OK, my fellow frugal fashionistas. Remember when I told you about some great YSL Tribtoo pumps knockoffs many, many moons ago? Well, if you haven’t ordered yet, you might be the luckiest shoe lover on earth. Why? Because I have found the best YSL Tribtoo (or Trib Two?) knockoffs EVER! And I do mean what I say. Look at the original YSL pump. Perfection! I’m still in love with these shoes even if it seems each D-List celebrity owns a pair now.

Celebrities Love Yves Saint Laurent

The YSL Tribtoo Pumps have been worn by like at least 2 dozen celebrities, from A-Listers to D-Listers. Almost anyone who’s rich and famous owns a pair. Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, Lucy Liu, Christina Aguilera, etc. The YSL Tribtoo Pump was probably the most worn shoe on the red carpet last year and there’s no end in sight for 2009.

Pour La Victoire “Zimmer” Platform Pumps

Update (05/30/2012): After quite a while Pour La Victoire decided to release a new great YSL Tribtoo alternative called the “Zimmer” pump which I sadly love a bit more than my namesake, the PLV “Irina” pump.

Kelsi Dagger “Linzy” Platform Pumps

Update (10/15/2010): Well, well. Look at this. Kelsi Dagger is the lower-priced line of Pour La Victoire and doesn’t their “Linzy” pump look JUST like the PLV Irina? Only it costs half the price. I’ve been a great fan of the “Irina” pumps (obviously!), but the Kelsi Dagger Linzy is just as nice. And there are so many colors to choose from. Which one is your favorite? Personally, I want them ALL!

Pour La Victoire “Irina” Platform Pumps

Update (07/12/2010): OK, so I might be slightly biased to call these Pour La Victoire platform pumps the best YSL Tribtoo knockoffs because of the name, but even though these here are more tamed I’m still over-the-moon in love with these lustworthy heels.

Wet Seal Round Toe Platform Pumps

Update (01/12/2010): Found another YSL Tribtoo alternative by Wet Seal. When I checked out the new arrivals on Wet Seal today I jumped out of my seat. They’ve added a pair of platform pumps that are so close to the YSL Tribtoos and cost only $24.50?! This must be DEAL OF THE MONTH or so. The pumps are currently available in black and pink and if I were you I’d snag both colors NOW because these heels will go fast.

bebe “Liza” Leather Platform Pumps

Feast your eyes on these YSL knockoff darlings: bebe‘s Liza Leather Platform Pumps. This is probably the closest you’ll ever come to the real deal with a $149 budget. Huge knockoff crush potential! They are currently available in either black leather or patent tortoise shell, but on the website they are also pictured in off white, so I guess you’ll be able to order these in that color soon, too.

European readers rejoice! British shoe retailer Office (confusing name, right?) is selling a stunning pair of YSL Tribtoo Pump knockoffs for £75 ($110 or 80€). The pumps look very well manufactured and are also available in brown/croc leather. P.S.: they also ship internationally!

Gianni Bini “Desiree” Pumps

These YSL knockoffs were orginally spotted by a reader from The Look 4 Less. These pumps by Gianni Bini are a great alternative to the pricey YSL Tribtoos and come in either black patent or patent croc brown.

Steve Madden‘s “FORTAY” Pump is also a good alternative if you are lusting for an affordable YSL Tribtoo version that is not as extreme as the original.

  • Great! I really hope they turn out to be the way you picture them. You’re going to look fab I’m certain.

  • erica

    I don’t think the Pour La Victoire “Irina” Platform Pumps beat the Bebe “Liza” Leather Platform Pumps to be honest. The steepness of the sole on the YSL is only accurately mimicked by the Bebe pair. The PLV pair look good, but I feel the Bebe has the edge. Anyways what do I know I’m just a guy and my gf won’t be happy until I buy her the original black patent leather YSL pair .. yikes.. there goes my HD TV haha!!

  • Shan, I wish my boyfriend would roam fashion blogs to buy me a pair of YSL heels, but I guess you can’t have it all. 😉 I agree with you that the Bebe pumps are the most identical knockoffs, but imho the PLV pumps look slightly more sophisticated. Of course I’d love to possess both pairs. 🙂

    Thank you for your comment!

  • erica
  • Great find, Erica. Thank you for alerting us about this knockoff, I’m including it right now. 🙂

  • Shan The Heels Loving Guy

    @Irina.. haha, I think sometimes I’m more excited to go heels shopping than my gf is! How about your bf and my gf go have coffee and we go shoe shopping? yay LMAO!!! To be honest, the PLV pair do have the double stitching on the front which the Bebe pair don’t have, so really it is actually more even with a give and take on both sides. But yeah the PLV pair do look good too. Great find on those heels btw Erica. Wow if they just did a patent leather version they would be great! I find it surprising that ALDO don’t have something similar. They are usually my go to store when you see a designer brand but want something similar and cheaper.

  • euriel

    Gianni Bini, has a great version of the Trib 2, its called desire, they were at dillard’s…. i have them in black and brown croc, loves them!!!
