spree v steal: chloe doc martens circa 2007

left: boots from nastygal ($198) and right rumi’s real chloe’s

i know i’m dragging this up from 2007, but i’m very surprised that these boots weren’t copied when the hype was there.
i recently came across these on nastygal, a website i rarely go to because it’s hugely overpriced and sucks people into fad trends.
i kinda like the smoother shape of the heel but i still wouldn’t pay the price for them. i wonder if they’ll make a reappearance on all of the fashion blogs once more…
