Save vs Splurge - Studded Pumps

Friday, January 22, 2016

I don't know exactly when the studded pumps/sandals/flats trended started, but I'm sure glad it did! I had a pair of studded flats years ago and they were my very favorite pair of shoes (that weren't sneakers). I would love to find another pair of shoes like those, but I'll settle for a pair of classy yet edgy pumps instead. When it comes to studded pumps you can either go big or go small, but just as amazing. The "big" version is from Valentino and it's called the Rockstud pointy toe pump. These shoes are gorgeous, but they do carry a pretty hefty price tag! The "small" version (for this comparison) is from Sole Society and their version is called the Tiia. Keep reading to see how they stack up and who I declared the winner!

The specs:
3 1/2" heel                                                                            2 1/2" heel
Faux leather, faux patent                                                         Leather upper, lining and sole
Adjustable strap with buckle closure                                          Adjustable strap with buckle closure

The verdict: Both shoes are great and the only real difference is price! They both come in a slew of colors including nude (my personal favorite) and red and both would be a great addition to your closet. The Sole Society version is a lot easier on the wallet if you plan on rocking this trend for a couple more seasons. If you're looking for a more long-term, high-quality shoe then the Valentino Rockstud is for you. Either pair would look amazing with a white tee and distressed jeans for a casual look or pair it with a simple dress for an amped up going out look. How would you style your studded pumps?
