Okay, so these aren’t perfect – but I bet they had you fooled and still have you staring at them trying to work them out in your mind!
The boots were actually bought for $40 on eBay from a seller the Far East. they were a basic boot, similar (but not identical) to the ones shown below.
The buyer then employed a leather worker to slice the top inch off the ankle of the boots, and add the contrasting brown band to build the boots back up to the right height and style.
For that price you can’t go wrong – especially when you are getting a boot that is a dead ringer for the real deal.
Very inventive, and well done I say!
All Saints boots on eBay
If you don’t have the contacts to do this type of modifications yourself, you can always begrudgingly head back to eBay, where a pair of genuine All Saints Layer Boots have just been listed.
They currently have a 99p starting price, but I don’t think that will last for very long.
All Saints | Black/Choc Layer Boot | 10/44 | Vintage Item | As worn by MATT SMITH as the 11th DOCTOR WHOI must say the boots have gone a curious brown colour. The pair I own are still a true black, so I can’t immediately see why these have changed so dramatically.
UK SIZE 10- US SIZE 11 - EUROPEAN SIZE 44
Boots are supplied in ORIGINAL All Saints box.
The boots are in a good worn condition as you can see from the photos the boots have turned a darker brown due to the natural finish of the leather. These boots are stylish and practical and are a fantastic vintage addition to any wardrobe and outfit.
I am happy to upload more photographs for serious bidders.

I don't suppose any more specifics could be posted about the boot used? The boot shown has a zipper which could be problematic. Also, the stitching is a little off. I usually wouldn't be so pedantic, but 80 is still a lot for a uni student :PReplyDelete
