We all love to online "window" shop for amazing shoes, but there is a downside to it: The pressure of knowing that, usually, we can't afford the shoes we fall in love with. Unfortunately for designers (but great for us), there are lower priced shoe brands that create nearly identical replicas every season. We rounded up the best summer shoes and their lower priced counterparts. Click through the gallery to see our picks.
