Every few couple years or so, a new designer ankle boot emerges to take over the fashion world by storm. It then quickly becomes an iconic must-have staple in the seemingly endless shoe closets of every fashion-conscious stylist, celebrity, influencer and editor. Right now I feel like it’s Givenchy turn for some serious shoe fame. Their “Prue” ankle boot is a classic, flat biker boot with 4 buckled straps and micro-stud details which you’ve probably seen dozens of times on the feet of your favorite Insta-people by now. It’s a shoe versatile enough to work with a lot of different fashion styles, but still detailed enough to stand out on its own to spice up an otherwise basic or bland outfit. Unfortunately, this much fabulousness comes at a very hefty price: $1.395! Let’s not kid ourselves: that’s a lot of money which probably would be more wisely spent on other, more useful things. You know, boring grown-up stuff like rent, mortgage, food and health insurance. Luckily, we’ve found various just as stylish, affordable Givenchy Prue alternatives that will leave enough money in your pockets to pay the bills.

Steve Madden Reena Studded Buckle Booties
Update (11/14/2017): I guess one Givenchy look-alike wasn’t enough to capitalize on this major shoe trend style, so Steve Madden came up with a second one which looks a little more spot-on to the real deal compared to Madden’s Pursue ankle boots. Available in black faux leather for $89.95.

Update (11/14/2017): Also stumbled upon these super fab studded booties by French fashion brand Le Temps Des Cerises which look so much like the high end designer version.

Price: $48. If you’re a student, you should definitely take advantage of Missguided’s student discount which they offer all year round.

Steve Madden “Pursue” Studded Buckle Booties
Let’s start with Steve Madden. “Pursue” is an ankle boot which is obviously inspired by the Givenchy Prue above without being a blatant copy which costs roughly 10% of the designer real deal.

Office Academic Leather Stud Buckle Boots
Another one of my Givenchy dupe favorites are these lovely Office ankle boots I spotted at ASOS recently. Again, heavily inspired by the pricey designer original, but not an identical 1:1 copy.
