In case you haven't heard, Jennifer Lopez is doing great right now. The singer, actress, and entrepreneur bounced back from her split with Alex Rodriguez in record time, and all the while, she's continued to push the limits of fashion. Her latest shoe choice combines the barely-there look of a G-string thong with the functionality of a sandal. Though it's a bit stress-inducing to look at (how are her feet not getting dirty?) we have to admit that she pulled it off.

Over the weekend, Lopez donned a plunging white sundress on a shopping trip with her sister in the Hamptons. She accessorized with aviators, hoop earrings, and the shoes in question, which are from René Caovilla and retail for $1,050. Luckily, you don't need to shell out that kind of money to get the look. We rounded up eight great dupes for the sandals, and prices start at just $10. Fair warning, though: One look at them will make you want to book a pedicure ASAP.

In classic Lopez fashion, the original pair is covered in tiny crystals. If you're in search of a similarly opulent choice, consider the Mayou Rhinestone Flat Sandals, which feature a near-identical silhouette embellished with silver stones. You can grab them for $40, and according to reviewers, they're worth every penny. "This sandal is even more beautiful in person," one wrote. "The jewels are gorgeous!"

Prefer a more muted approach to the trend? Check out these crisp white T-strap sandals, which are completely plain, save for a subtle grommet accent. They've earned more than 2,000 five-star ratings from satisfied shoppers. Meanwhile, the metallic gold Valerie sandals from Jill Biden-loved brand Larroudé offer the perfect touch of sparkle for anyone looking for a middle ground.
