Real Deal Vs. the Steal: Balenciaga’s Buckle Ankle Boot for Less

Posted Tuesday January 22, 2013 9:23 AM GMT

Stars like Nicole Richie and Miley Cyrus are big fans of Balenciaga’s Buckle Ankle Boot.

But with a price tag of $1,195, we had to resign our hopes of replicating this particular celeb style — or so we thought.

Imagine our surprise when we stumbled upon Jeffery Campbell’s “Coltrane” Bootie. The shoe is edgy, chunky, and boasts the same buckle detailing and cutout design as its high-end twin.

The best aspect of this alternative option is its price. Ringing in at an affordable $199.95, these urban kicks are a whopping $1,000 cheaper than Balenciaga’s version! Now that’s what we call a steal.
