The Lucky Brand Bambi boot is a very welcome addition to the women’s boot styles lineup for 2011. It is made from leather for the upper, synthetic material heel and outsole. The footbed is lightly padded for comfort. But the style! This boot is definitely an eye catcher with its harness around the ankle and shorter style, and is quite a bit more affordable than other similar styles. This boot I predict will be quite a hit for the fall and winter of 2011 and beyond. It is available in a couple of warm rich colors, with a retail price of around $140.
For those ladies who are considering purchasing this boot, but still have an inclination to do a bit of additional browsing, here are some similar boot styles to check over:
Born Jailyn Boot:
The Born Jailyn ankle boot is a lovely specimen as well this year. Crafted from gorgeous leather, a bit of a higher and quite feminine heel with a gorgeous buckled strap around the ankle that gives it a similar look to the Bambi. At this point it is available in Black, Dark Brown and Grey versions and has a retail price of around $195.
Frye Carson Shortie Boot:
The Frye Carson Shortie boot has become one of the most loved western style booties over the past couple of years, and is one of the more coveted boots in general from Frye. It is a gorgeous soft western style with pull straps on the shaft to make them super easy-on. Soft, beautiful leather craftsmanship, one of the finest boots a lady can own. While this boot does not bear a harness like the Bambi boot, its style is similar nevertheless. Available in quite a range of different soft, rich and even vivid bright colors and has a retail price of around $320.
Frye Carmen Harness Short Boot:
For any western lovin’ gal, the Carmen Harness boot from Frye is rather hard to resist. It has a tough and rugged look combined with unmistakable femininity, with a gorgeous studded harness around the ankle and with a cut that is much like the Lucky Brand Bambi. The Carmen comes in several dark and rich colors and has a retail price of around $300.
While the Lucky Brand Bambi boot appears to be an excellent choice in footwear fashion this year, the additional similar styles above are also good choices, most have already stood the test of time.
