There are times when you clap your eyes on items in a shop, or in this case a press day, so amazing, that you know you can’t possibly go on without owning said items. Succumbing to such materialistic urges feels even better when you know you’ve got yourself a bargain, and that’s why today I’m talking about boots. Not just any boots. You may remember if you saw my recent Press Day Vlog, that I spotted some killer boots at New Look’s AW14 press day, and couldn’t wait to get my mitts on them. Finally, having come online, they are now in my possession, for a lowly £34.99. The reason these are such noteworthy boots? They are almost an identical copy of the highly-sought after and highly expensive Jeffrey Campbell ‘Mulder’ boots, marrying their sci-fi style with the name of the VERY famous sci-fi character.
The original Mulders have been on my wishlist for the longest time, but I can’t justify the hefty price tag at this moment in time. At £34.99 these look-a-likes are an absolute snip compared to the originals, and I actually prefer them, something I talked about in my recent collective haul where you can see these in person so to speak! Unlike the Mulders, these boots have a zip up the front, a functional aspect that doubles up as aesthetically pleasing. I adore zip detailing and the punk edge it adds to these boots in particular! These aren’t actually as high as you’d imagine, OK well they are, but what I mean is, they don’t feel high at all, due to the platform on both the front and the heel. Your foot is not on that much of an incline, so you won’t be tottering around like a Barbie doll in these, they’re actually extremely comfortable. I can’t get enough of these crazy heels, and will be wearing them all winter long with more subdued ensembles to play them down. They’re great for dressing up or down and add instant badassery to every outfit, no question.
That’s it for today’s post! Would you rock these? Do you already have a pair? Let me know by leaving me a comment below or tweeting me @MillieDelacoe. That’s it for today, be sure to check in on Sunday when I’ll be uploading my Shoe Collection video, also featuring these babes! Until next time…
