Today we’ll show you what happens when you get inspired by both Acne Studios, Sweden’s hottest fashion powerhouse, and the epitome of Italian luxury fashion, Valentino. The result is a pretty awesome ankle boot; cool like Acne and detail-oriented like Valentino! Marc Fisher LTD did just that. The basic shape of their designer-inspired shoe looks like a spitting image of Acne’s Jensen boot. The minimalistic boot design didn’t seem to be enough for Marc Fisher though and so they went on to add star-shaped stud-details on the back of their Chelsea boot which bear an uncanny resemblance to Valentino’s stud detailing from the “Starstudded” collection. Coincidence? We don’t think so, and to be honest, we don’t really care because their Acne-Valentino shoe hybrid is a beautiful and classic ankle boot that’s both versatile and eye-catching at the same time. But the best thing is, you don’t have to shell out a whopping $1.495 or even $560 to get all of this shoe goodness, no, these beauties come at a fraction of the real deals’ price:
$199 now: $139.30. Admittedly, that’s still quite a price, but the quality of these imported boots looks superb aaaaaand, now listen up frugal fashionistas, Lord & Taylor is currently running a promotion where you can save 20% off most items with promo code “GIFT” (offer valid through December 24th at 11:59PM EST).
