Real vs. Steal – Frye Veronica Slouch Boots

Let’s be honest. When it comes to shoe shopping 9 out of 10 times when we freak out about a pair and start squealing “Oh my God! These are to-die-for!“, it’s about those gorgeous, embellished, satin peep-toe stilettos also known as the shoes we almost never wear because a) they’re too high b) not appropriate for everyday wear or c) just too precious to be worn (I mean, you don’t want to risk getting them scuffed, dusty or rained on, right?). Don’t get me wrong: I love my sky-high pink stiletto sandals with all my heart, but whenever I storm out the door I most probably am not wearing these. So last year, I wanted to be reasonable for once and thus forced myself to get flat and comfortable boots. And surprisingly, I went home with 2 beautiful pairs. Both were very similar to Frye‘s Veronica boots below and I just can’t tell you how much I love them. They’re extremely comfortable, keep me warm during winter and look super stylish as well. One of the best purchases ever! I get so much wear out of these.

Steve Madden “VERONNA” Buckle Boots

I recently discovered these Steve Madden boots and thought they’d make a wonderful budget-friendly option if you can’t afford the real deal. The style is almost identical and even the name of the boots sounds similar to Frye’s. The boots are currently marked down to $99.95 (was $159.95) and come in either black, brown or brown distressed.

    they are really hideous, i see no beauty.

  • Tara

    Where can I find the Steve Madden Veronna boots? Can’t seem to find them anywhere online. Love them and want them!!

  • Hi Tara,

    I think the Veronna boots are sold out, but Steve Madden has an almost identical version called “FRENCCHH” for $129.95 which is available at Amazon.

    Another great alternative would be the $169.95 Steve Madden “FAIRPORT” boots (available at Amazon).

    Hope I could help with this! 🙂
