Real vs. Steal – Chloé Leather Lace-Up Wedge Boots

by Celine on June 28, 2010

I have loved Chloé‘s Leather Lace-Up Wedge Boots since the moment I laid eyes on them. Leighton Meester wore them on an episode of Gossip Girl and I immediately scrambled to find out who they were by. Sort of ironic, really, because I actually think they’re almost bordering on ugly. They kind of look like bowling shoes on steroids; and yet I longed for them. There’s just something so chic about them, don’t you think? I recall Forever 21 came out with a knockoff, but they were gone in a hot second and sadly the originals are $695 out of my budget. What’s a girl to do?

Coconuts by Matisse “Davis” Booties

Despite these “Davis” booties by Coconuts by Matisse being largely fabric, I think they’re a truly excellent knockoff of the Chloé boots. I mean, despite fabric and color they are practically identical. These are also available in black, but I think the dual-color is where it’s at. Wear with a mini skirt and look ever so fashion forward. And for only $83.95.

ASOS TASCA Suede Lace-Up Wedge Boots

OK, these “TASCA” lace-up wedge boots by ASOS may not be a perfect replica color-wise, but shape-wise they nailed it. We love the folded over flaps and texture on texture feel. Too bad they didn’t throw a little khaki in there, right? I see these looking great over skinny jeans or even with shorts and patterned tights. There’s something very rugged but also feminine about these wedges and that’s what I love. I’d probably go with the black color over the tan (yep, they’re available in black, too), but it’s your call.

  • I’m so so sorry, but I just can’t get into the high-heel bowling shoes look! Will these catch on you think?
    P.S. don’t miss the latest giveaway on my site!

  • I have lusted after these boots since thay came out last year as well. Topshop did a fairly nice version that sold out after a few weeks. I never got a chance to get my hands on them. Maybe I’ll check out the fabric ones. Thanks for the recommendations.
