If you're into high fashion but don't have enough cash for the flash, you're in luck. From flats and sneakers to boots and stilettos (not to mention sandals), you can head out in style with amazingly convincing look-alikes of the latest trends in footwear — all for less than $100.

If you're not sure whether the massive platform near-vertical pumps perfected by Christian Louboutin are still in vogue, check out the price tags that are as steep as the heels. The Bianca from Louboutin defines the look, which is neutral but noticeable.
Price: $39.98 | Buy them at DSW
Thanks to Chinese Laundry, you can get the platform and the stiletto heel of the vaunted Bianca with a few differences. You'll have to forgo the signature Louboutin red sole, but you can plunk down two $20 bills and leave the store in style.

When Alexander Wang mesh high heel boots hit the runway this year, they became one of 2018's biggest must-haves. The four-inch leather heel is a surprising counterpoint to the stretch mesh of the upper. Consider yourself lucky to score them for inside $700 — that's a markdown from the original $995.
Price: $27.92 | Buy them at Forever21
No one who's looking closely would mistake these for a pair of Alexander Wang originals, but you will get the mesh upper look for less than $30. The upper is more sheer than fishnet, and synthetic material largely replaces high-end leather, but the price is right.
Price: $1,350 | Buy them at Chanel
When Chanel unveiled its PVC thigh-high transparent knee boot on the runway in 2018, Vogue raved it was the "it" boot of the spring/summer 2018 season. Designed by Karl Lagerfeld, the see-through boots were so chic that they were displayed by the year's breakout catwalk star, Kaia Gerber.

A souped-up version of hiking shoes called trekking boots were originally designed to be durable, light, and comfortable for serious hikers. When Gucci released its Flashtrek model, however, trekking boots became a fashion statement for the refined but rugged man.
Price: $79.95 | Buy them at Kohl’s
Even if you're not well-heeled enough to pony up for the designer version, you can get the look for less than $70 with a trip to Kohl's. These hiking boots from Columbia let you rock the Gucci-inspired style, but they're also functional, thanks to features like a padded footbed and a Techlight midsole.
Price: $1,090 | Buy them at Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton put the Archlight style on the map when it unveiled a new, futuristic sneaker with an oversized tongue and its now-trademark wave arch. The company touted the sneaker's irresistible "delicate, feminine touch."
Price: $51.26 | Buy them at DHGate
For less than $60, you can rock sneakers with a swooping arch, and this style is available in both men's and women's sizes in seven different styles and colors. You'll get the same bold style that made the Vuitton version one of the hottest items of the season.
Price: $950 | Buy them at Chanel
Thanks to Chanel, the slingback is one of the hottest shoes currently found on feet across the world. The luxury brand uses crumpled lambskin and calfskin to craft its masterpiece — but you'd better be prepared to pay crumpled lambskin prices.
Price: $19.99 | Buy them at AMIClubwear
Kim-and-Kanye-induced fever aside, you can score a pair of peep-toe boots for about about 125 times less than the Givenchy asking price. The smooth finish on these boots ensures comfort and the stitch detailing gives a luxurious trim.

Chloe set the gold standard of gold-on-black Parisian ankle boots with its three-strapped Susanna model. It's embellished with elegant gold studs, an embossed insole, and a full leather lining — but the price tag is higher than the cost of a coach flight to France.
Price: $59.99 | Buy them at DSW
If you love the Chloe look but not the $660 price tag, score a lookalike of the hottest espadrilles in town. Steve Madden makes a similar model that retails for less than $60. Like the Chloe version, it's got an open toe, an adjustable ankle strap, and it's cut from quality suede.
Price: $190 | Buy them at Timberland.com
Timberland designed its classic six-inch waterproof work boot 40 years ago, and it still epitomizes timeless blue-collar style. They're made well, insulated against the elements, and at nearly two pounds per boot, they're built to last — but they've never been cheap.
Price: $37.99 | Buy them at KMart
These Texas Steer nubuck work boots may not sport the technology of Timberland work boots, but at least they look the part. These soft-toed safety boots have a rubber outsole and superior resistance to oil. They're built for comfort and style at a quarter of the price of Timberlands.
Price: $37.99 | Buy them at Target
The low-cut boot with a diagonal zipper is on-trend, and the look can be bought for less than $40. These block-heeled booties could easily pass for the suede or polished Italian leather that the world associates with Frye, but are constructed with man made materials.
Price: $135 | Buy them at drmartens.com
Generations of girls and women have been unleashing their inner rocker chicks by wrapping their feet in wild, rebellious, and undeniably punk Docs — and the classic boot is a true original. With that reputation and history, however, comes a decidedly unpunk three-digit price tag.
Price: $34.03 | Buy them at Amazon
Rated 4.5 out of five stars from more than 3,300 Amazon reviews, these Bearpaw Ugg look alikes are convincing not just in looks, but in features and materials. They're also made from sheepskin, as well as cow suede, and like the original they stand nearly one foot tall.
Price: $24.99 | Buy them at SteveMadden.com
For about a quarter of what a pair of duck boots will run you, you can get the look (if not the quality) of a classic duck boot with a pair of Torrent boots by Steve Madden. Rubberized to repel the worst of winter, these lookalikes are lined with fleece for insulation.
