When everyone from Beyoncé to Ariana Grande, and even Addison Rae is wearing the same shoes, it's worth a second look. Versace's Medusa Aevitas platform sandals debuted as part of Versace's Fall 2021 collection and have taken the world by storm. They've graced the feet of some of Hollywood's most sought after celebrities, including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Candice Swanepoel, and more. 

We've seen platform heels become a major trend over the past year—check out these shoes worn by Selena Gomez —but none have taken the internet by storm quite like Versace's. At an intimidating six inches, the towering height of the heels is made more wearable by a 3-inch platform, making the actual incline a much more manageable three inches. The pair also features a crystal-adorned strap with a Medusa head charm, a square toe, and most recognizably a double platform. 

The most popular colorway of these heels is undoubtedly the hot pink shade worn by Beyonce, Bebe, and Addison Rae, but they come in a variety of colors — Ariana Grande opted for a near-neon yellow hue. Other colors include lilac, baby pink, light blue, nude pink, red, and black. 

The original mega-platforms from Versace are made in Italy with a 6-inch heel and 2.5-inch platform. A Medusa-head charm and crystals embellish the ankle strap of these towering pumps. 


If you don't have $1,575 to spend on Bey and Ari's exact shoes: we're right there with you. TikTok was able to hunt down a dupe from Steve Madden with the same double platform and satiny fabric at a much more reasonable price. Since going viral, even more, affordable alternatives have cropped up from the likes of Lulu's, Amazon, ASOS, and more, each with a unique twist on the original Versaces. Some heels have dropped the crystal ankle strap for a more streamlined look, while others have added even more sparkles or featured an open-toed design. Whatever your preference is, you're sure to find a great dupe for the sky-high Versaces without the sky-high price tag.

An affordable alternative to the Versace pumps worn by Beyoncé, these 5-inch heels are surprisingly comfortable thanks to a two-inch double platform.


Available in a rainbow of colors including this icy lilac, these Amazon heels are near-perfect match for the original Versaces.


With the same 6-inch platform, ASOS's version of the viral shoe offers the same height as Versace at under $70.


If you loved the crystal strap detail on the original Versace heel, then opt for these similarly adorned Shein platforms — available in this baby blue satin or black faux patent leather.


For a more summery vibe, try these open-toed kicks from Lulu's, available in hot pink, baby pink, green, and black.


Not a pink person? Opt for this emerald green pair from Boohoo instead, now on sale for 60% off.


For an even more over-the-top look, check out this pair from Amazon with a bedazzled sole.
