Save or Splurge? Lace ankle boots by Roberto Cavalli and Topshop

Lace_ankle_bootsThis isn’t a look for everyone. It’s not, for instance, a look for us, because something about the words “lace ankle boots” turns us off. There’s no doubt that lace is hot right now, though, or that ankle boots are still very much in fashion (are they ever not?), so assuming that you wanted to see the two come together, in the form of a lace ankle boots, what we want to know is: would you save or splurge on them?

The Topshop boots on the left aren’t exactly cheap at £70, but that’s but a drop in the ocean compared to the £695 price tag on the Roberto Cavalli versions on the right, which are from Net-a-Porter.

Which do you prefer? Save? Splurge? Or, like us, neither?

    I like both– but the looks are different enough that I wouldn’t really say the same thing is going on.

    Neither, but if I HAD to, I’d take the Save one. LOL

    Not my thing really, but even though I wouldn’t buy them, I do prefer the splurge ones, especially the heel. I think that with a black pencil skirt they could look classy.

    You totally gotta splurge! The lace detailing on the Roberto Cavalli design is fantastic. Almost looks like you’re wearing stockings with a pair of black heels instead of a boot. Also, the design won the Shoe of the Day award from the So Many Shoes community: http://www.somanyshoes.com/shoes/roberto-cavalli-lace-ankle-boots/1919

    Ooohhhhhh, but the splurge ones look just so much better! I like the coloring, heel, and lace design on them better, so if I really wanted a pair of these boots, I would splurge.
