Does anyone else out there have an obsession with Frye boots? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pair that I didn’t like. There’s only one problem – the price tag. I have been lusting after a pair of Frye Melissa Button Riding boots for awhile now. They have them in that “perfect” shade of brown that I NEED/WANT.  But with a $328 price tag, I am a little reluctant to bite the bullet and buy them. I try to justify this as an investment, I mean really Frye Boots are the best and will last. I own two pairs and absolutely LOVE them. Christmas is right around the corner and it is my birthday too. Hmmm,  anyway…I stumbled upon a more affordable option for anyone who is looking for a pair of boots that are Frye (ish) without the high price tag!!

Tar-jay (Target) has a pair of black riding boots called the Kasia Boot that are almost identical to the Frye Melissa Button boot!!! I WISH they had them in the “perfect” shade of brown that I want! I know the quality is not going to be the best, but we are not comparing apples to apples. The look, however, is definitely the same! I personally would rather save for the Frye’s but these are a close second!




The Frye ones look nicer and will definitely last  longer, but Target’s Kasia version is easier on the budget  with the $70 price tag.
Which pair would you pick – splurge or steal?
