I wonder if – one fine day – I will be the happy owner of a pair of Alexander McQueen heels. I would LOVE to, but thinking that his shoes go for more than 1k per pair, I somehow doubt this is ever going to happen. Not with that kind of budget at least. Anyone out there bothering to tell me the secret of getting rich quick? My shoe addiction refuses to wait any longer to be satisfied.

Madden Girl “Kernal” Zipper Booties

Update (05/27/2010): If you’re wary of high heels, try these “Faithful” knockoffs by Madden Girl. They’re a bit bulky, but the low heel makes them that much more practical for day-to-day wear. The price ain’t too bad either.

Aldo “Haga” Zip Ankle Boots

Update (12/02/2009): Found yet another great alternative to the McQueen booties by Aldo. They are not a complete rip-off, but the inspiration behind these is more than obvious.

Michael Antonio “Monet” Zipper Booties

Update (11/19/2009): Woohoo! I didn’t expect to find a knockoff just as good as the Steve Maddens, but then I stumbled upon these zipper booties by Michael Antonio. They look just as good AND are way cheaper, too. Yay! Also available in brown, berry, grey and red.

Steve Madden “SERYNA” Peep-toe Ankle Boots

I love and hate Steve Madden. Hate because his collection is mostly based on other people’s creativity and LOVE because it makes being fashionable on a budget SO much easier without having to compromise the designer look of a shoe. These Alexander McQueen knockoffs are almost identical, the only thing that’s different is that the zipper isn’t a skull shape, but everything else could pass as the original. The ankle boots are currently on pre-order and will be ready to ship in approx. 4 weeks. However I wouldn’t wait too long to order as this style is probably one of the first to sell out.

Back in October we received a reader request from Yolanda who was looking for a more affordable version of Giuseppe Zanotti‘s I96070 Zipper Booties.

Hi In Their Closet Team,
I have a request to find a look-a-like for this bootie by Giuseppe Zanotti. I have looked high and low, and cannot find one.

Thanks in advance,
Yolanda

It always bugs me big time when I can’t help our readers out immediately, but I always make sure to archive all reader request in case I’ll stumble upon a knockoff in the future.

Pink Duchess “Venus” Zipper Ankle Boots

Imagine my delight when I found these Pink Duchess booties! I instantly remembered Yolanda’s request. While these zipper booties might not be as delicate as the Zanottis their unbeatable price of $27.99 makes them an impulse purchase you won’t have to regret. Available in black, grey or brown.
