The Best Brand on Amazon for Cheap, Chic Shoes

Welcome to Prime Suspects, in which we call out surprisingly chic discoveries on Amazon.

I was idly scrolling through Amazon when I came across a pair of knotted black sandals that stunned me for two reasons: They looked like the Row, and they were only $60. A deep dive into Kensie, the brand that made them, revealed more extremely affordable shoes in styles similar to Céline, Givenchy, Alaia — all my favorite labels. Further research (okay, I bought a pair) has convinced me that while they won’t last as long as their fancy counterparts, they’re surprisingly well-made. The best part? If you absolutely need them now, you can use Prime to get them fast. Scroll ahead for our favorite styles.

Kensie Knot Sandals
$31 at Amazon

The knotted detail on these sandals make them look like they cost way more than $59.

Kensie Suede Mules
$59 at Amazon

You can’t go wrong with these suede Mansur Gavriel–like mules. The mushroom color is beautiful and the heel is walking-friendly.

Kensie Heeled Sandal
$40 at Amazon

These have a five-star review, with the top comment saying, “Saw these and fell in love.” Same.

Kensie Espadrille Sandals
$64 at Amazon

We couldn’t help but notice how similar these look to the Céline espadrilles, and for $64 you can justify faking it until you make it.

Kensie Dress Pumps
$29 at Amazon

Looking to graduate from flats into heels without everyone at work asking why you’re so fancy all of a sudden? These are for you.
