Autumn is right around the corner, so it comes as no surprise that we’ve started thinking about boots.
One of the most popular styles for AW21 is, of course, Bottega Veneta’s lug boots. They’re the perfect mix of the chelsea style and lug soles — utilitarian but still chic.
They’re also versatile to style and look classic, which means you can wear them for years.
They’re definitely worth the investment at £845 if you can take them through multiple autumns and winters. So if you’re interested, you can pick up a pair below!

However I know that we don’t all have hundreds to spend on a pair of boots. The good thing is that there are lots of styles on the market that look almost identical to Bottega’s signature pair.
The high street as well as independent and mid-range designers have taken a leaf out of the designer’s book, with a huge selection of lug sole styles to choose from.
ASOS is always a reliable destination for trend-led pieces that don’t break the bank. For those searching for a pair with a similar style to Bottega Veneta’s, the e-tailer has a pair with the same look but with fun transparent heels.
Ego also have a pair that are unbelievably similar, with contrast stitch detailing and quilted uppers.
If you want a pair that are spot on, Dune’s look incredibly alike (if not exactly the same) as those from the Italian fashion house.
There are lots more. I was looking for dupes and found so many, which I’m sharing with you here.
