Real vs. Steal – YSL Tribtoo Pumps

by Irina on April 18, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on April 18, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Every once in a while there comes a shoe that will stand out from the masses, a shoe that first becomes a trend and later will be considered iconic (think Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy LBD from Breakfast at Tiffany’s). The YSL Tribtoo / Trib Two / Tribute Two Pump has great potential to become a shoe legend. The highly coveted 5″ inch stiletto pumps are virtually sold out EVERYWHERE and their hefty price tag prevents them from being a realistic shoe dream for most of us not-rich-by-default fashionistas.

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 “FORTAY” Pumps

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.

    I would say Beyonce, I feel those heels works better with a tight jean/ pants.

  • SULU

    Hi everyone!
    I am selling a pair of the BEBE LIZA platform pumps in Black SIZE 7. They were a little to small for me so I would like to pass them on to a fellow shoe lover. They are completely sold out online. Let me know if you are interested!

  • Hi SULU,

    well if size 7 would fit me, I’d be your man (well, er…woman). But I have size 8.5. Such a crap!

    Maybe you should include your asking price and your email adress or put it up on eBay and post the link here (include your email adress in the comment area not the form because of privacy reasons a commenter’s email adress isn’t published).

    Good luck selling them!

  • Found these at Charlotte Russe for $24.99

  • Patent Platform Pumps


  • Amber

    Do they have them in white leather? Are these ysl? Where can i find these white pumps cassie is wearing here?

  • Allison

    SULU – I know this is MONTHS AND MONTHS late – but if you still have those Lizas, I’d like to see them!!!

  • Hi Allison, if I’m not mistaken Bebe is planning to restock on these pumps very soon. I think I’m going to check on that. If these will be restocked, I definitely update the post to let you all know. 🙂

  • david

    Please tell me if BEBE restock or WETSEAL restock because I want to buy a pair for my girl

  • Awww, that’s so sweet of you, David. I’ll keep you updated on these heels. Thanks for your comment.

  • david

    Sulu Im interested in the size 7 Liza Bebe shoes, are you still selling them?



  • david

    My girl have a pair of Bimini Desiree shoes, how can I upload a photo to this page so you can see how beautifull they look when wearing.



  • david

    Hi, I found Bebe Liza high heels in mexico city at ANTARA MALL. Im super happy.

  • Great you found them, David. Your girlfriend sure will love these heels. 😉

  • Suyen

    Irina, would you please, please, please let me know if WetSeal re-stocks these!

    By the way, take a look at these guys:

  • Hi Suyen,

    sure I’ll definitely let you know, but I’m afraid these won’t be restocked again as they already have been restocked twice I think. :-/

  • Suyen

    Ohhh 🙁
    Ok, thank you so much anyways.
    I’ll keep looking for the perfect (and affordable) pair. 😀

  • Danielle

    Hi Irina!!

    I definitely missed the boat on those amazing BeBe Liza pumps!!! Do you know if BeBe has any plans on restocking them? (in ANY color)

    Thank You!
