Zara and the Isabel Marant Blackson boots

We all knew this was coming, it was simply a matter of time until someone released a boot copying inspired by the Isabel Marant Blackson boots. Mango is not far as I could spot a very similar pair of boots on Kate Moss on this season's lookbook (page 5, but not out yet), but Zara has clearly won the race with more extravagant styles already available.

I am personally not a fan of the Zara versions, what I liked on the original styles was the extremely pointy-toe and the thin heel contrasting with the western vibe which is clearly missing on the Zara styles. The first pair I could still work with but the second one is just tacky. Judge for yourself.

Have a great weekend !

  1. C'est une santiag qui a de l'allure, Marant ou non, mais avec les pavés je crois que je vais passer mon tour!

  2. I know quite a few ladies who have had a lot of luck with Zara shoes but personally, I've found the quality to be abysmal. Out of all the IM boots, I still tend to go back to the Dickers which are by far, the most comfortable and versatile.

    1. I personally am quite lucky when it comes to Zara shoes, I own many and they usually turn out ok (long-lasting & comfy), but these I don't like. They are just too much. As for the IM, I'm with you, DIckers all the way for me :) xx

  3. i agree on the zara versions, the look is 'inspired' but definitely not the same vibe you get from the pencil-thin heels on the marant version! the second one is amazzzzing!

  4. I'm 100% for the Isabel Marant boots. The bottom right pair are my favourites. Everything is just so right with them

  7. I agree. It's that pointy heel and slim heel that make the IM so drool worthy. The embellishment and harness is also awesome. I'd take the originals over the copies any day. Not a fan of the Zara ones - they pale in comparison, especially when they're seen right next to the originals. Excellent spot by the way! xx

    Belle soirée, bises.

  10. I cannot disagree with your judgment. The first one is fine, the second is ew. I as well prefer the original versions much better!

  13. Agree with you. Yes, the first pair is still workable, but second nahh (I saw it IRL yesterday and it looks cheap and tacky as you said).
