The Look For Less: Isabel Marant Studded Booties

Celebrities have been hot for studded ankle boots since Chloé released their ridiculously popular “Susan” (right, on Kate Bosworth) in 2008, and with Isabel Marant’s updated, higher-heeled Americana (left, on Kate Moss) take on a similar pair, it’s only a matter of time before every starlet is sporting them on the street once again. I hesitate to call it a mere trend, because these shoes have serious staying power — just ask eternal trendsetters like these two Kates, who have both worn theirs with surprising regularity when you consider that they have, like, every awesome thing ever at their beck and call. I’ve had my eye on the booties for years, and while I imagine it must be very satisfying to own ‘em, the best thing about a super-popular shoe is that it often “inspires” plenty of more reasonably priced versions. Cop this celeb favorite look for way less, after the jump!
