    Hi all, can anyone recommend any alternatives to Saint Laurent's Wyatt (30 or 40) boots? Saint Laurent's price is a bit hard to swallow...

    Those don't look as "fitted"? as the YSL ones... I don't know if fitted is the right word, but the ankle part of the Wyatt looks skinnier. The heel is higher too.

    The only designer that makes a skinny silhouette chelsea boot like the Saint Laurent ones is just Saint Laurent. There are plenty of brands out there that make chelseas but none can touch the shape or quality of SLP.

    Try Story et Fall, it's the brand most people go to when looking for a cheaper SLP boot. They are higher quality too, probably, at least in terms of construction (I think most SLP boots are blake stitched with a fake welt whereas SeF has goodyear welted models, not sure about the chelseas, though).

    And if you completely disregard quality and are just looking for a very cheap alternative, then Topman, for around $100 the boots don't look too bad and they're at least real suede with leather lining, it seems. Haven't seen them in person.

    John Lobb might disagree with you.
