When it comes to designer dupes, women’s footwear gets the most attention. We all love a good pump that will cost you over a grand, but the reality is, a multitude of companies create replicas, making us much more inclined to purchase the more reasonably priced version.

Right now, everyone’s losing it over the Christian Louboutin Unbout Illusion Pump. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Alicia Keys and Emma Stone have been spotted wearing this classic yet fun transparent cap toe making this shoe the most coveted item in every girl’s closet this spring.

Splurge

Christian Louboutin Unbout Illusion Pump, $795.

Save

Almost identical, and drastically cheaper, BCBGeneration’s Transparent Pumps cost a mere $89 and get the job done just as well.

Which pair will you be buying?
