Look for Less: Chloe ‘Susanna’ Studded Leather Boots

by on August 10, 2012

The Chloe ‘Susanna’ boot has become a cult favorite amongst fashionistas since they first came on the scene several years ago. I’ve been infatuated with them from afar, because unfortunately they’ve been scooped up by just about everyone who’s ever seen them. I’m pleased to share that Zara (one of my favorite stores, as you can tell) has created an amazing copy, priced at a fraction of the cost.

Although they do look different from the Chloe boots (I don’t think they can legally make an exact copy), the Zara version is equally striking. I love the bohemian/western/biker vibe that these boots have – they’d look amazing with some black skinny jeans, or even a skirt if you like to mix feminine and masculine elements.

I love the Zara version‘s single, crossed buckle at the ankle, and of course the studs are an amazing addition. Zara offers the shoe in both a black and red color for only $189; it’s a steal compare to the Chloe version, retailing at $1,345. On Net-A-Porter, the Chloe boot is available in the red color, as well as a studded python (I know, basically the best combination you could ask for).

What do you think of this shoe?
