These shoes by Sam Edelman remind me of a certain Valentino shoe. (Girls you know which ones I’m talking about). Since it’s release in 2010, the leather Valentino Rockstud Pumps have certainly become eye candy in the fashion blogosphere. Starting at around $945 a pair, they are not the most budget friendly shoe for most women. But, if you’re a trendy girl who loves a deal on designer inspired pieces, I’ve got the shoe for you! And at $139.95 a pair, these are hard to pass up! I found these shoes on display at work and truth be told, I nearly died when I saw them. And so, without further ado, I introduce to you the Sam Edelman Ollie T-Strap Pump.
The Sam Edelman’s offer a similar pointed toe silhouette with a three strap buckle closure and a comfortable low heel. There are some minor differences though, but in the end the same look is achieved. The classic Valentino Rockstuds are finished with a high-gloss patent leather, studded with pointed squares and are available in a variety of colors and finishes as well. The Edelman’s are limited to a matte leather in black or ivory/nude and are finished with rounded studs. Differences aside, the Edelman’s are still the best designer inspired shoe I have found. They have become a perfect investment in my own collection and have helped me create a variety of classic and edgy looks dressed up and dressed down.
Sold yet? I think they’re an A+!
