Spot the Real: Frye Melissa Button Boot

One of the boots below costs nearly 5 times as much as the other. Both are genuine leather, although the designer boots are certainly better quality, the budget brand won't let you down. Can you spot the real from the steal? Click either image to find out!

This find gives me a huge case of the smiles! I've been coveting Melissa Frye boots for months. Yay for Target!

I bought a pair of suede boots at Target and have been very happy with them.

The last pair of Frye shoes I tried on were so stiff, it was going to be months before they didn't tear my feet up. Why not buy something you can wear comfortably from day one? If they don't last 20 years I won't care.

This is the first time I've been absolutely sure about right off the bat, probably because I am soooo in love with Frye...I could tell by how smooth and sleek it looks!

this is the first time i COULDN'T tell pretty easily. i was pretty shocked that those were from target. great find, bb. i am looking for a pair of real leather boots for under $100. these might fit the bill. target also has another style in taupe for $10 less that i might like even better.
