I’ve been completely obsessed with the Valentino “Rockstud” collection but just can not bring myself to spend over $1000 for a pair of shoes. I’ve been searching around for a more affordable “closest thing” and stumbled upon a studded shoe collection at Zara. Nothing in the Zara collection compares to the Valentino ‘Rockstud Crystal Noir’ (#1), but overall I’m digging Zara over the other Valentinos. These Zara metallic sandals and studded ankle strap pumps are definitely going to make their way into my closet.
Valentino: 1. ‘Rockstud Crystal Noir’ t-strap pumps, $1295 at Nordstrom; 2. ‘Rockstud’ sandal, $945 at Nordstrom; 3. ‘Rockstud’ bow flat sandal, $745 at Nordstrom; 4. ‘Rockstud’ t-strap flat, $845 at Nordstrom
