The Balenciaga cut-out boots alternatives


I finally received my cut-out boots, the perfect alternatives (doppelganger in fact!) to the Balenciaga cut-out boots. I know that they're very close to a copy, but it doesn't really worry me as long as they aren't real copies (hope you're following me here), and because I don't have 1 250€ to spend on a pair of boots. They're absolute gorgeous, and funny thing is, my husband absolutely loves them when I thought they were definitely man repelling! If you want them, you'll have to be patient as they are constantly out-of-stock and you need to pre-order them (it took me over a month to get them). Secondly: they stink! My daughters were so horrified by the smell that they instantly froze on their way to give me my after kindergarten hug! Oh and thirdly, the sole is so smooth I wouldn't go out on frosted ground (actually, they're perfect for ice-skating!) But what wouldn't we do for fashion...

Ca y est! J'ai reçu mes bottines ouvertes, le parfait ersatz (sosie en fait!) des bottes Balenciaga. Je sais qu'elles sont vraiment très proches d'une copie, mais je m'en fiche tant que ce ne sont pas de vraies copies (faut me suivre...), et parce que je n'ai pas 1 250€ à mettre dans une paire de chaussures. Elles sont magnifiques, et ce qui m'a vraiment étonnée, c'est que mon mari les adore, alors que je pensais qu'elles étaient plutôt dans la catégorie tue-l'amour! Si vous les voulez, il va falloir être patiente, car ils sont constamment en rupture de stock et qu'ils faut les pré-commander (j'ai mis un mois à les recevoir). Deuxièmement: elles puent! Mes filles se sont arrêtées net au moment de me sauter au cou en arrivant de la maternelle! Ah, et troisièmement, la semelle est si lisse que je ne m'aventurerais pas sur un sol glissant (en fait elles sont parfaites pour faire du patin à glace!) Mais que ne ferions-nous pas pour la mode...

And for those who think they're horrible, here is beautiful Charlotte wearing her step-on-dog-shit shoes/Et pour ceux qui les trouve horribles, voici la belle Charlotte avec ses écrases-merde aux pieds:

  21. Haha, tu lis dans mes pensées, je viens de passer ma soirée à écumer internet pour trouver un ersatz qui me convienne... Celles-là sont carrément canon !!! Mais malheureusement un peu hors budget pour moi. J'en ai trouvé des pas mal (plutôt dans le style Jeffrey Campbell, en fait), par contre, je pense que mon homme ne va du tout être fan, lui ;-)

  29. In my opinion it's not pretty if the shoes are completely different from the real ones, but these ones aren't. Great find:)
