Isabel Marant Dicker Alternative Review

I've always been a firm believer in splashing out for shoes and bags more than clothes. Expensive designer products equates to quality, right? Well.....that was until I happened  to stumble upon these Isabel Marant Dicker lookalikes for £65. Yup. That's nearly £300 knocked off its very hefty price tag. As always, I was late to the game. There were none in my size online. After placing half a dozen of calls to various Topshop stores, I conceded defeat.

Unbeknownst to me, Sue, my Perseverance Panda buddy (if you're a mom with primary school kids, you'll be familiar with this term) was undeterred. She called her closest Topshop store. And called. And called. And called until she managed to track down a human and reserved a pair in my size. She then drove over to the store and carefully inspect the boots until she was satisfied with the quality (it's a BIG deal if Sue gives her stamp of approval) before shipping them to me.

Just so you know......the boots were made in Spain. Bloody fantastic quality for £65. Sure, the lining isn't as refined as the Isabel Marant Dickers but overall, they're incredibly well made. A word of advice - size up because they run small and are slightly narrower (which I prefer). They're beyond comfortable and I can run in them (the usual story....running for the tube/bus/train).

  1. You're most welcome! And it's always good to put out a plea because you never know who's reading! I have to admit I was very impressed with them ... I was tempted myself but talked myself out of it ... they're not on my list. Now if they were in beige/taupe ... then we're talking!

  4. Wow, Sue, she is a good friend to have! That's so sweet of her to go to so much trouble to help you find a pair of these boots. I'm glad to hear that they lived up to your expectations. How soft is the leather? For me that's the most important bit. They look a little stiffer or sturdier than the Dickers although I suppose that probably isn't a terrible thing!

    1. It's actually pretty soft. I had to return a pair of boots recently because the leather was so stiff and was scraping on my skin. You're right. They're stiffer than the Dickers which I love because the boots grip my feet better. I have pretty weak ankles thanks to multiple sports injuries so the extra support has been a godsend.
