Gigi Hadid's Amazing Snakeskin Booties Are Made by a Surprisingly Affordable Brand
Supermodel Gigi Hadid may love a bargain as much as the rest of us.
Whether she’s stepping out in city streets or strutting down the runway, Gigi Hadid has incredible style that we're constantly swooning over. We usually can spot Gigi sporting luxury brands like Versace and Fendi from head-to-toe—but that wasn’t the case in a recent appearance during New York Fashion Week.
Yesterday, Hadid was photographed on the streets of New York wearing burgundy snakeskin ankle boots, and the shoes were definitely an unexpected choice for the A-list celebrity. Why, exactly? Because they’re made by the brand Mango and only cost about $65.
That’s right. You heard correctly. One of the world’s biggest supermodels was strutting her stuff in shoes that most women can actually afford. Ah, celebrities. They really are just like us (sometimes). But before you try to get your hands on a pair of these Gigi-approved boots, there’s a catch. The exact boots Gigi had on are only sold through Mango UK. I know, serious buzzkill.
Since we’re probably going to be seeing boots like this everywhere now, we scouted out some other great options that will make you instantly feel like the supermodel you are. [Insert “YAS. SASHAY QUEEN” here.]
Hopefully these suggestions help you find your perfect pair so you can kick off fall on the right foot.
1 Mango's Snake Leather Angle Boots
While we may not be able to get the exact boots Gigi’s rockin’, these Mango boots from the same brand are pretty similar and actually sold in the US. Plus, they have a block heel, so you won't need to pack your flip flops in your clutch for when your feet hurt. What? Don’t act like you’ve never done that.

2 Stuart Weitzman's Rapture Mid Calf Stretch Suede Booties
If you’re loving the style of Gigi’s boots but aren’t crazy about animal print, these Stuart Weitzman booties are the perfect alternative for fall. They have that updated '90s vibe everyone seems to be going for, and you can't go wrong with suede in autumn.

The Faviola Bootie by Geox are not only edgy, but they also have a patented tech sole that is durable, breathable and features a water-repellent membrane to keep feet dry and ventilated.

5 Saint Laurent's Lou Crackled Metallic Leather Mid-Heel Bootie
These super-hot Saint Laurent metallic booties may break the bank, but they’re worth the splurge. They remind me of modern-day Dorothy slippers with a Kinky Boots vibe. If you’re thinking about owning these Italian-made beauties, make sure to order half a size up because the brand's shoes run small.
