Here’s Kim Kardashian, exiting Yogurtland, Kanye West in tow, wearing Givenchy’s €1,395 pre-fall 2012 boots. There are so many things that are wrong with this sentence, and that’s before I get to spending the price of a used car on a pair of boots. What is Kanye West doing in Yogurtland? What is Kanye West, who once at least gave the impression that he was quite cool, doing with Kim Kardashian? Honestly, I ask you.

In any case, if you want to get Kimmy’s shoe style on a bit of a budget, look no further than Zara, which has paid tribute to Givenchy with its €119 spat heel boot.

Personally, I would go so far as to say that I prefer Zara’s more wearable version. Sure, the Givenchy boots are interesting, and different, and undeniably cool – but Zara’s are sexy and wearable and not as “edgy” (read: difficult-to-wear).

Which do you prefer?
