We don’t know about you, but we’ve been lusting over the Valentino Rockstud Ballerina Flats for seasons now – who can blame us? For starters, they’re the perfect alternative if you’re after a statement shoe but can’t quite face sliding your feet into heels. Striking the perfect balance between feminine and edgy, they instantly amp up the plainest of outfits and can be worn to pretty much any occasion, from a fancy wedding right through to a summer BBQ.
So, it’s not surprising they quickly became a wardrobe staple for bloggers and the fashion set. In fact since they launched, Valentino’s sales have doubled thanks to these beauties. The only issue? If you’re anything like the rest of us, the £585 price tag makes it quite tough to justify forking out for a pair.
But not to worry, as we’ve scoured the shelves of some of our favourite high street retailers and tracked down some shoes that are a little more affordable if Valentino isn’t quite within your budget!
Dune’s Heti Stud Detail Pointed Flat Shoes, £70, are a very similar design and come embellished with studding just like Valentino’s renowned flats, but at a snippet of the cost.
