While I admittedly do not know much about The Row other than it’s a fashion label launched by the Olsen twins, I do know that I really, really like their April Bow Satin Slides. Intendedly or not, these sandals combine three current fashion trends: 1) knotted bows on 2) flat slides embedded in 3) shiny satin fabric. It’s all about laid-back comfort footwear these days and I have to admit: I like it! What I don’t like though is the $795 price tag on what is basically just a thong sandal. You’re cute, April, but you’re not that cute! We’ll talk again in the sale section.

A New Day Stacia Knotted Satin Slide Sandals
Update (04/22/2019): While browsing through the new arrivals shoe section at Target, I happened to come across these satin knotted slides by A New Day and thought they’d make a lovely look for less option for the designer sandals above. Available in yellow mustard, navy and jewel green for $22.99. According to the customer reviews these are a fab and comfy steal deal buy!

Sam Edelman Dariel Studded Bow Flat Thong Sandals
Update (07/06/2017): Discovered these almost spot-on April dupe sandals by Sam Edelman which look a lot like the real deal but have some extra studs added. Available in various colors, uppers and prints for $70 (sale price).

Liliana Dee-1 Satin Slide Sandals
Still not convinced? How about these fabulous and super affordable The Row look-alikes I found at GoJane then? They have the same spot-on design, come in a variety of lovely summer colors including mint green and periwinkle blue and are currently on sale for a steal-worthy $14.97! Definite steal deal alert!

MANGO Bow Satin Sandals
And lastly, if you don’t want an obvious designer knock-off, check out this satin bow slide sandal I discovered at MANGO which I think is a wonderful alternative to The Row’s April slides. These are from MANGO’s Premium collection, so the price of $149.99 is higher than we are used of MANGO, but they are still more than $600 cheaper than the real deal, so there’s that.
