Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain Buckled Booties

by Irina on November 24, 2011

UPDATE: This post has been updated on November 24, 2011. Scroll down to see the new add.

These buckled ankle boots were designed by shoe design genius Giuseppe Zanotti for the hottest brand in Fashionland right now, Balmain, for their Fall 2009 footwear range. I wasn’t really a fan of this collection until I saw these badass rocker booties. My only problem: finding the pocket change to afford these. Sigh!
