Steep vs Cheap: Acne ‘Pistol’ Boots

‘Tis the shoe that is owned by many a fashion editor and we’ll no doubt be seeing it springing up all over the place at the forthcoming fashion weeks. With their round toe and stacked heel, the Acne ‘Pistol’ Boots have definitely reached cult status.

The wave of Western inspired designs we saw on the catwalk from the likes of Just Cavalli, Jeremy Scott and Thakoon mean cowboy boots are big news. Although, not the big chunky embroidered ones we saw seasons ago.

No the trend now is much more understated and these boots are absolute perfection. With a heel giving just enough height and in a gorgeous tan colour, we love them.

Although if £370 is a bit out of your price range, look no further than Topshop. Their ‘Ambush’ boots are widely regarded as the next best thing to the Acne ‘Pistols’ and, we have to admit, they are strikingly similar.

With an identical stacked heel, side zip and round toe and in tan leather too, they are definitely the next best thing. And at a fraction of the price, what is not to love?

Acne ‘Pistol’ Boots, £370, available at Matches.

‘Ambush’ Ankle Boots, £75, available at Topshop.
