Remember our designer shoe twins blog post from March where we noticed how similar a particular shoe design was between Aquazzura and Giuseppe Zanotti? Both high-end designer versions retailed for over $600 and some of you have asked whether we could suggest a few budget-friendly dupes for Aquazzura’s sleek, minimalistic mirrored high heel sandal. And we’re happy to report that we were very successful in our dupe research! Not only did we find ONE but TWO fabulous and spot-on Aquazzura dupes with price points ranging from $160 for a high-quality look for less and one that is a more budget-conscious alternative for under $50.

Schutz Luriane Metallic High Heel Slingback Sandals
First up is this gorgeous and insanely spot-on high heel slingback by Schutz which is also my absolute favorite Aquazzura dupe (so far). Luriane is a tad pricey at $160, but Brazilian footwear brand Schutz is well-known for the high quality standard of their shoes, so it might be worth splurging on. Plus, you still save $535 compared to the expensive real deal by Aquazzura. Also available in gold metallic as well as black and nude nubuck leather. Love, love, love!
