Lauren’s Luxurious Looks For Less: Louis Vuitton Merry-Go-Round Pumps

April 26, 2012 • Blahnik Tonic, Fashion Blog, Looks For Less, Trends

As I passed by the Louis Vuitton window display in midtown Manhattan yesterday, I literally stopped dead in my tracks when I caught a glimpse of these Louis Vuitton Merry-Go-Round pumps out of the corner of my eye. I think they are simply stunning. So as soon as I got back to the office I was looking for them. It turns out they are only available in Louis Vuitton stores for a mere $1,000. Have I become so desensitized that I no longer think $1K for a pair of shoes is asinine? I mean they are a classic stiletto style and I am sure I could get tons of mileage out of the metallic toe-cap. However, I love a challenge and took it upon myself to find the look for less and even in a more comfortable option of a flat. I am not going to say what I found was always dirt cheap because that’s not my goal. It’s just to find a similar look for less. All of these options come in at under $1,000. Here are my picks for the best pumps and flats with enviable toe-caps:

1. Giuseppe Zanotti Two-Toned Glossed-Leather Pumps, $595

2. Lanvin Two-Toned Nubuck Ballet Flats, $590

3. Zara Court Show with Metal Toe Cap, $89.90

4. Classiques Entier ‘Riley’ Pump, $139.95

5. Yves Saint Laurent Black Leather ‘Opyum 105’ Ponted Cap Toe Pumps, $532

6. Manolo Blahnik ‘Campari’ Cap Toe Pump, $735

7. Giambattista Valli Metallic Leather and Satin Pumps, $655

8. Jimmy Choo ‘Whirl’ Ballerina Flat, $375

9. Kate Spade Elina Flat, $225
