Real vs. Steal – Acne Pistol Short Ankle Boots

by Irina on July 16, 2012

Okay, I’ll admit it: it took me a while to warm up to the Acne Pistol boot. At first it seemed like yet another ordinary ankle boot. I didn’t get the hype until I ordered the Dolce Vita “Jax” booties which are an almost perfect look-a-like of the Pistol boots. These booties pretty much became my go-to choice for almost every outfit. Due to its popularity the Acne booties are now available in a bazillion versions, including this black version which has a tan heel and tassel which I prefer over the all-black version. But at $524 buying the Acnes aren’t currently a realistic option for me.

DV by Dolce Vita “Joust” Ankle Boots

I was so happy when I came across these DV by Dolce Vita ankle boots. Not only do they look almost exactly like their big sister, the Dolce Vita “Jax”amazon, they’re also real leather and cost a whole lot less than the “Jax” booties which cost $198 while these are only $69.99 (sale price!). Instant shoe love! I’m so putting these ankle boots on my wish list. Also available in grey brown.
