Save your pennies with these designer lookalikes.

Last Updated on May 19, 2023

Obsessed with Chanel’s dad sandals but can’t afford to shell out over £2,000? Join the club.

I’ve had my eyes firmly fixed on the designer’s beautiful dad sandals for as long than I can remember – but like many right now, I’m on a pretty tight budget.

If you’re desperate for a pair of dad sandals that look like Chanel’s, you’re in luck. As with most big trends, the high street has worked its magic to bring out a selection of sandals that look almost identical to the designer’s without the luxury price tag.

From black leather sandals from ASOS and Arket, to a multicoloured metallic pair from Kurt Geiger, there are plenty here to tickle your fancy.

So I did the hard work for you, and found the best of the bunch. My personal favourites? Alohas gorgeous quilted sandals that really do give Chanel’s a run for their money.

If you don’t know much about Alohas yet, let me introduce you. The sustainable brand offers a pre-order system, which means they don’t produce too many shoes that end up going to waste.

You can pre-order the shoes at a 15% discount, which is a win-win for both you and the planet.

There are plenty of high street brand’s creating dad sandals this season too that you might be more familiar with, like River Island, ASOS and Arket.

Keep scrolling to see my favourites – and if you like these, you might like these Prada loafers dupes, Gucci crystal slingbacks dupes and Marc Jacobs tote bag dupes.
