When we spotted the new ‘Erin’ from ShoeDazzle in the September arrivals we thought that it looked kind of familiar. Then today I happened to stumble upon the newest ‘Rockstud’ from Valentino and it all came together. The ‘Erin’ is definitely inspired by this Valentino style. However, it comes in black and nude whereas the ‘Rockstud’ is available in red.
Take a second and check out both brands version of this studded T strap pump. Then we’ll see if you think the ‘Erin’ is a worthy stand in:
Valentino ‘Rockstud’, $945
We love the rich red color of this heel paired with the neutral nude trim. The gold stud details add an edgy finish and the pointed toe creates a sleek silhouette.
Erin in Black, $39.95 at ShoeDazzle
Erin in Tan, $39.95 at ShoeDazzle
These heels are so similar to the ‘Rockstud’ that it’s scary. We would wear the ‘Erin’ with anything that we’d pair the Valentino version with and the price is a small fraction of the latter.
What do you think? Which one of these heels would you go for? Designer or Bargain?
