Real vs. Steal – Valentino Allover Rockstud Sandals

by Roseanne on December 27, 2012

With the current craze surrounding the entire Valentino Rockstud collection, it is no surprise that these Allover Rockstud Sandals have surfaced, and may possibly become the new staple shoe this summer. They feature an entirely neutral leather tone and are embroidered with a minimal yet somewhat edgy stud appliqué. Although these beauties may be worth the $995, they are a complete investment, and definitely do not fit within my budget. While they are a product of beautiful craftsmanship, we have an almost identical look-a-like below that is much more affordable.

Okay, so the detailing and heel structure are slightly off, but every other aspect of this “Hunnie” Studded Sandals by Steve Madden are practically identical to the Valentino Rockstuds above. They are so similar that it is hard to believe the hefty price difference, as these are priced more affordably priced at $109.95! These “Hunnie” Sandals share the same aesthetic and boast a very familiar feel as the designer version, and because of the neutral tones, they are very wearable. After all, versatility is key, and these sandals exemplify that statement perfectly. Not to mention, they are available in both black and neutral leather.
