I have some serious issues with Balmain. It’s not that i don’t like their designs, because I frequently do: it’s simply that everything they make is so horribly, horribly expensive. Seriously, I know they’re a high-end design house; I realise their products are “aspirational”, but Balmain, more than most other labels, seem to feel they have a licence to print money, purely by virtue of putting their name on something.
With that mini-rant over, I present these five-buckle boots, which, admittedly, are rather lovely, and actually rather cheaper than many Balmain creations, at “just” £1,160? Ah, maybe I’m just bitter!
BUY: Balmain buckle embellished boots, £1,160
