Ankle Booties

Update: This post has been updated on November 28, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

Writing up a post about these “Ceinture” buckled boots by Balenciaga is a tough one for me. Why? Well, mainly because I don’t find myself very attracted to this type of masculine biker boots. Nor am I tall or skinny enough to pull off such a bulky boot. However, since these boots have been making the rounds on a number of style blogs and celebs lately, here you go with a couple of budget-friendly alternatives.

While I was still majorly crushing for the “Pistol” boots, somehow Acne‘s “Jensen” chelsea boot has managed to gain quite some popularity in the fashion world, especially among fashion bloggers. You really have to leave it to Acne to only have to tweak a few minimal details on a simple boot design here and there and – BOOM! – bestseller! I love all the pointy details of the Jensen boot, just not its price of $560!

Christian Louboutin. So Kate. In a bootie version! Now if that doesn’t make you gasp for air, I don’t know what would! I mean, just look at this perfectly curved arch! I’ve always been obsessed with Louboutin’s insanely sexy “So Kate” pumps and now that they’ve gotten a fall/winter update in the form of these gorgeous heeled stiletto booties, I guess I’ll have to once again expand my imaginary wish list of designer shoes I wish I could afford (which is already long enough). These killer stiletto booties come in a range of beautiful colors and uppers and are available in either a 4″ (left) or 5″ (right) version. Unfortunately, these heels are so popular, they’re virtually sold out everywhere. Bummer!

Again, this one too is far from being a budget find at $240, but it still is $855 cheaper than the real deal, so I’d consider it a viable option nonetheless.

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.

Lemaré “Chantal” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (11/11/2016): OMG! Just spotted these insanely similar Chloé Susanna boot dupes by Lemaré! Aren’t they absolutely gorgeous? And so spot-on to the real deal, too! They come in various colors and uppers and you can even choos between different metal hardwares (silver or gold). The price is a little steep at €260, but I don’t think I have seen a Chloé Susanna dupe as spot-on as this one, so it might be worth the investment! You better don’t wait around for them to go on sale because these babies will sell out fast!

L’idea by Lori Studded Ankle Boots

Update (09/20/2016): Run, don’t walk and get these kickass Chloé dupes by L’idea by Lori ASAP because these beauties are by far the best and most spot-on Chloé Susanna knockoffs I’ve seen yet! They do come at a price, yes, but just look at the quality and all the details – a splurge worth making if you ask me. Anyway, these are definitely going to sell out quickly, believe me, so if you feel yourself fancying these babies, don’t contemplate too long and buy them now before it’s too late!

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.

For someone who has always loved the delicacy of high heels and feminine silhouettes when it comes to shoes, lately I’ve been finding myself strangely gravitating more and more to tougher, more masculine footwear for some reason. So much so that I recently decided to take the plunge and went on to buy my very first pair of black, Doc Martens-like lace-up combat boots a few weeks ago and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since! I wear them with black skinny jeans, ripped denim, a flowy knit dress, a cute A-line skirt, you name it; everything seems to kind of work with these boots that will toughen up any look in an instant with their rough and functional design. And if you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know I have a soft spot for everything Alexander McQueen. So how could I not love these super badass silver studded metal cap-toe boots? They’re definitely not for the faint of heart and certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I guess this is one of the main reasons I find myself so drawn to them! These heavy boots look like they could easily be part of a funky steampunk cosplay costume. But in a good way! Now that we’ve established the fabulousness of these boots – have you seen that price tag? $1.995! One grand per foot! Sadly, this kind of pricing doesn’t exactly fall into my personal shoe shopping bracket.

Jeffrey Campbell “Gustine” Studded Cap-Toe Boots

Jeffrey Campbell to the rescue! Now look at these stud-adorned combat lace-up boots here! Aren’t they just so crazy cool? I love the oversized buckles! They’re not identical dupes of the McQueen boots above, but certainly similar enough to double as a great, look for less designer alternative if you can’t afford or simply don’t want to spend 2k on a pair of boots. These darling here might not be a steal at $179.95, but they are over 90% cheaper than the real deal which – I would say – you could consider a steal deal in comparison! Some sizes are already sold out though, so you better be fast if you want to get ahold of these stylish studded biker boots!
