So I’m sure a lot of you will absolutely hate Stella McCartney‘s Britt / Elyse lace-up flatforms. Not only because of their polarizing design, but also because Stella McCartney doesn’t use animal originated materials for her line yet still charges a whopping $840 for these faux leather brogues. However, I’m also quite positively sure that just as many will loooove Stella McCartney for the very same reasons. While I personally can’t picture myself rocking these, I do somehow see its androgynous appeal to others – viewed through the man repelling lens, of course. But the price though? Still a total turn-off!

Style Bloggers & Fashion Insiders Love Stella McCartney
Various style bloggers and fashion insiders (including Stella McCartney herself) have been spotted wearing Stella McCartney Britt Faux Glossed-Leather Platform Brogues.
Steve Madden Unfazed Lace-Up Wedge Platforms
Update (12/09/2018): Spotted these fab Stella McCartney platform dupes at Steve Madden today! The SM “inspired” version has a few differences such as the higher wedge arch and the perforated upper, but the overall look is still very similar to Stella McCartney’s originals. Plus, Madden’s dupes are also made of man-made materials, so these are technically also vegan-friendly just like its pricey designer twin. Available in either black, nude or white faux leather for $99.95.

Jeffrey Campbell Berliner Lace-Up Platform Oxfords
Enter Jeffrey Campbell. Crazy shoe designs have always been a part of the brand’s aesthetical vision, so I wasn’t the least surprised to find this Stella McCartney “Britt” dupe in JC’s repertoire. As usual, Jeffrey Campbell’s prices aren’t the easiest on a middle-class woman’s budget, but the design is spot-on and they’re still more than $800 cheaper than the pricey originals.
