Balmain likes to ask us to pay hundreds for a ripped up tee-shirt and thousands for a pair of canvas boots. Kim Kardashian may splurge on Balmain, but I have never felt the urge to or found any item of which I could justify the price. Kim choose to wear the $1,195 Balmain Lace-Up Canvas Ankle Boots out on the town in Miami. These lace-up boots are made of khaki colored canvas.
So are they worth it?
Not to me. When buying designer handbags and shoes, we know the price tag is infused with paying for the brand. But there is only so far many of us will go, and for me, Balmain asks far too much for what they give.
There is nothing interesting to these boots, other than the price. The heel measures 4.5 inches and there is black lace-up front with two buckle details at the side. That is it. There is nothing more to these shoes. No kind of leather detailing (other than lining), or studs. They don’t walk for you. These shoes simply are a pair of ankle boots made out of canvas. Would you ever splurge on a pair of shoes like this? Buy via Net A Porter for $1,195.
