+1. Yet surprisingly some H&M boots received nearly the same number of thumbs up. Everyone seems to eat up the idea of chain stores offering their cheap goods with a designer's name attached. Remember all the fawning on here when the Uniqlo +J collection first came out?
If you like the CDiem S21 boots, the junhashimoto S21 boots are extremely similar and readily available. Only difference I can see is a variation in the shape of the toe box. Looking from the overhead view the carpe appear to flare outward more on the sides than jun. But looking from the side view the jun toe seems to curve upward more.
The jun heavy waxed horse leather is so thick and strong that it feels like it'll last forever. I have not seen the H&M boots, but I'd be willing to bet they're intended to be thrown away when worn out, similar to a pair of sneakers.
