Inspired by...Ann Demeulemeester - *Updated 12/9/09*

See bottom of post for update.

Thank you to the reader who sent this find to me!

These intricate triple lace up boots by Ann Demeulemeester originally retailed for $1800 and eventually were marked down to $729 at Barneys. (Photo credit: Nitrolicious)

While not a total steal at $242, these (not quite so intricate) Jeffrey Campbell Rilla lace up boots might work as an inspired by boot if you couldn't manage the splurge on the real thing. They are available at Revolve Clothing and you can click here to purchase.

Shopbop also has these boots for $274 and you can click on the photo below to purchase.

*Update - 10/21/09* - Pour La Victoire's Kerry boot has the triple lace detail that the Ann Demeulemeester version has and retails for $495 at Shopbop. (Use code INTHEFAMILY15 before 11:59 PDT tonight for 15% off!). These boots are also available in brown, click on the photo below to purchase.

*Update - 12/9/09* - Still looking for a pair of boots that have the triple lace detail but are cheaper than the originals AND the Pour La Victoire boots? Chocolat Blu's version has VERY limited sizes left, but these boots are a great lookalike and retail for $244.95 (still pricey, but cheaper than any other option so far).

I went to the No Doubt concert recently and Gwen Stefani had similar boots in white. Ever since the I've been searching for a similar pair.. Thanks for posting this!

I came here, I asked if there were any new boot candidates...and then you had to go ahead and FIND those on shopbob. Now, I'm over $400 less rich. My husband doesn't thank you. :)

...but I do...

Ann - Tell your hubby I'm sorry! Haha. I'm glad I was able to help. Enjoy the boots!!

There's a similar pair made by L.A.M.B. that sold through Shopbop. They're available in black, as well as white and might be the boots that a previous commenter saw at the No Doubt concert.

Thanks for the tip on the Chocolat Blu boots! Love!
