Alternatives to Isabel Marant crisi boots

I need a good everyday ankle boot. I'm loving the crisi boot but I just can't justify spending that amount of money. Has anyone seen anything similar? Hidden wedge not essential.

any good?
They even have a concealed wedge.

I think these Asos Aloof boots are "inspired by" the Crisi boots. Not sure if they have the wedge or not smile

Ohh they look pretty good. But I've never actually bought shoes from Asos. A bit worried they'll fall apart within 6 months. Any more for any more? grin

I've just placed an order for these beauties. And they come in about 10 different colours too!

Very nice!!!

I've just bought the asos pair in black. Will report back on the probable dubious quality and if they are stuck together with glue that smells of fish. I never learn!

ASOS boots can be great quality. I have a tan leather pair from 4 years ago that are still looking great.

thegoldenlemon Fri 16-Oct-15 11:33:18

Thanks ujjayi, I can but hope. They do seem incredibly cheap. They should be with me tomorrow, I will dutifully report back!

Glue that smells of fish. grin

Black, my topshop raincoat stank for the first month of wearing, a real horrible fishy odour! Google revealed it a common issueconfused. I had morning sickness too. Grim.

Loving this thread. I've been contemplating a pair of crisi boots but can't face the £££. I've found ASOS boots ok quality for the price (I had a couple of years wear out of my last pair), so might risk them.

I like the look of those ASOS Aloof ones ...

faustina Fri 16-Oct-15 18:08:35

I've ordered some too! <sheep>. Smelliest shoes I ever got were from Boden. I had to send them back as the fumes were horrible. Not fishy - chemically - as soon as you opened the box out they wafted.

I really like the look of the aloof boots but has anyone seen anything similar in leather? I feel suede is just going to get ruined.

Hopefully Sat 17-Oct-15 08:58:41

Baa. Have also ordered the aloofs, although had to go for camel as grey was OOS. If anyone is returning a size 8 pair in dark grey let me know!

Annarose2014 Sat 17-Oct-15 11:24:03

Yeah, I'm sitting on my hands cos I live in the rainiest place in the world. Suede is only for admiring....<dramatic sigh>

Hopefully Sat 17-Oct-15 11:33:53

I wear suede in the rain quite happily - I brush and re-spray every few weeks. I so prefer the look of suede that the extra upkeep is worth it for me, but i appreciate it won't be for most people!

Raia Sat 17-Oct-15 15:34:10

Ha, Hopefully, I love the look of the dark grey ones too (they look almost like a lovely shade of grey-green on my screen) and I'm a size 8 grin

Hopefully Sat 17-Oct-15 18:58:48

We clearly need to find all those size 8 bastards who have bought them all and steal their boots grin

BlackGirlAndRobin Sat 17-Oct-15 19:33:28

Size 8! How tall are you ladies?!

Keep us posted on those Aloofs. I've seen a size 4 on eBay if anyone is after a cheap pair.

Hopefully Sat 17-Oct-15 19:48:21

5'6". I have duck feet blush

BlackGirlAndRobin Sat 17-Oct-15 20:08:44

grin Hopefully, I was expecting you to be far taller than I am. I'm a size 7 and 5'9.

I need to start another boring thread on sleeve length for my ridiculously chimp like long arms. Fed up of cold wrists.

Raia Sat 17-Oct-15 20:46:28

Hopefully, check the ASOS website - I just ordered a pair of Aloofs in dark grey for £29 and it wasn't the last pair

Raia Sat 17-Oct-15 20:47:19

btw I'm 5'9" but have silly stick legs so feet look like canoes in most footwear
