The Look for Less. A Whole Lot Less.

We've always thought the croc-embossed rubber wellies by Jimmy Choo for Hunter were chic.  But the $450 price tag made them a bit out of our league.

Enter Project Runway's biggest success story, Christian Siriano, and his latest design for Payless Shoes.  Priced at a cool $49.99. 

Without a doubt, the Hunter version is cuter.  And we are the first to admit we aren't big fans of knock-offs.  But when it comes to rubber rain boots that we wear only a handful of times per year, maybe we would make an exception...  The Payless version isn't available online, but check out your local Payless store. I might be hunting down a pair in Charlotte today!

I have (and love) my Hunters and I'm weary of buying a cheaper version - will they be waterproof? - but these Payless croc versions are fantastic! I might just have to check them out.

I just spotted some of these similar looking croc rainboots a few days ago. I spotted these boots on Charlotte-Russe online (only $35.50)
