Real vs. Steal – Chloé Susan Studded Ankle Boots

by Irina on November 1, 2013

UPDATE: This post has been updated on November 1, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

If you are familiar with the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you will all remember the studded Chloé Susan (also sometimes called “Susanna” or “Suzanna”) ankle boots below as they’ve created quite a buzz among fashion bloggers in 2009. Even though they cost more than a grand, people bought them like crazy and the boots soon were sold out everywhere.

Chloé Pre-Fall 2008

The studded ankle boots were part of Chloé’s Pre-Fall 2008 collection and came in an array of colors like red, white, black and green (my personal favorite!).

Kate Bosworth & Sienna Miller Love Chloé

Famous fashionistas Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller both sported the studded ankle boots in red. Kate was literally obsessed with those boots and wore them whenever possible last year. And can we blame her? They are so cute and both women looked absolutely fabulous wearing them, didn’t they?

Vince Camuto “Tema” Studded Booties

UPDATE (10/08/2012): I think I might have a new Chloé Doppelgänger favorite!

Jeffrey Campbell “Starburst” Studded Ankle Boots

UPDATE (05/30/2012): Jeffrey Campbell‘s highly-coveted “Starburst” booties are now available for European fans for at British shoe e-tailer Office. Better get them quick before they sell out!

Free People always seems to get the best Jeffrey Campbell styles. First they got the awesome Ann Deumeulemeester lace-up boots and now they sell knockoffs of the iconic Chloé studded ankle boots (Free People call this style “Northern Lights” while JC and other retailers named it “Starburst”). Don’t they look almost identical? The heel is a bit off, but the studs and buckles are pretty close to the original. The only downsides are that the Jeffrey Campbell studded booties don’t come in red. But the boots are available in black, white and brown, so if you always wanted a budget-friendlier alternative, these Jeffrey Campbell knockoffs are probably your last and only chance as the Chloé booties are a couple of seasons old now.

    Went to the link but could only find Nighthawk in tan at Office. Where did the black go?!

  • http://intheircloset.com Irina

    @Little Miss Random: I’m afraid the black version has sold out. However, judging from past experiences with Office I found out they regularly restock very popular styles so you might be lucky to get your hands on the Nighthawk in black if you keep checking the site every few days. Good luck!

    What is the quality of the new Chloè boots as you can tell the inside is different? The 2009 released ones look slouchy, buttery and relaxed whereas the new release ones look cheap inside.

  • Heidi

    Hi I tried to preorder the Steve madden boots they aren’t on the site anymore. I emailed the support people who said they can’t find it on their catalogue.
    Can you please post the link to the boots ?

  • http://intheircloset.com Irina

    Hi Heidi! It seems like the boot has been taken down temporarily, probably due to copyright infringement issues regarding the Chloé Susan boots. I’ve witnessed this kind of behavior a few times now at Steve Madden, sometimes the particular shoe style pops up again after a few weeks (probably when the copyright issue has been settled in favor of Madden). I suggest you check back with the website a few times per week to see whether the boot comes back in or not. Wishing you the best of luck that it does, of course! :-)
