Real vs. Steal – Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boots

by Vanessa on November 28, 2016

Update: This post has been updated on November 28, 2016. 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.

I kind of have a soft spot for chunky high heel sandals. I know they’re not the most flattering shoe to grace a woman’s feet, but for some reason I like them anyway. To me, they represent the underdog of the shoe world. Not really popular but low-key cool. Doesn’t sound convincing to you? Well, then have a look at the buckled Givenchy sandals below and try telling me these ain’t cool! Because I think they’re totally kickass! And not too high. Plus, they have a chunky heel which makes them probably quite comfortable, too. The only downside though? Well, these babies cost $880! Gulp!

Kelsi Dagger “Gina” Buckle Sandals

As much as I love chunky heels, there’s no way I could justify spending such a huge amount of money on shoes, so luckily, I found these almost identical Kelsi Dagger “Gina” Buckle Sandals which sell for much less than the real deal. I also really like the red inner sole on these. Looks kinda Louboutin-esque, no? Anyway, these are made of real leather and come in either black, luggage or greige. You like?

Gianvito Rossi has easily become one of my favorite shoe designers in the last couple years. His last few collections have all been absolutely wonderful and I loved almost every one of Rossi’s shoe styles! Including this summery, nude high heel sandal. I really like how Kim paired hers with both casual and more dressy outfits. Too bad these darlings come with a price tag of $995. Not really my kind of shoe shopping budget, I’m afraid.

Via Spiga “Tarren” Strappy Ankle Cuff Sandals

UPDATE (08/12/2014): Stumbled upon these Via Spiga strappy sandals today and thought they would be a great alternative to the Gianvito Rossi heels above.

Heart Soul “Devina” Strappy Dress Heels

Luckily, these Gianvito Rossi dupes by Heart Soul fit totally into my budget. They look so much like their designer counterparts, don’t they? But the best part is that they are currently on sale for a wallet-friendly $49.99! Just don’t expect the same quality from these faux leather heels as from the designer originals made in Italy.

Most of us are still far, far away from even thinking about wearing boots again, but the day will come, this I tell you. So in order to hint you into the boot-wearing season I’ll start off by showing you a super fabulous pair of tall Christian Louboutin high heel boots. I mean, these are perfect, no? A boot that’ll stand the test of time and will last you a lifetime (assuming you’ll take good care of it). Not only is it amazingly crafted, it’s also a timeless classic that will still be in style 10, 20 years from now. You could wear these boots with jeans like Taylor Swift, pair them with a pencil skirt, a grey wool dress maybe – pretty much anything actually, that’s just how versatile they are. Now if the $1.295 price tag is doable for you, hop over to the Louboutin website and treat yourself to these beauties, otherwise keep on reading to discover an eerily similar alternative.

ALDO “Morono” High Heel Boots

UPDATE (06/01/2013): Just came across another great Louboutin boot alternative. Check out these tall high heel boots by ALDO which are currently on sale for under $90 and available in either black and brown leather or taupe and black suede.

Via Spiga “Bethany” Boots

Now these boots by Via Spiga may not have the lustworthy red soles, however that really doesn’t take away from their fabulousness. They’re just as beautiful as the Louboutin boots and will make you look equally stylish. While they might not be a “steal” per se at $168.98, it still is a good deal/investment since these boots are currently on sale down from $398. So if you’re in need of a good pair of delicate boots for fall and winter, you might want considering these.

There’s something about YSL shoes that always keeps me fascinated. I think it’s how most of their shoes have this chunky, awfully impractical platform and the resulting ultra-high stiletto heel that comes with such a platform shape. Perfect examples are the Tribute sandals, the infamous YSL Trib Two pumps and also these black suede platform sandals below which I find myself being quite fond of.

Kylie Minogue Loves YSL

Kylie Minogue has always been a dedicated fan of Yves Saint Laurent and can be often seen wearing something YSL like 2 days ago when she was papped at the airport in Lisbon, Portugal wearing the cutout platforms.

bebe “Maya” Leather Cutout Sandals

For weeks I was desperately trying to identify these bebe knockoffs. I think I already mentioned my knockoff intuition in a previous post. I knew that these platforms were designer knockoffs, but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. The mystery is now finally resolved. If you prefer a different color and want to cut off the price by more than 50%, there is also a tiger-printed suede version of the Maya sandal available which is on sale for $38.49.
