Boot Battle: Dolce & Gabbana Mesh and Suede Lace-Up Booties Vs. Two Lips Attitude Booties

May 25, 2011 • By Erika

It’s been a while since we last had a boot battle. This one today is a particularly good one.

While searching for Brooklyn Decker’s Dolce & Gabbana mesh and lace peep toe booties a couple of days ago, I came across these other mesh and suede lace-up booties also from Dolce & Gabbana:

Thes seriously sexy mesh and suede mash-up on these fierce booties made them very unforgettable and left an indelible impression on me.

So when I saw these Two Lips booties while shoe shopping online today, you KNOW what these instantly reminded me of! The mesh, the suede, the lace-up front — it’s all very Dolce & Gabbana. If it weren’t for the bigger holes in the mesh fabric, I could easily mistake these for the D&Gs at first glance:

But that’s just at first glance. The slightly thicker platform, the fatter suede shoelaces and yes, the larger holes in the mesh fabric on these Two Lips booties completely alter the original D&G design! You know that we’re always game for lower-cost options and look-for-less alternatives here on Boots 4 You but I wish Two lips had at least used a finer mesh for their version.

As for the prices, the Dolce & Gabbana booties are $760.00 (discounted down from the original $950.00 price) while the Two Lips booties are $69.97 (also discounted down from $99.95). I guess with that huge price difference, we can accept a few tweaks here and there.
