The Shoe Project: Can’t afford the Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boots??? Alas, A Cheaper Solution!

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,, £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

    I bought the black Topshop version which were on sale for £20, i totally love them it was only about two weeks later i saw the Westwood boots. There so great to wear and even though I love the Westwood boots theres no way in hell i could ever afford them, good to see the Topshop version isnt a blatant rip-off.

    You have to admit though, it’s very obvious that topshop have just ripped off a classic Westwood design. If I saw someone in the topshop version I would think they were just high streets attempt on a designer must have. I have real Westwood pirate boots in black leather, and while I admit they cost loads, they are worth saving up for as I did. You can wear them with everything ang they hold their value should you ever need to sell them!
