I've had several requests for these Stuart Weitzman Alex espadrilles, see on Jennifer Aniston (photo credit), which retail for $365 at Nordstrom.
These Jessica Simpson platforms caught my eye and immediately brought the Alex wedges to mind, although they do vary since they are a heel and not an espadrille (among other things). In any case, I thought they were a reasonable inspired by option and wanted to share with you guys! They retail for $114 and you can click on the photo below to purchase.
*Update - 4/26/10* - Thanks to reader brwneyes who commented below with these Rampage Flynn sandals which are another inspired by option. They retail for $45 (and free shipping!) and also come in black. If you're interested in purchasing, please click here.
*Update - 5/19/10* - These may be the best lookalike I've seen so far of the Alex espadrille by Stuart Weitzman (although they still have some differences). They retail for $99.95 and you can click here if you're interested in purchasing (also come in bronze or silver).
*Update - 12/31/10* - Go Jane just added a great lookalike to their site, retailing for an affordable $29. Now the question is which color? Taupe (shown), camel, or black? Click here to purchase.
*Update - 1/14/11* - Steve Madden also has a version of these sandals now - click on the photo below to purchase them for $69 (also available in black). Colin Stuart also has a pair (thanks to the reader who sent these in!) for $78. Click on the second photo below to purchase.
