Studs

Update: This post has been updated on November 28, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

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.

I just wish they would’ve gone without the brand name stud strap, but oh well, you can’t always have it all, now can you? Price: €139.95.

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

Steve Madden “Pursue” Studded Buckle Booties

Let’s start with Steve Madden. “Pursue” is an ankle boot which is obviously inspired by the Givenchy Prue above without being a blatant copy which costs roughly 10% of the designer real deal.

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.

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!

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.

Gucci‘s Soho bag pictured below is a chic and classic crossbody and as far as branding goes rather subtle with its embossed iconic GG logo emblem, at least for being Gucci after all. But if you’d ask whether I think these stitched on double GGs are worth the multiple hundred dollar markup that puts this bag near 4 digit price territory? Not really. And while I’ve declared my love for Valentino many times over, especially when it’s something from their famed “Rockstud” collection, I am not a millionaire and have quite a few monthly bills to pay, so there’s no way I could possibly justify spending almost 2k on one bag. Luckily though you can get the best of both worlds, Gucci and Valentino, for (much, much) less – on sale even! – by opting for Kate Spade‘s fabulous Tinley bag which looks like a very pretty mashup of Gucci’s Soho and Valentino’s Rockstud Rolling crossbody. Tinley originally retailed for $278, but is now on sale for $181 which would save you $669 on the Gucci bag and $1.564 on the Valentino one. A total of $2.414 saved if you decide to go for the look for less version instead of buying the two designer bags.

If you are familiar with the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you will all remember the studded Chloé Susan (also sometimes called “Susanna” or “Suzanna”) ankle boots below as they’ve created quite a buzz among fashion bloggers in 2009. Even though they cost more than a grand, people bought them like crazy and the boots soon were sold out everywhere.

The studded ankle boots were part of Chloé’s Pre-Fall 2008 collection and came in an array of colors like red, white, black and green (my personal favorite!).

Kate Bosworth & Sienna Miller Love Chloé

Famous fashionistas Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller both sported the studded ankle boots in red. Kate was literally obsessed with those boots and wore them whenever possible last year. And can we blame her? They are so cute and both women looked absolutely fabulous wearing them, didn’t they?

They come in various colors and uppers and you can even choos between different metal hardwares (silver or gold). The price is a little steep at €260, but I don’t think I have seen a Chloé Susanna dupe as spot-on as this one, so it might be worth the investment! You better don’t wait around for them to go on sale because these babies will sell out fast!

Jeffrey Campbell “Starburst” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (05/30/2012): Jeffrey Campbell‘s highly-coveted “Starburst” booties are now available for European fans for at British shoe e-tailer Office. Better get them quick before they sell out!

Free People always seems to get the best Jeffrey Campbell styles. First they got the awesome Ann Deumeulemeester lace-up boots and now they sell knockoffs of the iconic Chloé studded ankle boots (Free People call this style “Northern Lights” while JC and other retailers named it “Starburst”). Don’t they look almost identical? The heel is a bit off, but the studs and buckles are pretty close to the original. The only downsides are that the Jeffrey Campbell studded booties don’t come in red. But the boots are available in black, white and brown, so if you always wanted a budget-friendlier alternative, these Jeffrey Campbell knockoffs are probably your last and only chance as the Chloé booties are a couple of seasons old now.

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.

Sole Society “Tiia” Studded T-Strap Heels

Update (12/05/2016): Just found out that Sole Society restocked the “Tiia” heel in both black and nude patent, so if you missed out on these fab Valentino Rockstud dupes the first time round, now’s your second chance to snag these pretty pumps.

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!

Loslandifen Studded T-Strap PU High Heel Pumps

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.

For someone who has always loved the delicacy of high heels and feminine silhouettes when it comes to shoes, lately I’ve been finding myself strangely gravitating more and more to tougher, more masculine footwear for some reason. So much so that I recently decided to take the plunge and went on to buy my very first pair of black, Doc Martens-like lace-up combat boots a few weeks ago and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since! I wear them with black skinny jeans, ripped denim, a flowy knit dress, a cute A-line skirt, you name it; everything seems to kind of work with these boots that will toughen up any look in an instant with their rough and functional design. And if you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know I have a soft spot for everything Alexander McQueen. So how could I not love these super badass silver studded metal cap-toe boots? They’re definitely not for the faint of heart and certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I guess this is one of the main reasons I find myself so drawn to them! These heavy boots look like they could easily be part of a funky steampunk cosplay costume. But in a good way! Now that we’ve established the fabulousness of these boots – have you seen that price tag? $1.995! One grand per foot! Sadly, this kind of pricing doesn’t exactly fall into my personal shoe shopping bracket.

Jeffrey Campbell “Gustine” Studded Cap-Toe Boots

Jeffrey Campbell to the rescue! Now look at these stud-adorned combat lace-up boots here! Aren’t they just so crazy cool? I love the oversized buckles! They’re not identical dupes of the McQueen boots above, but certainly similar enough to double as a great, look for less designer alternative if you can’t afford or simply don’t want to spend 2k on a pair of boots. These darling here might not be a steal at $179.95, but they are over 90% cheaper than the real deal which – I would say – you could consider a steal deal in comparison! Some sizes are already sold out though, so you better be fast if you want to get ahold of these stylish studded biker boots!
