Huh: we’ve posted in the past about the hugely popular Zala pump from Marc Fisher LTD — and I think it’s made three of the four “most-bought” roundups, so it’s clearly a reader favorite as well. At full price the shoe is $160 (with select colors and sizes on sale right now for as low as $63!) — but if that’s a bit much for your budget (or you’d just like to try a new color you’re not sure you’ll get a ton of wear out of), a great dupe to know about is the Caitlin Pump, pictured above — at DSW, by Marc Fisher, for a mere $60 full price (with some colors on sale). I haven’t seen the DSW version in person, but I would expect to see differences in materials (outer, inner, soles), as well as details like stitching — but because it’s made by the same company I’d think there’s a strong possibility the shoe might use the same last as the fancier versions, so the fit would be the same. (For example, Nordstrom notes that the Zala shoe has a leather lining and sole, whereas DSW reports that the Caitlin has a faux leather lining and synthetic sole.) Still: worth a try if you’re on a budget, filling holes in your wardrobe, or building it up from scratch. Pictured: Caitlin Pump
