The dream: a shoe closet stocked with Louboutin, Noten, and Blahnik. The reality: ...not quite that. While you can maybe swing dropping serious cash on one of these designer silhouettes this season, you still need a sprinkling of more practical finds to round out your fall collection.
Luckily, that's not hard to accomplish with the affordable shoes on the market right now that look like they cost half a paycheck but actually ring in under $50. Ahead, we've picked five different occasions and found six shoes perfect for each. Sunday sneakers? Check. Going-out steppers? A click away. Lock-it-down work heels? Oh, yes. Now, when your colleague in Prada pumps asks you where you got your kicks, just respond with a grin.
