Splurge vs Steal: Aquazurra Wild Thing Dupe

Get the look of the Aquazurra Wild Thing fringe sandal for less with the Ivanka Trump Hettie and the Steve Madden Sassey.

You know me… I absolutely LOVE a good dupe or look for less! (And I know you guys do too! My Stuart Weitzman Boots Look for Less post is still one of my most popular!) If you’re on Pinterest or Instagram, no doubt the super cool, super sexy Aquazurra Wild Thing has caught your eye. The perfect little spring/summer shoe, it dresses up a pair of jeans, adds a little flirty fun to a little dress, and is just basically amazing. But, seriously, $785.

Luckily for us gals on a budget, there are TWO fabulous dupes out right now! The Ivanka Trump Hettie and the Steve Madden Sassey are two almost identical copies that WON’T leave you bankrupt. (I tend to prefer the Ivanka Trump Hettie, it feels a little more high end. I think the silhouette is a little bit thinner and thereby more luxe looking.) UPDATED: after looking at this post again, the Hettie is definitely far superior to the Sassey… the Steve Madden dupe has a closed back, whereas the Ivanka Trump is slingback like the Aquazurra pair. Just a head’s up, because for some reason I totally didn’t notice it at first!)

The shoes are available in black, blush, yellow, fuschia and red. JUST like the Aquazurra Wild Thing. (The Wild Thing is also available in cobalt, baby blue and orange!)

Shop the spread (you can click directly on it to be lead directly to the product page!) or you can shop the widget below. (There are more colors available of all, the widget for some reason favors black!)

  • Dude. You know I want the Aquazurras. I do. But how can you beat this dupe? I mean, this is perfect!!

    • Netty, WE NEED THEM. We just do. After looking at them more, the Ivanka is definitely better than the Steve… I didn’t realize at first that the Steves have a closed back. But the Ivanka is FLAWLESS. I mean… COME ON!!! SO excited lol!
