I promise, Target is not compensating me for these posts (although I wish they did). My trip to Target last week brought to my attention the lovely boots in above right photo. The minute I laid my eyes on them, I just knew that something about them looked familiar. Sure enough, they're basically almost identical to the Rag & Bone Suede Harrow Bootie. Although the outside part of the ankle has a buckle, the wrap around detailing with the two suede plates definitely are inspired by the Rag & Bone version.
For a fraction of the cost, I obviously had to try them on for comfort. Although the shoe itself fits nicely, because there are three straps of leather wrapped around the front shaft, it's rather complicated to put on and take off. The straps are actually laced into the shoe at the back and the movement of the leather against suede just isn't a smooth action. If it takes me that much time to put on/take off a simple shoe, I don't think that it's worth it. Although I love the shoe to pieces, and for the amazing price it was, I didn't end up purchasing it.
I have however heard testimonials from other ladies who have purchased the shoe and are head over heels in love with it. So if the lack of fit feasibility isn't something that bothers you then I'd definitely recommend picking up a pair!
