Yet another new in and this time a long term investment.
To be 100% honest, I was looking for a timeless and extremely simple, slick pair of walkable suede ankle boots with a normal stiletto heel and a long shaft for winter(boots like these look great not only with skinny jeans, but with skirts), but I simply cannot be bothered to spend over 500 Euros in a pair of shoes that can be found in the high street in pretty decent prices, quality, and designs.
Initially I was eyeing these ones from Balenciaga and these ones from Saint Laurent(the lower heel version here), but like previously said, I think their design can be better and it might be way too simple and “common” (nothing wrong with simple and common, but for over 500 Euros, you really reconsider it) to invest in.
At the end, I feel that as long as the design is not fairly unique and with a je ne sais quoi or a twist, I cannot justify such a big purchase, which was the main reason why I decided at the very end to purchase these Isabel Marant boots. Why? It’s all about the cone heel(which makes them more comfortable and easier to walk with), the suede and leather contrast, the blackest blackness, the slouchiness, and they literally go with any kind of outfit.
At the start I was a bit hesitant about purchasing them, since I already own a pair of Isabel Marant boots(the ‘Lazio’) which look not exactly similar to these ones, but you can see that it’s the same designer and I usually always opt for going for different designers and diametrically different styles for the sake of variety in my wardrobe. However, I might next year invest in an extremely simple pair, but for now, I am happy with these and their edginess, since they do add variety to my shoe collection.
So welcome home, second pair of Isabel Marant boots.
