Ballin’ On A Budget: Saint Laurent “Niki” Crystal Boots vs. Steve Madden “Crushing” Boots

There are quite a few designer items that many want to add to their wardrobe, but unfortunately the items are way out of their budget. There are many sites or stores that sell designer inspired items with great quality and at an affordable price. You can find inspired pieces from stores like H&M, Zara, ASOS, and Steve Madden. Be sure to also add EGO to your list of favorites!


If you desire to look fashionable, but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, check out today’s Balling On A Budget item.


The Saint Laurent Crystal “Niki” boots received a lot of positive feedback back in March when Rihanna was spotted wearing the boot just days after they made their debut on the runway. The badgal accessorized the boots with distressed jeans, a tee, and a leather jacket. The look was simple but stylish with help of the crystal boots.

The boots are simply stunning and of course extremely expensive. The boots are available for $10,000. The thigh-high boots feature a pointed tip and covered cone heel. They can be worn to the thigh or scrunched down like Riri.


If the boots are out of your price range, how about an inspired pair? A few days ago, I came across a  pair that are within many budgets from Steve Madden. The inspired boots features similar details. The boots features a sky-high heel, perfectly pointed toe, and rhinestone-covered surfaces.


I know many of us had our eyes on the Saint Laurent Boots but because they are out of our price range, you can purchase the similar pair for a fraction of the cost. The Steve Madden “Crushing” Boots are available for only $299. Definitely a steal that you don’t want to miss! You do not have to spend a lot of money to get a celebrity inspired look. You can look just as fabulous as they do on your budget.



Cardi B. also wore the boots during the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. The former Love and Hip Hop reality star paired the boots with a crystal Angel Brinks look. Dope right?
