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.

Price: $60. If you’re a student, you should definitely take advantage of Missguided’s student discount which they offer all year round.

Sol Sana Maxwell Studded Flat Ankle Boots

Another great Givenchy look for less option would be this microstud buckle bootie by Sol Sana which is one of the most expensive alternatives as it retails for $200. This ankle boot is heavily inspired by Givenchy’s Prue but not an identical dupe or copy if this is a concern of yours.

EGO Ximena Studded Detail Biker Boots

A rather spot-on but inexpensive Givenchy Prue look-alike are these faux leather booties by EGO which retail for affordable £34.99. But let me mention the best part: students get a 25% discount, that’s a saving of almost £9 on these booties! Steal deal alert! A similar shoe style available is the “Halo” which has a more traditional biker boot design.

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. If you’re not a fan of excessive studding, a similar version sans studs on the buckle straps is the “Amsterdam” boot (£90), also by Office.

Looking for a spot-on Givenchy look-alike made of genuine leather? Then have a look at this studded boot by Bestowal I came across at Choies. The design is almost identical and the price of $115.99 seems somewhat reasonable.

So I’m sure a lot of you will absolutely hate Stella McCartney‘s “Britt” flatforms. Not only because of their polarizing design, but also because Stella McCartney doesn’t use animal originated materials for her line yet still charges a whopping $995 for these faux leather brogues. However, I’m also quite positively sure that just as many will loooove Stella McCartney for the very same reasons. While I personally can’t picture myself rocking these babies, I do somehow see its androgynous appeal to others – viewed through the man repelling lens, of course. But the price though? Still a total turn-off!
