A little while later and there are similar styles available on the high street, hooray, at much more achievable prices. The Jeffrey Campbell Coltrane boots would have been my first choice, but they've annoyingly sold out in the UK, so i've been keeping my eyes peeled for other high street dupes. Well, luckily, River Island have come to the rescue with these bad boys priced at £65 - I was so very tempted to order the black, as they're probably the safer choice, but i was so drawn to the white pair and eventually chose these (with thanks to people helping on Twitter!). I ordered online with next day delivery and they arrived in time for the weekend, yay. One of the shoes was a little more worn than the other, and the leather was a bit stretched, but as they are leather it's not a massive issue as they'll get scruffy anyway.
But...i love them, and they are so comfy, wore them all day Saturday stomping around Birmingham and no blisters/achy legs. The only thing i would say is that they are quite hard to match up with stuff, i had a bit of a tantrum on Friday night playing around with outfits whilst wearing them, especially because they are properly white (not cream) so they are bright to start with. I think they're great for Summer, and it's nice to have something a bit different as i've not yet seen anyone else with a white pair like these, loving the thick black sole and silver buckles too.
They might sell out, so if you want a pair then be snappy! Are you a fan of cut out boots?
