Real vs. Steal – Loeffler Randall Felix Suede Booties

by Irina on November 18, 2015

Ankle boots. I can’t have enough of those! Ever since finding myself being absolutely in love with Acne’s iconic Pistol boots, it kind of started a rather unhealthy obsession of mine: collecting black ankle boots. I don’t have an actual number, but my estimate is that I own between 15-20 pairs of simple black ankle boots at the moment. I kid you not. Luckily, I do wear many of those boots very regularly, so the purchases feel at least somewhat justified. Blogging about fashion (and shoes especially) of course doesn’t help with the obsession. I am being confronted with new contenders practically every day! One of the most promising ones is this gorgeous black suede ankle boot by Loeffler Randall. I love the simplicity of the streamlined design, the velvety suede leather and the contrast-colored stacked heel and leather outsole. It’s the perfect go-to bootie with all your jeans outfits. The only drawback is the price of $395! It’s certainly not the most expensive shoe we’ve featured here on this blog, but it’s not exactly a budget find either.

Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry “Maddox” Stacked Heel Booties

Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this gorgeous, spot-on Loeffler Randall Felix dupe by Chinese Laundry. Apart from the slightly different upper material, these booties here are pretty much identical to the real deal, but cost only $64 (sale price!) instead of $395! Steal deal alert! Also available in tobacco and taupe leather (looooove!). These booties sell like hot cakes, so I wouldn’t wait too long with ordering, Nordstrom is already almost out of these beauties.

H&M Suede Ankle Boots

If you don’t want to spend over $100, check out these suede booties I found at H&M. The design is very similar to the Loeffler Randall real deal, but these shoes cost just $79.99 instead. Plus, they have a faux-fur lining, so these would make the perfect winter boots.

New Look Wide Fit Black Suede Block Heel Ankle Boots

And lastly, a steal deal alternative by New Look for all our European readers. It’s not an identical match (higher heel, side instead of back zip), but the overall look is still quite similar I’d say.
