(Christopher Kane embroidered lace-up Ghillie boots)
Boots very similar to this retail version were shown on the Christopher Kane (London) runway for his Fall 2010 show. Sexy and romantic, Ghillie-laced heels were the shoe of choice for this show. I am happy to let our readers know that these shortened, ankle-boot variants (‘Giuseppe Zanotti for Christopher Kane’) are available now via Net-a-porter and Luisa via Roma for the small pittance of $1360-$1428. While not exactly lunch money, I can at least dream of scoring a pair of these at clearance prices or post-season overstock sales.
Here’s a quick comparison peek at the original runway styles:
Unfortunately, hubby prefers the higher, runway version of these embroidered beauties to the retail version, but I wouldn’t particularly mind ‘settling for’ these ankle boots if I could realistically work out a budget for them.
A girl can dream, right.? In the meantime, I’ll be crossing my fingers to find these at The Outnet or YOOX come spring or summer.
Oh, and for those of you who prefer the toned-down version without all of the embroidery? Luisa Via Roma has both the shorter black leather & taller black patent versions available. Those will run you $1220 and $1306, respectively.
