The Look for Less - Valentino Rockstud Shoes

Very few footwear styles have reached cult status like the Valentino Rockstud collection. The Valentino Rockstud heels are longtime celebrity and blogger favorites, and with good reason. They come in many colors and styles, and with their gleaming studs and patent leather finish, they strike the right balance between edgy and feminine. Furthermore, they work just as well with casual denim (as shown in red on Blair of Atlantic-Pacific) and shorts (as seen on Olivia Palermo) as they do with chic, flirty skirts (as demonstrated by Emma Stone).

Something about the studded trim has an appeal that's widespread and timeless.
