I am a huge fan of Jennifer Aniston‘s style. She delicately walks the edges of trends while always maintaining a classic style that I’m pretty sure we’ll never look back on, thinking “God, WHAT was she wearing?” Last summer Jen started rocking a pair of Stuart Weitzman espadrilles that had me drooling. Clearly I wasn’t the only fan though; the Alex Espadrille Wedges flew off the shelves and were forever more impossible to find. They’re back now and available on several e-retailer sites and I would probably kill to own a pair. Seriously, I recommend you not being around me right now. Sadly these are just out of my price range.

Celebrities Love Stuart Weitzman
Celebs such as Jennifer Aniston and Eva Mendes have been spotted wearing Stuart Weitzman Alex Espadrille Wedges.
Journee Collection Evolet Espadrille Wedge Sandals
Update (02/13/2019): Didn’t expect to find any more dupes of Stuart Weitzman’s Alex wedges after such a long time, but these woven wedge sandals by Journee Collection would make a great look for less alternative, so I couldn’t resist including them here on the list. The braided straps may be faux leather instead of textile, the wedge heel is also significantly lower and they don’t come in the original olive color, but the overall look is still very much inspired by Stuart Weitzman. Other color options include navy, black, tan and grey. Price: $54.99.

Sacred Heart Arven Espadrilles
Update (05/22/2011): The Alex dupe wave just won’t stop! I keep finding new Stuart Weitzman wedge look-alikes day in, day out. But these here by Sacred Heart are actually really, really amazing. They are soooo spot-on and look at the price: $49.99! This one might deserve a dupe award or something (still can’t loose the feeling that these are also just rebranded, look at N.Y.L.A.’s Colby, Black Rooster’s Colb and Bakers’ Midtown, they all look completely identical).

Available in taupe (shown), ivory or black.
