Splurge or Save: The Chain Ankle Boot

Splurge or Save? The Chain Ankle Boot

Outside of a good Doc Marten or creeper, Saint Laurent’s recent grunge ressurection has made sure I can’t let 2 hours go by without seeing a ‘punk-inspired’ boot online or in a magazine.  Case in point: the ankle boot with oversized chain across the front from Givenchy.

 It’s simple and conjures up spidery tights, ditsey dresses or the skinniest strategically ripped jeans.

I’ve noticed the preference for splurge or save tends to reflect the income of the person that I ask.

 Assuming cash was not an issue which do you think?

Givenchy or Kurt Geiger?

      I think the KG’s are definitely more feminine shape wise

    • Karen says:

      That’s what I gather. I’ll look online. thx

    • Karen says:

      oh really? I was in there the other day but didn’t see them.

    hmmm… the Givenchy looks more “polished,” literally. I don’t care for the matte finish on the KG.

    • Karen says:

      interesting. I got a lot of thoughts on instagram about these two and know what you mean about the polished finish.

      Guess it’s a personal preference thing….?

    hmmmmm……if i were to choose……i like the shape of the kurt geiger boots but also love how the chain goes from end to end on the givenchy one. i looked at the sandro version, very nice but the cut out is too balenciaga looking. if you don’t mind the cut out, then i would choose between sandro and givenchy…..gold or silver……….oh too difficult to decide…..
