Vintage Versace studded boots inspire Chloe Susan boots?

Remember those Chloe Susan boots that everyone went loopy for a couple of years ago? Yeah? Well feast your eyes on these bad boys.

These Versace Couture boots from the 80s are currently available on eBay, and while I’m not suggesting anyone copied anyone else… there is a hint of similarity between the two. Ahem.

The pristine boots feature all the usual Versace bells and whistles – Medusas, gold bits, buckles. All that snazz. The seller says they were featured in the catwalk show and couture catalogues, but were not actually ever available for sale.

Of course there is the possibility that these are some kind of insane fake, that someone knocked up after the Chloe boots were everywhere… but they got confused and put a Versace label on…? Nah, doesn’t quite ring true, does it?

Only two problems with these; they’re a men’s size 12, and they’re $2,499.

Thanks to Twitter pal Jessica for spotting these… and all the other insane vintage Versace she has been torturing me with.
