I've been promising a shoe dupes post for a few weeks now and all of my shoe dupes have finally arrived at my house! All of my shoe dupes are from Ego Shoes (Ego.co.uk) and Public Desire (publicdesire.com).
Puma Creepers are a shoe that was popular in the '90s, and recently gained popularity again thanks to Puma's collaboration with Rihanna. The Creeper sold on Puma.com and Puma stores sold out within minutes despite their $140.00 price tag. I'm not a big tennis shoe wearer, and knew the only way I would wear a pair of Creepers was if I found affordable shoe dupes. Thanks to Ego.co.uk, I was able to score a pair of Creepers for only $12.99 with free shipping! Ego Shoes has a variety of Creepers in various colors. While the only difference is that the shoes don't have Pumas signature stripe, you can hardly tell the difference between the real and dupe shoes. I order a pair of beige, suede Creepers from Ego Shoes because they were most similar to the original and were a neutral color, allowing me to get more wears with the shoes. Follow Ego Shoes on Instagram at @egoofficial to see more of their shoes!
My grey trainers are dupes of Nike Roshe Run tennis shoes. While the original shoe isn't quite that expensive (I've seen the shoe as low as $75) I still refuse to pay that much for a tennis shoe which won't get much wear in my wardrobe. I paid $12.00 for these trainers, and they are quite comfortable! Originally, I only purchased them for the sporty chic look that has been trending, but see myself trying to mimic popular Yeezy/Kardashian looks in the fall/winter with these trainers! The shoes are from Ego.co.uk and are unfortunately all sold out now. Keep your eye out for Yeezy Boost dupes on Ego Shoes website, the shoes were available for 2 pair for $50.00, but I missed out on the deal.
Another Puma and Rihanna collab shoe, the Fenty Slides were a shoe that I still have yet to get my hands on. Originally, I was planning on DIYing the shoe with a faux fur boa and a beach slide shoe, but once I came across a dupe of the shoe on sale on Publicdesire.com, I decided I needed to make the purchase! You can purchase dupes of the Fenty Slides for only $28.99 on Publicdesire.com in black, white, pink and baby blue. Rihanna is always seen sporting the pink pair, which is why I decided on the pink pair. I had the opportunity to compare the dupe to the real shoe, and they are identical from the sole of the shoe to the way the fur covers the shoe and the way the sandal is formed. The only difference is the lack of the Puma logo on the top of the shoe. These slider dupes are so comfy they feel like slippers. I've been told by a few that they resemble slippers too, but we'll just assume they aren't up to date on all of the shoe trends.
I know some people are all about the logo and the brand, but I feel it's silly to be so into a logo that you aren't willing to branch out from the crowd and wear what you actually like. Tomorrow I'll show you were you can find Yeezy shoe dupes for the low-low!
