Prada Tall Boots with Ruche & Bow Detail

Summer is not even truly here yet and we are being tempted by fall boots already. Since I adore boots, this is more of a treat than an annoyance. After seeing this pair of lovelies while surfing the web, I can't wait to try them on in person. These look to be classic in silhouette but feminine in detailing. Overall, although this pair of boots looks a little odd with the extra slouchy ruche & bow details, I find myself oddly attracted to them. I am just not so attracted to the retail price of $1300. What happened to the days when a gal can buy designer boots for under $800? What do you think, savvy or sloppy?

  1. Wow, these are kinda fascinating. I think I love them, but I couldn't wear them with every outfit. I probably wouldn't pair these with a slouchy outfit or anything too complicated, otherwise the entire look will look messy. I really like the fact these boots combines skinny & straight with volume.

  10. I really like them in the pic, but I think they're the kind of boots I would have to see on someone to decide if I like them or not. If you get them, you have to take pics!

  13. I'm on the fence with these... I think I like them, but would have to see them on to be sure. -- Might be one of those things that I like on other people, but wouldn't wear them myself...

    Price is ridiculous however...!

  17. I agree with the Clothes Horse, I am on the fence about this pair of boots. It's quite unique but I don't know what to wear with this.

  20. Is the top part above the elastic band, part of the boots or is it the mannequin's leg? If it's part of the boot, then I'm not too crazy about them. They kind of reminds me of Japanese girls and their socks =)
