The Look for Less - Valentino Rockstud Shoe Dupes

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. 

The Real Deal

April 2019 update - I bought these Valentino Rockstud PVC sandals in powder (poudre) at Neiman Marcus. If you're looking for the designer version but don't want to pay $1000, these are a great alternative because they are jelly sandals, and have a price point of under $500. Half the cost, all the style, and those shiny studs! I'm very happy with my purchase because the quality is excellent. The PVC sandals run true to size in length, but because the straps at the toe were snug on me, I went up a size. I'm a U.S. size 7 and went with the 38 so they wouldn't be tight. They also come in black or in water rose (a pretty blush pink).

They have thin soles with light cushioning in the ball of the foot, and the studs look as shiny as the designer versions. They're the best Valentino Rockstud sandal dupes I've seen online.

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.
