|Madden Girl Raszcal Boot|
Why: The reason I was so happy to see the Raszcal is that quite a number of women are making noise about the Banddit, but as it turns out, not as many women are able to afford the price - the Raszcal is more within financial reach for those ladies who might be a bit more on a budget - $79.95 vs. $169.95 retail price.
|Steve Madden Banddit Boot|
Unique fashion company: The Steve Madden company is unique not only in its fashion-forward styles (often leading the pack with other companies copying its styles), but in its recognition that when styles are released that cater to a younger, more fashion-conscious crowd, that often those younger women are not as easily able to afford the higher price tag. On a number of those styles they will create a version (in the Madden Girl line) that are more affordable. (Thoughtful!)
No matter which boot you might prefer - the Steve Madden Banddit or the Madden Girl Raszcal - the unique style of the below-the-knee-wrap-around-and-buckle strap will be drawing some attention your way.
