Shopping for shoes online can be a precarious activity for fashion lovers, especially when footwear designs have been elevated to a level where it becomes difficult to tell the difference between something that’s been mass produced versus a limited edition luxury item. Take, for example, this ankle boot by Zara; it’s super cute and looks expensive, but if you were to look at its price tag you would snap it up in a heart beat.

Why I chose this shoe: I have a very health love for leather in all shapes and forms; it’s always appealed to me because of its look, feel and subtle bad girl undertones. However, nowadays companies are using high quality synthetic leather (aka: polyurethane) in clothes and shoes that it mimics the characteristics of real leather leading it to be virtually impossible to tell the difference between the two. This ankle boot from Zara isn’t made from patent leather but it’s design and price tag (listed at $99.90) is virtually irresistible! Buy online.
