Carly Kazempoor

April 21, 2022

Stepping into a pair of luxury designer heels is a dreamy act, we can’t deny it. Who doesn’t love to feel like an A-lister with iconic brand names and a beautiful accessory to tie your outfit together? All this being said, there’s a big misconception about luxury high heels — that they need to break the bank. 

There are plenty of decadent, designer heels under $300 just waiting to join your collection, and you can have your Prada and wear it too. Maybe you’d like to get the designer treatment while still paying a few bills this month, or simply lower your luxury designer heels budget so you can also get the matching Gucci belt. We don’t blame you, truly. Regardless of your reasoning, VICE VERSA is here to help you indulge in the best designer heels under $300.

Here are the best recommendations for luxury designer heels from VICE VERSA!

ET-DEMI-M in Gold Gold by Jeffrey Campbell - $185

Is your taste more rock concert than red carpet? Then you simply need to try a pair of shoes by Jeffrey Campbell. He makes the best designer heels under $300 that stand out in any setting — featuring vivid colors, dreamy designs, carefully-wrapped coils, and more. Exhibit A? Gold Gold, a set of strappy “hidden heels” that blur the lines between edge and elegance. Certain parts of these luxury designer heels stick to the classics, like the pointed toe and 3-inch height. However, once you look closer… you’ll see that it’s no ordinary shoe.

The glimmering gold can be seen from yards away, making it easy for your friends to spot you in the crowd at nightclubs or concerts, while the hidden heel is nothing short of magic. How did Jeffrey Campbell make a  set of mega-high designer heels with comfort, class, and the sexiest coils ever, all for such a great price? Because he’s one of the edgiest and most underrated designers in the world, and you’ll be in awe of his endless sets of designer heels under $300. We’re especially fond of the Gold Gold color, but you can also buy the same style in Black Crinkle Patent Gold, Silver Silver, or White Patent Silver. 

Moire Satin Bow Heeled Sandals in Dusty Pink by Ted Baker - $225

The first things that come to mind when we see these designer heels under $300 by Ted Baker? Brunches with mimosas, bridal showers, best friend reunions… and basically any other occasion that lets the girls get together. This soft pink shoe is girly and glamorous, quite literally tying your outfits together with a slim heel and satin bow. Both features are a Ted Baker specialty, and it totally makes sense why he’s one of the most famous designers in Britain.

Every inch of these designer heels appears divine and delicate, at least on the outside. But don’t be fooled into thinking that they won’t support your soles. The 3.5-inch heel is just enough to increase your confidence levels, without causing you a ton of pain after wearing them all day. The ankle strap and slim heel are also ideal for mobility, while also making you a vision of style and sophistication for any occasion. We’re especially fond of the Moire Batin Bow Heeled Sandals for girl’s getaways, as we mentioned earlier, but you can also wear them for work meetings, lunch dates, nights out and everything in between. 

If you’re a fan of the Scrunchie Mule foldable heels by VICE VERSA, you’ll love these Ted Baker designer heels under $300. Both sets deliver fierce and feminine energy, while making you feel cute and comfortable at all times!

Marina Gemstone Stilletto in Red by Badgley Mischka - $169

If you’ve been following VICE VERSA for a while, you know that we can’t resist a set of red heels. Our Everyday Heel in Scarlet Red is the ultimate symbol of style and sexiness, and you’ll get the same things (minus the foldable heel) with these ruby designer heels under $300 by Badgley Mischka. As the kids like to say, they “look expensive,” decked out in rhinestones along the straps for a striking and sparkling display. But the best part is, they’re one of the most affordable pairs of luxury high heels you’ll ever find. 

Romance is implied with this set of Badgley Mischka heels, with the ruby hue matching the color of roses and the gemstones reminding you of the ones in your date night jewelry. You’ll be decked out in gemstones from head to toe, literally, on your next date night… especially if you find a necklace that matches your new designer shoes. If you fall in love with these luxury high heels in the color red, you can also collect black, silver, and white hues to give your closet a ravishing upgrade.  

Meisho Nappa Leather Pump by Schutz - $148

Endless sophistication awaits with this set of luxury designer heels by Schutz, pulling together practically any fit with the ideal blend of simplicity and style. Adorned in Nappa leather, these pumps feature a stiletto heel, pointed toe, and comfortable inside lining — all the things that a fan of traditional heels will love. They’re also a gorgeous ivory white color that pairs effortlessly with white dresses… do you see where we’re going with this? We’re not exactly saying that brides-to-be should consider these Schutz luxury high heels for their wedding shoes, but we’re not not saying it either. 


Meisho Nappa Leather Pumps are balanced out by the gorgeous accent that sits in the center of the shoe, proving that even the simplest of pumps are enhanced by a little sparkle. Wear these ivory white designer heels to your wedding (only as a bride, never a guest!,) date night, work event, or anything in between and save big on this beautifully traditional pair of Schutz pumps. 


Alicia City Sandal by Cole Haan - $150

You can’t go wrong with a strappy pair of sandals, and these Cole Haan designer heels under $300 show just enough skin while providing ample support. Featuring strappy leather uppers, an adjustable ankle strap with buckle, and a block heel for major mobility, you can step into Alicia City Sandals for work or play. This type of heel is often recommended for outdoor events, such as picnics at the park or beach weddings, as the block heel is less likely to get stuck in the grass or sand, respectively, than a slimmer heel would. 

Not only could these luxury designer heels be featured on our list of the best comfortable heels for weddings, alongside VICE VERSA favorites like Shimmer Heel and Disco Slingback, but they’re also suitable for practically any other setting. Wear them to a work lunch to show off your pedicure and receive endless compliments on these suede shoes, and then to the bar at night for a comfortable fit that flatters your little black dress. You deserve to dance the night away in designer heels without your feet hurting, a basis behind the VICE VERSA brand. And these sandals by Cole Haan let you have your luxury high heels and wear them too. 


Stargazing Heels by Jeffrey Campbell - $190

Jeffrey Campbell is an artist in every sense of the word, designing the best luxury high heels that take an alternative turn. His shoes cater more to the likes of fashion innovators like Lady Gaga and Lizzo as opposed to the classic stilettos of old Hollywood, featuring all the platform boots and sky-high wedges you could want. Of course, he’s still more than capable of making a pretty set of pumps… and it’s evident with the Stargazing shoes. This set puts a Jeffrey Campbell twist on your classic pumps, featuring a traditional pink, black, or red body with star and stud embellishments from heel to toe. 

Beautiful looks are written in the stars with these designer shoes, which provide custom vibes with each color. The Black Patent Gold is a gorgeously galactic addition to your closet, living up to the “Stargazing” name with a design that’s as magnificent as the night sky. The Red Patient Gold makes you feel like Dorothy in Oz, reminiscent of the ruby slippers that have rightfully earned their place in cinema history. And then there's the Pink Patent Gold, which gives off Barbie vibes and puts a new spin on the modern “rose gold” shade. Whichever hue you choose, we know you’ll be looking like a star with these designer heels under $300.

Sketchy Magnolia Bow Heeled Sandal by Ted Baker - $225

We know what you may be thinking. “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” But all Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada jokes aside… you simply need this set of floral and fabulous designer heels from Ted Baker. They add vibrance to the collection of red, black, or brown shoes in your closet, and put a spring in your step year-round.

Like many of Ted Baker’s masterpieces, the Sketchy Magnolia sandal features an ankle strap and satin bow for a demure design. This was definitely intentional, as the product description confirms. “With a dainty structure and subtle florals printed all over, this pair is perfect for weddings, summer parties, and nights out,” the website reads. “Team with a simple dress to let these really shine.”

The spring outfits and sexy sundresses in your closet are simply begging to be paired with these floral sandals, which heat up your outfit just in time for the warmer months. They’re the perfect blend of sweet and sultry, and not to mention under $300!

Shimmer Heel by VICE VERSA - $225

You didn’t think that we’d forget about these VICE VERSA favorites, did you? Our Shimmer Heels are under $300, yet contain the most priceless features. Think comfort, versatility, and originality. You’re unlikely to see shoes like this in any other setting, from the illuminating lavender hue to the floating broach, while the foldable heel is a lifesaver that never sacrifices luxury. 

Unlike any other heel on this list, you can go from sky-high heels to flawless flats with the touch of a button. There’s no need to pack new shoes to replace the heels you wore at your work presentation, because Shimmer Heel transforms into versatile flats for any outfit. You can walk into your dinner reservation in heels for when your friends take the group photo, but press the button as soon as you get that perfect shot. Shall we go on? Our VICE VERSA technology is made to provide a comfortable and charismatic heel for a great price, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with our $225 Shimmer Heels.
