7 Expensive It Boots—and How to Get the Look for Under $100

Judith Jones

If you’ve been spending your coffee break clicking through the eye candy of street style imagery from New York, London, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks (guilty!), then you may have noticed some notable designer items pop up over and over again—in particular boots, a fashion-girl staple as the cooler weather draws closer. There are several designer It boots that have been doing the rounds on Instagram these past few seasons—from Paris Texas's knee-high mock boots to Celine’s lace-up ankle boots, and Bottega Veneta’s chunky Chelsea boots—all of which are unquestionably swoon-worthy and all of which happen to carry a pretty sizable price tag.

While investing in a pair of designer boots will never go amiss, if you don’t have a large chunk of change to spend, then there are plenty of affordable alternatives that are just as chic. Below we’ve rounded up seven popular (and rather expensive) It boots and how to get the look for under $100. Insert smug face emoji here.

Celine Glove Lace Ankle Boots

Lace-up boots are a huge trend for fall, and Celine's $1000 lace-up glove booties have been doing the rounds on the streets outside every major fashion week. Zara, Mango, and Nordstrom have some amazing alternatives to help you get the look for less.

Just one scroll of Instagram and you're likely to spot the chic knee-high croc-embossed and snake-effect boots by of-the-moment designer Paris Texas. The expensive-looking style retails at just under $800, but we've found some more affordable alternatives that won't break the bank.

Bottega Veneta Mid-Calf Boots

Chunky and tactile stomping boots are the must-have style to toughen up your floral fall dresses and add a cool-girl edge to your jeans and leather separates this season. While we're currently obsessing over Bottega Veneta's $1000 pair, these under-$100 versions nail the trend perfectly.

If you read WWW regularly, you'll know that the new shoe silhouette for fall, is unquestionably a square-toe. Manu Atelier's square-toe ankle boots have gone viral on Instagram, but if you don't want to spend $500 on the It boot, then try these trendy pairs instead.
