You’ve likely seen Naked Wolfe shoes worn by a slew of “it” celebs like Kourtney Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Bella Hadid and Rihanna. Known for its signature ’90s-inspired chunky boots and metal logo embedded into every pair, this footwear brand isn’t for the faint of heart.
Naked Wolfe boots, heels, sneakers and sandals are super thirsty for attention, thanks to their over-the-top platforms or luggy soles. Whether inspired by The Spice Girls or just a lack of cool options on the market, Naked Wolfe’s streetwear styles are geared toward people who want to wear their badassery on their feet.
The London-based company was founded in 2017 by a trio of 20-something siblings. The niche brand really took off during the pandemic as consumers were seeking to widen the scope of their fashion and turning to TikTok, according to The Guardian. The footwear house was also named in Forbes 30 Under 30 last year.
With its trendy, bold designs that simply ooze attitude, Naked Wolfe products also come with a luxe price tag to match. Retailers like Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus carry the brand for anywhere between $250 to $500 or more. That’s a lot for just one pair of shoes.
So as amazing as Naked Wolfe footwear is, these are some cheaper alternatives that get you a similar look for a more affordable price.
1. Steve Madden Cray Platform Boots
Perhaps the king of quality dupes, Steve Madden’s version of the Naked Wolfe iconic tall boot ($500) doesn’t have the same style heel but does feature the overall look.
This pair features a robust 2.25-inch platform and a lofty 5-inch block heel with a rounded toe made from faux stretchy leather.
2. Steve Madden Cobra Boot
With a similar style to Naked Wolfe’s Jane Booties ($350), the Cobra boot by Steve Madden will take you to all new heights.
It features a high block heel with an equally high profile stacked platform and side zipper closure on the instep. Cobra has a square toe with a smooth leather upper.
3. Circus NY Alyson Platform Sandal
Similar to Naked Wolfe’s Devil Sandal ($300), the new Circus NY Alyson sandal has a chunky platform style.
The Alyson has a super chunky vibe with a 3.25-inch heel and a 2-inch platform heel. It also has a jewel buckle and fisherman-esque influence.
4. Lemon Drop Platform Heels
These pink patent Lemon Drop platforms by Privileged are similar to the Naked Wolfe Angel heels ($300), but the Lemon Drop color is way prettier.
It features a 5.75-inch heel and a 2.75-inch platform with a strap that wraps around your ankle. And they’re almost $250 cheaper to boot.
5. Aldo Grandmode Over-the-Knee Boot
Although taller than Naked Wolfe’s Stella boot ($350), Aldo’s Grandmode boot has similar attributes, sans the leather upper.
The chunky over-the-knee boot features a 2.5-inch lug heel plus a 1.75-inch lug platform that all equals a cool biker chic aesthetic. And, it’s a lot less than Naked Wolfe’s.
