When it comes to ankle boots, nowaways I always turn to Acne Studios first. The Swedish fashion house somehow became my favorite go-to brand for longlasting, classic boot styles within the last few years. My love for Acne shoes started with the ever so popular Pistol boots, later I became madly obsessed with Acne’s Jensen chelsea boots. My latest Acne shoe crush is JEMMA, a beautiful, classic heeled chelsea ankle boot that comes in either smooth or suede leather and has a pointed-toe with metal toe-caps. Basically, it’s the JENSEN bootie on a stacked 3,5″/9cm heel. These pointy stiletto booties have been on my wish list for a little while now, but Acne shoes aren’t exactly cheap and unfortunately I don’t have an extra $570 lying around freely right now.

Tony Bianco Dain Stiletto Ankle Boots
If you’re an Acne Jemma fan like me, but also happen to be on a budget, check out these fabulous stiletto booties by Tony Bianco which are really close Jemma dupes. The boot design is pretty much spot-on, they even have the signature metal toe-caps. The only noticeable difference is that the Tony Bianco boots have a higher stiletto heel (10,5cm). Available colors: black, tan brown and white. Price: A$249.95.

H&M Suede Ankle Boots
While browsing through H&M‘s shoe section, I noticed these taupe suede kitten heel booties and thought they’d make a nice Acne Jemma look for less alternative. I like that the heel on these is lower than on the Acne originals which gives you more of a selection when it comes to picking your Jemma dupe favorite. Personally, I’d prefer a bootie with a lower heel because I can’t do an 8 hour work day in 4″ stiletto heels (anymore) – nor do I want to. So I’d probably go for the H&M version in this case. Price: $69.99.
