rockstud high heels, I wasn’t too impressed at first. Sure, I did love them from the front, but the side view? Not so much. Kitten heels just aren’t my cup of tea and probably will never be, but seeing them on the gorgeous bloggers and celebs below, at least I realized that there are women who can get away with wearing kitten heels (skinny girls with beautiful long legs specifically). What still kept me cringing about these kitten heels though is the hefty price tag of $995!

If there’s one thing Stuart Weitzman is exceptionally good at, it’s boots, especially the sexy kind. A few years ago, we had celebs and bloggers going crazy for the widely copied 50/50 OTK boots and now the fashion crowd is lusting after the “Highland”, a super sexy over-the-knee suede pull-on boot which has a lacing detail in the back. And even though I feel like I’ve seen this boot on pretty much every stylish celebrity and fashion blogger by now, I’m still not fed up with it in the slightest way. I also can’t seem to pick a favorite color! The taupe version is so cool and subdued while the black version really pops against bare legs and turns up the sexiness factor by quite a few notches! But as gorgeous as these suede thigh high boots are, at $798 these beauties are way too expensive for me to splurge on the real deal!

Dear “Pigalle“, I know you won’t like this, but there’s a new queen in town, her name is “So Kate” aka shoe perfection and she is probably Louboutin‘s hottest and most coveted style at the moment. One look at her and you will instantly understand why. The shiny black leather, the thinning stiletto heel, the perfectly shaped arch – everything about this shoe is just perfect! Plus, while the price of $675 sure isn’t exactly a bargain, compared to what other Louboutin styles are usually retailing for, these here are on the rather budget-friendlier side of the designer shoe price range. Which is also probably the reason why “So Kate” is constantly on the verge of selling out at nearly every e-tailer. Anyway, this beauty of a high heel has definitely taken the #1 spot on my current shoe wish list and until I have saved up the neccessary $675 to bring them home, I’ll settle for a less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Guoar Pointed-Toe Stiletto Pumps

Update (01/08/2017): Came across these Louboutin look-alikes by Guoar. These seem to be of the “Made in China”-kind of designer dupes, so you better don’t expect top noth quality here, but for $48 these might be a good So Kate alternative (customer reviews average a 4 star rating with plenty of self-submitted buyer’s photos, so you can make an informed buyer’s decision). What I really, really liked about these Loubie dupes though is the variety of colors these come in: 31 (either in faux patent, leather or suede). Love!

Update (07/13/2016): There’s also a fabulous So Kate dupe available by Kaitlyn Pan for $99 and which also comes in nude patent. The design is spot-on, it’s made of genuine leather and if you read the customer reviews for the brand’s other designer inspired shoes, you’ll know you’ve found yourself a good designer dupe with these Louboutin-like beauties. The only drawback (if you consider it to be one) is that the sole is pink instead of Louboutin’s signature red. But everything else looks exactly like Louboutin’s So Kate.

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 $975 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.
