In the absence of Acne....

So, you'll remember in my post here how I was harping on about being desperate for the nude Acne 'Pistol' boots. The thing is, they cost £360, and I don't think I can bear to spend a months rent on a pair of boots....well, I can, to be fair, but I don't have it to spare, so that kind of kicks that idea into touch.
In this mindset I thought it would be worth looking for something similar. Not a difficult task, you might think-I mean, how basic and simple are the Acne boots? (above) I thought (wrongly) that it would be easy to find an identikit pair.
FAIL! I have found 3 other styles after spending an entire evening trawling the internet.

First up: River Island, £74.99
Pros: Very similar in colour and shape
Very simple
Cons: Look at the height of that heel!

Pied a Terre Ostrya P £165
Pros: Great shape
Perfect heel height
Cons: A little darker than I would like

Radley Grays £150
Pros: Lovely heel
Great shape
Cons: Don't like the cuff
Material looks cheap.

I am like the shoe version of Goldilocks right now. I can't stop until I find a pair that is just right!

I've just discovered these!
These are just about perfect! I can't believe it! They're from Clarks of all places, and cost £79 which is right at the top of my budget but obviously are a lot more affordable than £360!
I work near to a big Clarks store so I am going to go and investigate them in the flesh to see how they fit and if they really are as good as they look!
What do you think?!

The Clarks pair look almost identical! Shopping around really does pay off! Hope they are what you want when you see them in real life x
