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.
