The holidays are upon us and it’s time to start thinking about what shoes to wear for upcoming festivities. (Be sure to stay tuned for a roundup of the best shoes to wear to holiday parties!) Coming from a woman on a budget, my tastes tend to reach beyond my means, and browsing the web for some booties is what gave rise to this Look for Less, holiday edition.
I first stumbled upon the Prada Laser Cut Open Toe Booties and was envisioning myself wearing them to many holiday parties and even long after that. I had my credit card in hand, ready to type in those magical numbers, when the sudden realization that I will soon begin holiday shopping for family and friends set in. So I figured, why not research some other alternatives? That’s when I came across these MICHAEL Michael Kors Aiden Studded Laser-Cut Booties.
The obvious difference between these two booties is that Michael Kors incorporates stud embellishments, while the Prada booties are more simplistic, with the entire bootie covered in an all-around luscious suede. Both booties have similar heel height, feature an open toe and zip up behind the ankle. The main (and most important) difference, though, is the price. The Prada booties are $600 more then the Michael Kors versio for a very similar design. Which pair to get? If you are on a budget, the Michael Kors booties are just as luxurious looking as the Prada alternative.
