Real vs. Steal – Azzedine Alaïa Zip Detail Ankle Boots

by Irina on December 1, 2009

These zippered boots by Azzedine Alaïa are so fierce. I adore them! Zippers are very much on trend right now (as are buckles) and you can’t walk into a shoe store without seeing Balmain look-a-like boots pop out of everywhere. That’s why it’s so refreshing to see a zipper boot being NOT inspired by Balmain. I really like the idea of having the freedom to either zip it up when it’s cold or leave it open when it’s warm outside (or if you just had a pedicure and want to show off). However, the price of £1.135 (~$1.860) leaves a lot to be desired.

Thanks to Jeffrey Campbell you can get an almost identical look of the Azzedine Alaïa zipper boots for 1/10 of the price. Apart from the matte leather and the rounder heel I can’t really a difference between these two. Gotta love JC! 🙂
