Spot the difference: Valentino's £670 studded heels vs Office's £40 dupe

We needs these heels in our life pronto…

Sophie Hamilton

Ready for a serious shoe bargain ladies? We've all seen Valentino's iconic Rockstud noir ankle strap pumps which retail for £670. The shoes are beyond divine, it's true. They feature Ruthenium-finish studs, nappa leather piping and are made in Italy, of course. But since these heels are a far off dream for many of us, alternatives are more than welcome – and we have a brilliant dupe for you. Office has created a Valentino pump lookalike which nearly fooled us on first glance. They're studded just like the Valentino pair and have that sassy T-bar. The price? Currently only £40 in the sale, reduced from £72. Now that's shopping.

The Valentino heels

The Office black leather court heels also have an open back, closed pointed toe, stiletto heel and gorgeous studded detail on the straps. The studs are the tell-tale sign however, as Valentino's Rockstud pair have a square stud which forms a point, while the Office lookalike has round studs. Not a bad imitation though! They also come in red and white colours.

The Office heels

Height-wise, there's not much in it between the two shoes. The Valentino pair are 10cm and the Office heels are 10.5 cm, so if you want that extra lift, the Office shoes are perfect. Clearly, we'd wear either pair any day.

One review on the Office website confirms it, saying: "Great shoes. Heels I can wear all night without rubbing. And look great on."
