We have received quite a few requests from our readers to find dupes for these Phoebe Philo-era Céline Platform Wedge Espadrilles, but until recently we haven’t been able to find any good enough alternatives that would’ve been affordable or suitable enough for us to present to you in good faith. So the requests kept piling up in our inbox and I was constantly on the lookout to find something similar for you. I can definitely see why so many of you obsess over this summery wedge sandal. The “flatform” design of the espadrille wedge will give you some serious height without sacfricing comfort because the arch of the sole isn’t that steep. And while $450 isn’t terribly expensive for French luxury brand shoes, it’s still basically just a pair of fancy jute espadrilles with a couple of leather straps sewn on, so they seem a little bit overpriced if I’m being honest. And also apparently very hard to get your hands on. Second hand shops are probably your best chance if you really crave the original Céline version.

Sole Society Audrina Flatform Espadrilles
Luckily, there’s absolutely no need for you to get on an exhausting shoe hunting trip or having to spend a fortune because I found the perfect, spot-on Céline wedge dupe at Sole Society. Their Audrina espadrilles look virtually identical to the Céline version, they are also made of genuine leather but cost only $79.95 instead of $450! So much saving potential here! And did I mention these come in a variety of gorgeous colors including taupe, brown and blush and are also available in a suede upper? Love, love, looooove these!

Marc Fisher LTD Randall Espadrille Platforms
Another just as awesome and super spot-on Céline look-alike are these espadrille platforms by Marc Fisher LTD. I can practically see no difference between the real or the steal here. These used to retail for $160, but are currently on sale for $60-$90 in various online shops. It’s just too bad sizes are very limited at this point, so if yours is in stock, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy them right on the spot! I also love that these come in many uppers and colors as well. Makes deciding on just one pair SO much harder!
