This is the inspiration for my flat boot purchase. Naturally, this pair is more expensive than my purchase (which totally justifies my buy...sweet!). I bet the leather is more and supple softer making this boot more comfortable than the one I purchased. This boot also has a side zip and a square toe unlike the one I purchased. I'd like to say that I prefer the round toe of the Dolce Vitas but I would have loved if they were side zip as well. The side zip almost always ensures a better fit. Oh well, I guess I can't have everything.
Do I regret not getting this boot? Not really. At a sale price of $945 on Net-A-Porter, this boot is a little to hard on my wallet. If you really want to splurge, this is a good deal considering it's still regular price at Barney's.
It's weird because I don't like flats (I need the extra height boost) and yet I am strangely drawn to flat boots (I own at least 5 pairs).
