Splurge vs. Steal: Valentino Rockstud Rain Boots

Splurge vs. Steal: Valentino Rockstud Rain Boots

While I was getting my hair done last week at the salon, I glanced down at the feet of the girl sitting next to me and spied a glossy black pair of authentic Valentino Rockstud rain boots. It was a gray rainy day (of course it would rain the one day I'm getting a blow-out) and those boots really stood out! I started hunting for a look for less, and found a near identical dupe at Nasty Gal. Rain boots aren't just for springtime, and they don't have to be an afterthought in your closet or something that ruins an otherwise chic outfit. If you want rain boots with a stylish edge, check out these two finds:

Splurge: Valentino Rockstud Rain Boots, $425 at JILDORSHOES.COM
Steal: "Reagan" Stud Rain Boots, $65 at NASTYGAL.COM
In love with these boots!!!

I love chic options for fashionistas who can't justify the "label."

Thank you SO much for this. I know it's 5 years later, but I just recently found myself in need in need of rain boots for the first time in my life. I searched all over for bad ass looking ones and couldn't find these for sale anywhere. Until your post ... I googled the name of the "steal" ones and was able to find a pair on Amazon! You rock!! Thank you!!
