If you’re on the market for one of the most timeless shoes that are comfortable enough to wear during the day and chic enough to pair with a dress at night, the Chanel two-toned Slingbacks are it. They may however, not be in your budget, as they sell for $875. To satisfy my itch to collect luxury shoes, I found a dupe for $53 that will have you double take! That’s like 90% something less expensive and they look pretty darn similar!
The Chanel Slingbacks were introduced by Coco Chanel herself back in 1957. They might be one of the most timeless classic shoes there is.
The beige color is intended to lengthen the leg while the black capped toe shortens your foot. It makes you look tall and fabulous. And our favorite slingback style? Well that was designed for the busy women (like ourselves) who needed freedom of movement.Madame Chanel
They were once deemed by the press as the “New Cinderella Slipper.” You may have seen many iterations of the black toe-the espadrille, ballerina shoe, and even a boot.
The slingbacks are elegant, comfortable, and so, so chic. They are practical and timelessly elegant. The block heel is low enough to jaunt around town and they go with literally, everything.
How do I get the look for less?
Once I found Marc Fisher’s dupe on sale for $53 (they’re currently $89), I got them immediately. With all the research I did, they are the closest match, minus the double CC on the side. I ordered an 8 and an 8.5, as I read the slingback would fall off some people’s heel. My normal size 8.5 worked perfectly, so I sent back the 8s. They do not slip off and they are truly comfortable.
I dreamt about wearing them with a distressed cropped pair of jeans, and the outfit I had imagined did not disappoint! These will be in heavy rotation with jeans and tees!
These will probably sell out quick, so don’t hesitate getting them!
