Real vs. Steal – Acne Studios Colt Zip Ankle Boots

by Irina on January 24, 2015

So I tell you what the deal with these Acne Studios “Colt” ankle boots is: they’re basically the “Pistol” boots but with a higher heel. And if you’ve read this blog for a while, you’ll know: the higher, the better. Personally, I absolutely loooove this updated version of the Acne Pistols, but seeing as I purchased the real Acne Pistol boots just last year and am still recovering from splurging on this purchase, there’s no way I could go for the real deal once again here. At least not now.

Selected Femme “Carol” Zip Ankle Boots

Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon these ankle boots by Selected Femme. They are an identical match to the Acne Colt boots, plus they’re on sale for almost 50% off! So before I wrote about them here on this blog, I made sure to order my own pair first just to make sure they wouldn’t sell out in the meantime (something that has happened in the past). And what can I say? I’m in love. They are just as gorgeous in real life, well made, very comfortable and I love the extra inch these boots give me.
