Target FTW: budget friendly sneaker dupe

By now, you may have come to realize that I love my sneakers. Of course for working out. But I’m speaking of the casual style variety. I’m so thankful for the sneaker trend that’s still going strong. The latest iteration that I find rather intriguing is the slip-on high top bootie sneakers. I first saw them in last July’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog, which featured the Vince Newlyn pair. I was hooked but I didn’t want to pay that much for a pair of sneakers, even at the Anniversary Sale price. They are really gorgeous though, it’s a great shade of grey. Here they are:

So, imagine my recent delight when I spied the same style on Target’s website. In two of my favorite colors: grey and leopard. Then, I see Target is running a buy one, get one at 50% off sale for shoes (no online promo code needed and free shipping for a minimum purchase of $25). And if you have a Target card, you know you’ll get an extra 5% off your total purchase. So, instead of spending $350 for a Vince pair, you can try out this trend for about $17 for a pair of Target sneakers (assuming you go for the BOGO deal). Here they are:

I like the grey flannel look to these, it’s a great neutral color and fall material.

Because I’m firmly in the leopard-is-a-neutral camp. These look like a party on your feet.

What do you think of this latest sneaker trend? Hope you liked my budget-friendly find. Have a great Thursday!
