Yes, it’s really time to start thinking about winter. It’s already cold enough to wear boots, but we’re especially partial to crochet boots. (Yah, Ugg boots aren’t the only boots we like!)
LIVS are THE hottest crochet boots around. They were big for winter 2008 and they’re going to stick around for winter 2009.
Not only are they the hottest crochet boots around, they are THE original crochet boots. (And they’re washable too!) Apparently not many people know that, including Uggs. And as much as we like the Ugg Classic Tall Boots, they really lost points with us when they stole the LIVS design and made their own crochet boots. Yes, we hate them for that.
You may recall, last year we told you how Uggs ripped off the crochet boot design and started selling them like hotcakes. Check out our Exclusive Interview With The Creator of LIVS, Diana FitzGerald for the full story.
If you want crochet boots for a little less cash, here are a few knock-offs that’ll fit your pre-christmas budget:
First, we’ll head over to Alloy. A teenager’s shopping heaven, we know, but the deals are too good to pass up. You can get the Tall Sweater Boot that folds down for about $50.
I even found a really funky pair with pom pom tassels! They are made by Groove and the style is called “Rejoice”! I think you’ll be rejoicing that you have the guts to wear these boots! lol
Go Jane also has some cool cable knit sweater boots that are like an Ugg/Livs hybrid for only $17.99. Now that’s a good deal for a pair of boots!
