Fashion fans have been lusting after the designer heels of Mach & Mach for the past two years since the launch of the brand’s signature bow-embellished heels. But the price tag has made them out of reach for many – with the stunning heels starting from around £930 up to £1,050.
But the very distinctive design has now been inspiring some more affordable high street versions. And Zara may have just about trumped them all with its new drop of colorful mules that look very similar to the designer version at a fraction of the price.
Zara stores on the high street and also online have just started selling their bright blue and bright pink satin mules, with embellished silver bow on the front for £59.99. But they’re already flying out fast, with only size 5s and 4s available at Manchester’s flagship Zara when we checked this week.

The heeled slingback with embellished bow is priced at £59.99 – a massive saving on the designer version. The shoes are available in the blue and pink colors from size 2 to size 9.
Zara fans have been sharing images of the heels with shoppers saying just how much they want a pair. The zara.addicted Instagram account shared images of the heels racking up 3,641 likes, with follower Malin Maria saying: “I need these shoes in my life,” while fashion blogger Kady Nallbani added: “Soooo pretty.”
The Mach & Mach designer heels continue to be in high demand – even with that hefty designer price tag. For those fashionistas in Manchester who have a bit more money to spend, they are available to buy in both Selfridges and Harvey Nichols and online.
At Selfridges Exchange Square, there’s a full range of the Mach & Mach designer heels on display, including the more expensive stilettos with embellished wraparound straps that celebrities and influencers have been going crazy for.
The fairytale heels were created by designer sisters Nina and Gvantsa Macharashvili, and gained international attention after they debuted at Paris Fashion Week in 2020.
The embellished bows, strappy ankle chains and pointed toes have made them in high demand for fashionistas and celebrities, with the likes of Kendall and Kylie Jenner wearing them out for events.
Shoe retailer Public Desire have also stocked a take on the Mach & Mach heels. The midnight black wrap around diamond bow high heel comes in at £34.99 and is available in sizes 3 to 9, with a white version on sale too. Perfect for styling with a party dress, the stiletto heel has a diamond wrap around ankle strap and Mach & Mach-esque diamond bow on the upper.
And while not an exact copy, fashion lovers can bag this pair of Ego diamond bow detail square peep toes in black for even less, costing £24.99. Either way, it’s a lot less than the £1,000 for the Mach & Machs, even though they are gorgeous.
