Jeffrey Campbell’s Kasa Lace-Up Woven Sandal Boots for the Gucci Woven Calfskin Boots

July 5, 2011 • By Erika

So remember the Gucci woven calfskin boots we spotted on Nicki Minaj a couple of months ago?

If not, well, then here’s a memory refresher:

Nicki Minaj attends the Samsung Infuse 4G launch event held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, California on May 12, 2011

We ALL loved these boots when we saw them on Miss Minaj but unfortunately, these retailed for a hefty $3,750.00 then and we couldn’t find a nice lower-cost alternative to them no matter how hard we looked.

Well, that was then and this is now. Oh, the boots still sell for $3,750.00 at Neiman Marcus (pshaw, it should be included in their up to 55% off summer sale!) but we did find this awesome dark brown alternative from none other than always-on-top-of-the-trends shoe label Jeffrey Campbell!

So what do you think? Not bad eh?

OKAY so they’re NOT a total lookalike, they’re not the same color and they’re not even stilettos, but what we do love about the Jeffrey Campbells is that they’ve got the same woven lace-up look as the Guccis. And that’s what we’re really going for in this boot anyway, something that’s summery and refreshing but still unmistakably a BOOT.

Okay, so the Jeffrey Campbells “sandal boots” are still not 100%  a boot but hey, you can’t exactly say they’re just sandals either!

Hmm, this might not be the best look-for-less alternative we’ve written about.

Anyway, the pictures of the Jeffrey Campbelll Kasa lace-up sandal boots above are from Free People and you can get them there for $188.00.

Karmaloop has just stocked them recently and you can get these same boots there for $148.00.

The Gucci woven calfskin boots as mentioned are $3,750.00 at Neiman Marcus.
