Splurge vs. Steal

Popular Designer Shoes and More Affordable Dupes

I’m sharing five popular designer shoes and some look-a-likes for less! In the photo below, the first pair of shoes is the real deal, the second is a little less expensive (between $90 and $150), and the third is the STEAL (between $20 and $70)!

Let’s Break it Down…

Gucci Mules

The Gucci mules are still very on trend, and I love the convenience of easily slipping on a pair of shoes. If you don’t want to pay for the high end version, there are some really great dupes out there!

Aquazurra Heels

You’ve all heard me talk about how much I love the Aquazurra shoe line. Their shoes are standouts in every way: sexy, surprising and comfortable. See some similar pairs for less in the photo above.

Valentino Rockstuds

These Valentino heels are a blogger favorite, but they have a hefty price tag. See the dupes above.

Hermes Sandals

The Hermes sandals are really pretty and come in multiple colors (I love the white for spring/summer)! If you want some sandals that look similar for less, I suggest checking out Target. They have a lot of really great options for spring/summer sandals!

Note: You can find these sandals on eBay!

Jimmy Choo Pumps

Lastly, the Jimmy Choo pumps…I’ve talked about how I highly suggest investing in this pair of black pumps. They are comfortable, high quality, and a basic must-have! If you’re not ready to make that investment, there are tons of black pumps out there. My favorite dupes are these by Sam Edelman.
