'Phresh' Off The Runway like Rih
Posted on October 10 2017
Ok. so those of you that have been following 2017 fashion, you've watched the craze in March over these $10,000 rhinestone encrusted Yves Saint Laurent boots (pictured above). A week after they hit the runway, bad gal Rih Rih was seen slaying in em, as well as Celine Dion. Ever since, there's been an extensive waiting list that I assume has went down a bit, due to more celebrities being seen with them (i.e. Keyshia Kai'or & Trina on the BET Hip Hop awards last night). Since the boot was in such high demand with limited supply, many companies decided to flip, twist, and remix the look into their own style, and below I've listed four replicas that I've officially deemed worthy of your attention and wallet : ) And they are:
#4: The Nasty Gal 'Twist Glitter' Boot, $90.
I've always been a crazy fan of Nasty Gal's eccentric, modern hippie style, and these boots don't make it any easier. Although they don't have the standout triangle heel like the original YSLs, the slouch and glitter design still makes them a strong contender.
#3: The Lola Shoetique 'Money Moves' Boot, $36.
Since my favorite shoe store in Baltimore, Bare Feet, closed down, I've found myself on this site more than necessary looking through their LARGE selection of boots, heels, and etc., etc. Their 'Money Moves' Boots almost resemble Nasty Gal's, except they added the triangle heel, and these are little more friendlier on your pockets : )
#2: The Steve Madden 'CRUSHING' Boot, $299.
Good ol' Steve has some of the dopest shoes in the game, and he's definitely outdone himself with these. They have the slouch, a stiletto heel, and rhinestone detail all over the WHOLE. BOOT. How can you not love these?
#1: The No. one shoe on my list is The Fashion Nova 'Glammed Out' Boot, $149.
So I had to get these for myself. These things are BAD, they have the triangular heel, a MAJOR slouch design, with rhinestones all over the boot. If I didn't know any better, I'd think these were the original Ysl boots-they resemble them to a T! And the last time I checked, they had quite a few sizes left. Hop on it girls!
