If you’re looking for the perfect pair of Gucci mule dupes for the Princetown slides, you’re in the right place. I found the best Gucci loafer dupes for under $50! These slides are classic and instantly elevate any casual outfit.
I bought my first pair of Gucci Princetown loafers in the spring of 2016. I’d been wanting a pair of Gucci mule loafers for months and when I saw the limited edition navy and white gingham print on Instagram, I decided to splurge after a big work milestone! (You can see them in this post about one of my go-to travel outfits.) They were ‘only’ $650 back then, but the price tag has slowly crept up over the last few years. They’ll currently run you $850-1050 + tax, depending on the pair.
I’ve really wanted a pair of leather mules ever since, but could never justify buying another pair that I can’t wear year-round in Chicago. Sure, I could go for the Jordan loafers with a back instead, but the Princetowns loafer mules have always had my heart.
Gucci Princetown Dupes
Last year, I came across a pair of slides with a horse bit on Amazon that looked incredibly similar to the real Gucci pair so I decided to grab a few pairs to compare. At just $50, you don’t have to choose just one!
In person, you can see that they are almost identical. The bit is a bit thicker on the Amazon pair, but you have to be looking at them side by side to tell. I’ve never been one for ‘dupes’ or fakes so I grappled with the idea of keeping them or even sharing this blog post. I ended up just keeping the white pair, as I would never have the guts to buy a white pair of $900 leather loafers.
I appreciate that they don’t actually say Gucci so they feel more like an “inspired by” style, versus a true counterfeit product.
Sizing for Gucci Mule Dupe on Amazon
I’m a true size 8.5, but for whatever reason, I wear a 40 in Gucci loafers. Maybe it’s because my foot is on the wider side? In this pair of Gucci dupes, I ordered a size 9 and they fit perfectly.
I will say, my authentic Gucci pair is much more comfortable! Never once have they given me a blister, or even come close to being uncomfortable. But if I’m walking a while in my pair of Gucci mule dupes, they do start to rub on the top part of my foot a bit.
Colors of the Gucci Loafer Dupe
Pictured here are the White, Apricot, and Black. Not pictured, but I also love the look of the Brown pair! Personally, I think the more neutral colors look the most authentic. You can shop all of the colors here!
If you love the Gucci fur mules just as much as I do, check out this pair of Gucci Princetown Fur Lined Leather Slipper Dupes!
Other Gucci Inspired Loafers
Here are a few styles by other well-known brands that look similar to the Gucci Princetown mule…
Sam Edelman Linnie | These are available in 18 different colors, fabrics, and patterns! They run true to size. If you’re not familiar with Sam Edelman, they’re great quality for the price.
Steve Madden Kandi | These are only available in two colorways, but they are half the price of the Sam Edelman pair linked above.
If you’re not into designer dupes, you can usually find authentic Gucci loafers on sale at one of the Gucci outlets. My favorite outlet is the one outside of Firenze! Alternatively, The Real Real is a great place to buy pre-loved Gucci mules.
