Can You Tell Which Backless Loafers Are Gucci, And Which Are The Cheap Look-Alikes For $50?

Those backless Gucci Princeton loafers–you know, the ones that look like fancy slippers and sometimes come with a fur lining– are everywhere. And I simply must have a pair. But oh crap–they’re $600. WTF?! I desperately want to dress like a style blogger or celeb… but, not for that price. What’s a girl to do? The answer is grab one of these IDENTICAL cheap Gucci look-alikes that we found.

Okay, so let’s start with the originals though. They are a thing of beauty, and celebs from Sienna Miller to Vanessa Hudgens, Gigi Hadid, Jennifer Aniston and more have rocked them. They come in a slew of colors and fabrics–our favorites are the classic black leather, red and fur-lined.

Bloggers are obsessed, too. This was basically the must-have shoe of the last six months:

But alas, they are out of any reasonable person’s budget and I need that $600 for other things (like rent) and so I just need a cheaper alternative to hold me over in the meantime. So I did some extensive digging. Behold–the best backless loafers that look JUST like the Gucci Princetown loafers–except not:

ASOS Movie Leather Mule Loafers ($56)

Botkier Clare Loafer Mule ($127.95)

And now for the originals. *sigh*
