After months of lusting after the Balenciaga cut out boots sported by non other then fashion blogger extraordinaire Leandra from the man repeller. I knew I had to have them but with such a hefty price tag it was Unrealistic.
Jeffrey Campbell offered an alternative in the form of the Coltrane Boots. These boots were $185 from America and then customs on top off it they were still way too expensive. I always feel like Ankle boots just don’t suit me and I couldn’t justify the purchase of such an expensive pair of shoes that I had a high probabilty of wearing very rarely.
I had completely forgotten about the cut out boots. Until, I was casually browsing the River Island website and came across River Islands offering, unfortunately they were sold out of my size on the site. So I went into my local River Island and picked up a pair.
I wore the boots last weekend, for the full weekend shopping in Dublin and to my surprise they are so comfortable and extremely versatile shoe. I love the gold hardware detail of them especially.
Overall, if you want an alternative but still a high quality pair of cut out boots look no further then River Island. Would love to hear your thoughts on Cut out Boots.
