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 $845 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

bebe “Petra” Studded Flat Sandals

I was so happy to have stumbled upon these amazingly similar bebe gladiator sandals. They do miss one horizontal strap, but otherwise they’re a fabulous Valentino look-a-like. And did I mention they’re currently on sale for $39.99 (were $59.99)? What a great deal, right? But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.

It seems that every celebrity at one point or another is seen flaunting around in glamorous Louboutins. Whether it’s the sophisticated high heel or a classic flat, Christian Louboutin has become a staple in the closets of the A-listers. The “Pigalle Plato” Platform Pumps are no different as the design is impeccably exhibited with versatility, in an uptown or downtown manner. The platform adds further height to the elevated stature of the shoe contributing to the elegance. Unfortunately, I don’t have $775 to spend on these beautiful shoes, but the alternative below is quite dazzling.
