Review: Stuart Weitzman Lowland vs Merona Gisela over the knee boots

review comment

Review: Stuart Weitzmand vs Merona over-the-knee boots | see the full review at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Since posting about the Stuart Weitzman Lowland over-the-knee boots and other great finds at various price points, I received some e-mails about how some of the alternatives compare to the Stuart Weitzman boots.

I own the budget friendly version from Merona (“Gisela“) as well as the Lowlands themselves. At first look, it’s hard to tell apart the two boots. The Gisela is shorter in leg length, has a slightly pointier toe box, and the only other distinguishing feature is the zipper at the foot for ease of getting in and out of the boot. The Lowlands are made from real leather compared to the Gisela which is from man-made materials. Despite this, the Gisela doesn’t feel flimsy or look cheap.

Sole of Merona OTK boot

 

The Gisela boot has a shaft height of 19.5″, calf circumference 14″, and a heel height of 1.25″. It comes in two colors: black and grey. For comparison, the Lowland has a shaft height of 24″, calf circumference 13″, a heel height of 0.75″, and is available in 7 color options (eight, if you count the all leather version).

Thick sole of the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boot

 

The Gisela is definitely inspired by the Stuart Weitzman Lowland OTK boots and is a great lower price point alternative. Though it is only available in 2 colors, the colors allow you to wear it with just about anything! But, if you’re looking for a real suede boot, I truly love my Lowlands (consider it a holiday gift to yourself!).

Style: Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots & similar options starting at $39.99!

style trend comment

Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots and other wallet friendly options | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

There’s a good reason that the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots are once of the most popular choices this season. It has a low heel and is more of a riding boot style but also has the benefit of a leg-hugging over-the-knee style. These boots are an investment for your closet but how can you deny the stretchy suede and leather footbed and slip prevention with the rubber sole? If you’re new to over-the-knee boots and want to try out the style to see if it’s for you, or if you want options that are more budget friendly, look at the round up below which starts at $39.99!

ONE {$39.99!}

TWO {under $60}

THREE (save $50 off retail), {7 color choices here}

FOUR {comes in a rich burgundy color, too!}

FIVE {33% off!}

Save or splurge: shoe edition

save or splurge comment

Save or splurge: shoe edition | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

There are too many cute shoe options available right now that “need” to be in my closet right now for summer! I recently did a huge shoe purge including pairs that were well worn past their expiration, ill fitting ones, and ones that simply had been an impulse buy that never really saw the light of day. I’ve been trying to be mindful of what I replace and I’ve been lusting after a few styles! I’ve found a lot of good options for all budgets and thought I’d share them with you. Would love to hear which ones you add to your shoe collection!

SHOP THE LOOK:
