The Best Valentino Rockstud Shoe Styles

If you are a designer shoe lover you probably own a pair of Valentino rockstuds, if not more than one. If you haven’t purchased a pair of Rockstuds yet, I’m sure you’ve thought about doing so before.

​The Valentino Rockstud slingbacks were introduced in Fall 2010 and have been all the rage ever since. The Rockstud collection allowed iconic fashion house Valentino to appeal to a young and fresh demographic. Over the past few years Valentino has reported incredible growth in revenue with thanks to the success of the Rockstud.

While I love the Valentino rockstud shoes and think they are beautiful, I’ve been hesitant to purchase a pair. These have been historically my two main reasons:

1. They are really expensive. It takes A LOT for me to shell out $1,000 on a pair of shoes.

2. They are insanely popular I really try and avoid buying a pair of shoes that everyone already owns. (Especially when they are so expensive)

​Well I recently found a pair of Valentino Rockstuds that may have put my reasonings to rest. They are pure perfection. * Heart melts*


Can you please just take a moment for the new Valentino Rockstud Lace Up Sandals. This shoe is stunning.

​While I was admiring this shoe I realized Valentino makes so many different versions of the Rockstud shoe. Many of them I never knew existed and it was quite exciting to see all of the styles. There are over 50 plus variations of the Valentino Rockstuds. In addition to the one above, here are the Best Styles.

Barneys and Neimans have the most extensive collection of Valentino Rockstuds.

​Protect Your Pumps ladies absolutely love protecting their Rockstuds so I’ll share a few awesome photos from our customers who are Rockstud lovers.
