Slides

I know this may not be the best time to be posting about summer sandals now that we’re almost halfway through fall, but I just couldn’t pass up on showing you these effortlessly chic “Tribute” slides by (Yves) Saint Laurent. I have proclaimed my undying love for the “Tribute” platform high heel version in the past and I do still love it dearly, but let’s be real: 5 inch heels just aren’t always a viable footwear option (long beach strolls and cobblestone walks, anyone?). Hence a classic pair of flat sandals like these timeless slides will probably get the most mileage during any summer vacation, especially if you can just easily slide in and out of them and take a quick dip in the pool without having to deal with untying your shoes first. Ain’t nobody got time for that, right? What I also ain’t got though, are the $595 in order to make these gorgeous shoes mine. Someday maybe, but not today. So in the meantime I will have to settle for a look for less option.

Style Bloggers Love Saint Laurent

Style blogger Lucy Williams (Fashion Me Now) has been spotted wearing her Saint Laurent Tribute Slide Sandals various times on her fashion blog.

Massimo Matteo “Tina” Slide Sandals

Fortunately, I have been lucky enough to come across these amazing and spot-on “Tribute” sandal slide dupes by Massimo Matteo! They come in various uppers and colors and look almost identical to the real deal. But the best part? They’re on sale for $55.99 (down from $79) which is less than 10% of the designer version! Now that’s what I call a real steal deal, my fellow budget-conscious fashionistas!

After writing this blog for more than 9 years and scouring the internet for designer dupes even longer, I hardly raise an eyebrow anymore whenever I come across a budget brand or fast-fashion chain copying a high fashion designer. But when designers – with very similar price points – copy amongst each other? Baffling! Which is exactly how I felt when I recently stumbled upon a pair of frayed satin slides by Stuart Weitzman. I knew I had seen that same style somewhere before, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on where. So after a few days I have almost already forgotten about it when I accidentally saw the Gianvito Rossi‘s “Barth” Sandal which looks so much alike, they’re basically designer shoe twins. Both have the same design, the same details, the same fabric and the same color! The prices, however, are somewhat different, but still close enough together to be both considered luxury shoes with Rossi’s sandals costing $645 (now on sale for $258) and Weitzman’s version being priced at $375 (now on sale for $150). I can’t tell who is copying whom though since I don’t know who came out first with their shoe style. Anyway, both sandals are absolutely fabulous and right on trend with the soft pink tone and the silky satin upper, so you can either go with your personal preference or your bank account because style-wise it’s a close tie between these two.

A New Day “Lola” Cross Band Slide Sandals

Update (09/12/2017): Spotted the most beautiful Gianvito Rossi Barth dupe sandals today! They’re by A New Day, Target’s newly launched fashion line, are super affordable at $22.99 and look exactly like the pricey designer version! By the way, I know the label says “Mossimo Supply Co.”, so I guess Target hasn’t said goodbye to Mossimo just yet and probably only had the line rebranded for marketing purposes.

The moment I first laid eyes onto these fancy satin bow slide sandals by Puma which came out as part of the new Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection earlier this month, I knew Rihanna would have another hit on her hands for the fashion-forward, sportswear-loving ladies (…and men since these are also available in men’s sizing). The new styles are supposedly inspired by the luxurious Parisian days of the famously known decadent Queen of France, Marie-Antoinette, the bow slides are a glammed up version of the classic soccer slide with a super cute satin bow adorning the slide strap which come in either a beautiful pastel pink or edgy olive green. The bow slides retail for $90 which is obviously far from being a designer shoe price, but a) these sandals are so in demand right now that they’re almost sold out everywhere and b) not everbody wants to spend almost $100 on a pair of pool slide sandals, so we took a look around to see whether we could find some lower priced alternatives. Spoiler alert: we did!

Satin sandal slides have been a huge trend this year and Gianvito Rossi just knows how to make a chic summer flat that will look fabulous both with dressy dresses or with casual jeans or shorts. I love the effortlessness of being able to simply slide into a shoe and be instantly ready to go. These are the perfect shoes for a summer vacation! If you have the lavish shopping budget to opt for a pair of flats that’ll set you back $595, of course.

Chinese Laundry “Pattie” Frayed Satin Slide Sandals

Luckily, we’ve been able to find a just as chic alternative by Chinese Laundry which looks a lot like the designer real deal above, but will cost you less than $40 (currently on sale for $22.99 down from $49.95). These stylish satin slides come in four different colors, but the rose and the nude version are my personal favorites! Steal deal alert!

Mango “Nilo” Fringe Satin Sandals

If you want to save even more, check out these super cute satin slide sandals by Mango which come in either orange or lavender and are currently on sale for $29.99 (were $49.99). They have a more prominent fringe, but the overall design is still strinkingly similar to the Gianvito Rossi designer version. Love these!

While I admittedly do not know much about The Row other than it’s a fashion label launched by the Olsen twins, I do know that I really, really like their “April” Bow Satin Slides. Intendedly or not, these sandals combine three current fashion trends: 1) knotted bows on 2) flat slides embedded in 3) shiny satin fabric. It’s all about laid-back comfort footwear these days and I have to admit: I like it! What I don’t like though is the $795 price tag on what is basically just a thong sandal. You’re cute, April, but you’re not that cute! We’ll talk again in the sale section.

Sam Edelman “Dariel” Studded Bow Flat Thong Sandals

Update (07/06/2017): Discovered these almost spot-on April dupe sandals by Sam Edelman which look a lot like the real deal but have some extra studs added. Available in various colors, uppers and prints for $70 (sale price!).

If you’re not willing to wait until the real deal goes on sale, feel free to take a look at these fabulous slide sandals by Kensie. They’re almost a spot-on “April” dupe but so much cheaper! I also love the added blush pink color! And who wouldn’t love the price of $47.70? Add to cart, please!

Liliana Dee-1 Satin Slide Sandals

Still not convinced? How about these fabulous and super affordable The Row look-alikes I found at GoJane then? They have the same spot-on design, come in a variety of lovely summer colors including mint green and periwinkle blue and are currently on sale for a steal-worthy $15.91! Definite steal deal alert!

Mango Bow Satin Sandals

And lastly, if you don’t want an obvious designer knock-off, check out this satin bow slide sandal I discovered at Mango which I think is a wonderful alternative to The Row’s “April” slides. These are from Mango’s “Premium” collection, so the price of $149.99 is higher than we are used of Mango, but they are still more than $600 cheaper than the real deal, so there’s that.
