Spree vs Steal:YSL caged boots

This season’s key footwear by Yves Saint Laurent key statement shoes this season are the caged ankle boots (€975). The boots have a caged heel and zip back detail.

Claudia Shiffer who is the new face of Yves Saint Laurent this year, wears the caged boots with a coat dress in one of this season’s ads. Yet again, it looks like it’s good to keep the rest of your outfit plain and let the boots be the statement piece.


Topshop are always quick off the mark in copying runway looks, so it doesn’t surprise us when we saw these amazing heels (€95). The shoes themselves don’t have the detail of the YSL version, but we actually prefer them as they are not as extreme, more wearable and have a cool zip detail at the back.

The platform and open toe make these shoes a great buy in themselves and are a fraction of the Yves Saint Laurent price. What do you think of the spree or do prefer the Topshop version?
