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!

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.

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!

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 $30 and come in a variety of beautiful colors.

Great flats are hard to find. Especially ones that will look chic even with work attire. These ballerinas by Valentino are perfect to wear with chic cigarette pants to the office and look just as fantastic with leggings and a tunic on the weekend. The studs give them a little bit of a vampy edge while the color makes fair-skinned legs look longer. There is even a tiny hint of a heel to balance them out and provide an extra bit of polish. But even though they are quite gorgeous, they are also a little too expensive for everyday flats. The concept is not completely lost though; there are at least a couple inspired-by versions out there for way less. Keep scrolling down for more tips and info on where to find them!

C Label Hudson 10 Studded Ballerina Flats

This first version by C Label has the same studs as the original as well as the beautiful overall shape and construction. The small difference is their slightly higher heel which I love because even though flats are phenomenal for long days on your feet, that extra half inch goes a long way. But that definitely wouldn’t change how you’d wear them; they would still be perfect with skinny or tailored boot cut trousers and a feminine blouse for work. Just throw on a colorful cardigan and instantly feel inspired by a fresh new take on a little 1950’s glamour.

GoJane Studded Flats

The second option we found is from GoJane, and at under $25 for the pair, you can be sure you’re getting a steal. This style works especially well when worn with jeans and a tee for running errands or grabbing brunch or coffee over the weekend with friends. The cut of the shoe is the exactly same as the designer version, the only difference is the hardware and studs, which are more modest in design. But while the other styles might be dressier, these still look sharp and classic; plus your feet will thank you for giving them a day of rest once in a while.

Does this sound familiar? You see something and are really turned off by it first, but then, the more you look at it, the more it grows on you until you become obsessed with it? That happens to me quite often I must admit. In almost every case it’s a shoe which I first hate, then like and finally LOVE! The last time this happened to me was with these lace-up ankle boots by Ann Demeulemeester.

Ann Demeulemeester Leather Open-Front Lace-Up Ankle Boots
($966, Forward by Elyse Walker)

P.S.: Also available at S|Sense, Saks Fifth Avenuels, Saks Fifth Avenue (rose)ls, Farfetchls & Vestiaire Collective.

When I first saw them, I thought they were way too clunky for a woman’s feet. But I couldn’t help but be fascinated by them, so I decided to give them another chance and googled them. Sometimes, in order to be able to see a shoe’s full potential, you have to see it on a person’s feet. That was definitely the case with the Ann Demeulemeester lace-up boots. The moment I saw the models flaunting them in a mini dress, I was irrevocably in LOVE!

Jeffrey Campbell Corset Heels

Update (10/05/2009): More good news! Free People have finally restocked Jeffrey Campbell’s Ann Deumeulemeester knockoffs. Missed out on these the first time? Now is your chance to get hold of these cuties!

Sometimes I think everything Jeffrey Campbell does these days is copying other people’s work. Well, it may be unethical, but at least it allows us budget fashionistas to be fashionable without the hefty price tag. Look at these beautiful, almost identical knockoffs. Pretty amazing, huh? They sure are shamelessly expensive for knockoffs, but even priced at $198 they are about $700 les than the originals, so they can’t be TOO bad, right? All sizes are still available, but you better be fast as these knockoffs won’t stay for too long (they’re also exclusively sold at Free People, so if they are gone there, you won’t find them anywhere else).
