Real vs. Steal – Valentino Rockstud Cage Cork-Wedge Sandals

Update: This post has been updated on July 9, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

Over the last few years Valentino has built quite the extensive “Rockstud” collection. From bags to shoes, everything gets adorned with the famed pyramid studs these days. These cork wedge sandals are the 10th “Rockstud” item we’re covering on this blog. Unsurprisingly, I like these studded caged cork wedges just as much as the rest of the “Rockstud” collection. They’re casual yet sexy and summery but also glamorous and a little wild. If I had $975 to spare, I totally would get these for the upcoming spring and summer season.

Fergie “Valencia” Studded Wedges

If you’re looking for a caged wedge à la Valentino, you might want to consider investing in these studded wedge sandals by Fergie. There’s clearly some heavy Valentino inspiration involved here even though these Fergie wedges have also a few differences that makes them stand out on their own.
