I’ve been coveting these Sam Edelman booties for quite some time. The blogosphere has been calling them “instant classics” and a must buy for awhile now but I wasn’t sure they would look good on me. Since I don’t have a Nordstrom anywhere remotely close by, I’ve also been hesitant to order a $160 shoe that might need to be returned via the post office. Sometimes procrastinating pays off and sometimes it doesn’t. This is one of those times where it may pay off double!
Here is the Sam Edelman Bootie from Nordies. It’s currently on sale for $130 making it a fairly good deal compared to the original price. It’s got a real suede upper and 1 1/2 inch heel. People love this boot and it has over 150 five star reviews!
Here is the Old Navy Zip Ankle Bootie which is currently going for $40. It’s fully synthetic making it Vegan friendly! It’s also got a 1 1/2 inch heel. The only visual difference is the small grosgrain pull on the back of the bootie. Is it just me or do these look like the exact same shoe? I have no idea what the quality of this bootie might be as it’s got no reviews online. I do know that Sam Edelman shoes run narrow and Old Navy shoes are either true to B width or a little more on the wide side depending on style. Even though I know $40 isn’t just a drop in the bucket for some of my readers, this bootie offers all of the style of the more expensive version. I’ll probably buy this and use it as a “starter” bootie since I have no booties in my current shoe collection. If it then works with my wardrobe, I’ll look into pulling the trigger on the Sam Edelman bootie at Nordstrom’s big yearly sales.
Who do you think won this match? The Sam Edelman Bootie in the “Petty” style for $$$ or the Old Navy Zip Ankle Bootie for $? Let us know in the comments below!
