One of the very first dupe hunts I have ever embarked on was for the now iconic Tribute high heel platform sandals by Saint Laurent. I distinctly remember how excited I was when I spotted my first YSL dupe, it almost felt like I’ve uncovered a hidden, magic secret of some sort. Over the years, I’ve kept YSL’s various Tribute designs always very close to my heart because it was for this shoe that kickstarted my dupe career over 10 years ago (OMG, I’m old!). My latest Saint Laurent Tribute obsession is the espadrille wedge version in cognac brown. Isn’t it the most gorgeous shoe you’ve ever seen? It’s the perfect shoe choice for a flowy summer dress. So chic and summery, but also VERY expensive at $695.

Wild Diva Maegan-74 Espadrille Wedge Sandals
I’ve been waiting so long for a good Saint Laurent Tribute espadrille dupe to come along and finally, Wild Diva delivered! The wedge heel is slightly shorter, but otherwise this dupe is spot-on compared to the designer real deal. Plus, it’s on sale for under $25, so you can’t beat the price! Available in brown, ivory and black faux leather. But you better hurry as there aren’t many pairs left!

Rock & Candy Fola T-Strap Espadrille Wedges
Another great Saint Laurent dupe are these Rock & Candy by Zigi t-strap wedge espadrilles. Again, the wedge heel on these is also shorter than on the designer version, but I think that might be an advantage because 5″ wedges can feel very heavy on the feet and are also often kind of hard to walk in, so you might be better off getting these instead. And did I mention they’re $29.99 (sale price)? Add to cart, please!
