Real vs. Steal – Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boots

by Vanessa on October 1, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on October 1, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

I’m not sure why they call these boots 50/50, when they’re 100% awesome, but I’ll take them! Stuart Weitzman has been a household name in evening shoes for a very long time. Many people don’t know that the collection features far more than glitz and glamour for the feet. There’s everyday booties, bags and wedges to name a few. In my fashionable opinion, each year the shoes get better and better looking, but the amazing comfort stays the same. So it’s no surprise that many of Hollywood’s leading ladies are consistently seen in Stuart Weitzman shoes on and off the red carpet. These below photos are sure to get you less sad about leaving summer behind.

Leave it to Chanel to make us crave those #grannyshoes we all deemed ugly when we were teenagers. And if it weren’t for Chanel and the iconic CC-logo on the side of the heel, I doubt these would have been quite as popular as they are right now, but even though I know the greater part of the allure of these shoes can be traced back to just being by Chanel, I somehow still understand why so many bloggers and fashion insiders are so in love with these. The two-tone cap-toe, the mid-height block heel, the convenient slingback; it’s the perfect example of 50s retro chic and an absolute timeless classic. By pairing these shoes with modern pieces such as ripped skinny jeans or a cool biker jacket, you will keep yourself from looking like an actual granny in these. And while I don’t know what the exact retail price is for these, we’re talking about Chanel here after all, so I think it’s safe to say that they’re expensive. And apparently very hard to get ahold of these days.

How gorgeous are these Cat-Embroidered Suede Slippers by Charlotte Olympia? They are a combination of modern design and a classic silhouette. The mini golden heel exhibits pure luxury and the cat-face embroidery adds a fun, young, and unexpected touch. Unfortunately, the price reflects all of these qualities and makes these wonderful flats merely unattainable. However, we have very similar options below for each and every budget!

Liliana Mulberry-1 Cat Face Loafers

For casual footwear with certain uniqueness, these Liliana loafers exemplify how a casual flat/loafer should be like. They are chic and can be very elegant; however, they are also equally fun and interesting to look at! Plus, priced at $19.40, they make a very worthy and inexpensive steal while mimicking the designer look pictured above!

Blink Cat Face Slipper Shoes

I have to admit, these Blink Cat Face Slipper Shoes are probably my favorite! They are a mixture of the high-end luxury designer version yet they also maintain the casual-like feel as the steal above. Though they are a bit pricier than the Liliana loafers, they are more refined in terms of their structure. Priced at £34.99 (approx. $55), they seem to be the most similar to the Charlotte Olympia version while still being affordable! Also, for an extra shipping charge they can be shipped to almost every destination!

Oh, Valentino! How much do I adore your bags, shoes and clothes! As you can see from the many, many Real vs. Steal “Rockstud” posts, Valentino’s “Rockstud” collection is still going strong and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Not only have Valentino kitten heels in their collection, kitten boots have followed now, too. And aren’t they just lovely? I could see myself wearing these fabulous booties day in, day out. If only it weren’t for the $1.375 price tag!

Update (07/20/2016): Spotted Valentino Rockstud look-alike booties by Vaneli in a suede version at Jildor. Again, not the most affordable of dupes ($275!), but possibly worth the splurge (or you might try to sit it out and wait for them to go on sale).

So I’ve been majorly obsessed with these Azzedine Alaïa booties ever since I saw them on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley earlier this year. Now I sure love most of Alaïa’s shoes, but these were especially fabulous to me. Suede ankle boots are a staple for fall and the studded banana heel with the added decorative zippers is a total head-turner. If only I could afford these gems…

Pelle Moda “Palm” Studded Platform Booties

Pelle Moda has a pretty great Alaïa alternative. It’s not an identical 1:1-match, but the overall look is still very Alaïa. Now I just wished the platform wasn’t quite as dominant and the price tag a tad lower. Thanks to our reader Devon for reminding me about these fabulous Alaïa look-a-likes!

VANELi “Candice” Studded Suede Ankle Boots

I found another Alaïa inspired optionon Amazon, but you have to be a bit careful with that one as I’m not completely sure if this is actually a bootie by VANELi. On the Amazon website you see this particular style pictured along with plain ankle boots. Someone’s mixed up two completely different shoe styles I guess, so be careful that you get the right shoe in case you plan to oder it.
