The Valentino “Rockstud” heels have amassed a cult following with the fash-pack over the past few years, and their must-have status shows no signs of waining. With a price-tag of €800+ though, it’s hard for me to justify forking out for a pair. I know everyone’s budget is different, and more power to you if you can afford the real-deal, but after the great reaction to my Chloe bag dupes post, I thought I would put together another online bargains feature, based around the beloved Valentino Rockstud style.
I picked up a look-a-like pair of the black Rockstud flats last year for under €50, and I was so happy with them. Whenever anyone complimented them, I always said they were dupes, as I’d never feel right misleading people. So if you’re looking to try out this footwear trend without investing, then read on, as I have found some identical styles online for a fraction of the price.
I did some rooting around on some of my favourite Asian websites, and I have put together a little edit of all the rockstud dupe-styles available right now. I am very tempted to pick up another pair of flats in a lighter colour, and I especially love all the pastel colours, they’re so pretty! Just in case you’re wondering, these styles are perfectly legal as they are not “fakes”, because they don’t claim to be real Valentino designs, they are just heavily inspired by them, like a lot of highstreet brands do. I have also bought bits and bobs from all of the websites featured before, I can attest to them being perfectly safe!
You can view and shop my favourites below, just hover over the style to see the price, and click through to be taken directly to the store. If you are ordering, I would suggest going one size up (especially in the flats) as these are Asian websites, so the sizes tend to run a bit small.
And finally, I’d really love to know if you find this type of post interesting, or do you feel it to be in poor taste? I always used to get a great reaction from my readers when I did an eBay bargains post, and I feel like this could be a fun way of helping people to get the designer look for less. Let me know what you think in the comments below, your feedback is much appreciated. If the response is good, then I will happily put together more of these posts for you all.
