The Look for Less - Valentino Rockstud Shoes

Very few footwear styles have reached cult status like the Valentino Rockstud collection. The Valentino Rockstud heels are longtime celebrity and blogger favorites, and with good reason. They come in many colors and styles, and with their gleaming studs and patent leather finish, they strike the right balance between edgy and feminine. Furthermore, they work just as well with casual denim (as shown in red on Blair of Atlantic-Pacific) and shorts (as seen on Olivia Palermo) as they do with chic, flirty skirts (as demonstrated by Emma Stone).

Something about the studded trim has an appeal that's widespread and timeless.

June 12, 2018 update - I just bought these studded flat sandals pictured below on Amazon for under $50. They come in many colors and styles, run true to size, and have a lightly padded footbed. The studs are more shiny in person, making them look more expensive. They are made of synthetic materials, so the straps and buckles are a bit stiff when you first put them on. Otherwise, I'm happy with them and I'm thinking of buying another pair in natural. If your feet are wide, I'd go up a size.

June 22, 2017 update - If you're looking for studded gladiator sandals, I love the Sam Edelman "Eavan" style. I finally got a pair on sale (get 'em here under $60) in the desert tan colorway, and I love them for their comfort and their large circular studs. Shop the "Eavan" sandals on sale before they sell out.

June 20, 2017 update - I own the Sam Edelman 'Demi' sandals pictured below in two colors. They run true to size, are very comfortable, and have held up with well frequent wear over many months. (I wear the "desert" colorway all the time!) Shop them on sale for under $60 before they sell out.
