Double-Take: Givenchy Fold Over Boot

It’s almost boot season! In honor of that fact, I wanted to pay tribute to these stunning fold over boots with shark tooth buckles from Givenchy. There are plenty of new styles coming out for this fall, but there’s something about the balance between simplicity and grandeur that makes them unforgettable. These boots are almost like a shield for your legs because of the sheer amount of layered leather, yet they look very refined because detailing is minimal. The fold over effect is leg-lengthening because it covers the wedge heel, and basically looks like an extension of your pants or leggings. I think they’d be flattering on pretty much everyone. But the price? Not so flattering.

Schutz Arleana (MyHabit, Oak)
Once again, Schutz provides us with another excellent double-take. Although there are significant differences (such as the buckle style, heel shape, and length of the fold-over), my mind immediately thought of the Givenchy boot as soon as I spotted these. I think they are as much of a statement shoe as the original design, but at a more budget-friendly price. Plus, Schutz shoes are always high quality!

Enzo Angiolini Damus (Macy’s)

These boots by Enzo Angiolini are not a perfect double-take, but if you’re going for the wedge with an over-size cuff look, the Damus is a great choice. Enzo shoes are high quality, and most of them are very comfortable.
