WELL I never!
Despite TOPSHOP phasing out their boots for the arrival of the Spring/Summer 08, I found the (below) horrendously similar pair of Vivienne’s signature Pirate Boots on the TOPSHOP website a few days ago…
-Side Buckle Boot in Taupe, TOPSHOP.com, £85.00
-Original Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boots, £295.00
I spoke to my manager and we don’t anticipate getting these boots in-store now, since we haven’t had any deliveries of boots for a good few weeks now – but in saying that we’ve said we wouldn’t get the SINNITA shoes back in (in the OFF WHITE), yet in my delivery yesterday were 17 pairs no less! The day previous, we received the below, ‘Dove Grey’ version, which have sold really quickly already. So who knows, these stores may be available in your local store, luck you if they are! If you do manage to get a pair from Topshop, you’ll find a massive saving of, £210!! Not bad for doing abit of research eh? ;o See more info in my previous post, Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boots.
-Dove Grey colour SINNITA’s, £65.
You can purchase the Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boots from both instore and online at http://www.hervia.com.
