Save vs Splurge: Summer Shoe Edition

The last time I did a Save vs Splurge post, I received a good response from my readers. Hence, I decided to do it again this time focusing on one of my favorite trends of the moment: lace up shoes. I have been coveting them and love my lace up shoes in all forms: espadrilles, heels, flats and sandals. If you are in the market to add new lace up shoes to your closet, I'm going to show you two options according to your budget.

Splurge: Carina Suede Espadrille Wedge / Save: Faux Suede Wedge Sandals
Splurge: Minimal Lace Up Heel / Save: Lace-Up Peep-Toe Booties
Splurge: Saga Lace Up Sandal / Save: MIA Delphine Gladiator Sandals
Splurge: Shay Lace Up Flat / Save: Grey Suede Lace-Up Flats
Splurge: Hierro Heel / Save: Nude Lace-Up Heels
Splurge: Marina Lace Up Espadrille / Save: Sam Edelman Lilly Black Lace-Up Flats

Which would you go for: save or splurge?
