When I first laid my eyes on Zara‘s studded ankle boots pictured below, I instantly fell in love with them! Many fashionistas around the world saw these studded booties as Zara’s ode to Chloé’s highly popular Susan boots and so it didn’t take very long until the Zara booties were completely sold out in every Zara store. Personally, I cyberstalked these booties for a few weeks, constantly hoping they would go on sale before my size became out of stock since $199 seemed way too expensive for a Zara shoe to me. Unfortunately, I never got lucky and the Zara booties never became mine. However, today I discovered these almost spot-on Zara dupes at DSW which look practically identical to the pricey Zara version but cost only $69.95 (which is approx. $130 less than the retail price of the Zara booties). The stud-embellishments aren’t quite as detailed on the Coconuts by Matisse booties and the sole is also differently colored, but the overall design is still very close to the Zara original. I must say I’m tempted.
