A dupe for the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots

*Update* These boots are now sold out but I found several identical dupes for less: under $60, under $125, under $200 and under $250 

The Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots became so popular and has been featured just about everywhere. Don't get me wrong, I think they're amazing but am not sure they're worth the price tag. I purchased the Quiltboot last year. After putting some thoughts into it, I decided to take them back. I don't know how I feel about wearing $700 boots in the snow. I really love the sleek design and am determined to find something similar at a lower price point.
Last year, I reviewed the Unisa Gilles which was super similar to the Stuart Weitzman 5050. I thought I would look there first. Lo and behold, Unisa came out with the Careana which is incredibly similar to the Lowland. I tried them on in store and immediately fell in love with them. For the price tag, they're fantastic. DSW had a $10 off $50 purchase coupon during Columbus Day weekend which made them even more affordable. They are also available in black and blue.

These boots appear and look more expensive in person than they actually cost. I have been wearing them non-stop for almost 2 weeks now and am in love with them even more. They're incredibly comfortable, easy to take on/off and fit like a glove right of the box. Plus, no break-in time required! They fit true to size (I took my usual size 7). The measurements are as follow: shaft height = 22" and calf circumference = 14". I am wearing them here with leggings and they fit with a little room to spare. They definitely fit tighter with a pair of skinny jeans.

The upper is made out of suede-like fabric and unlined. However, the fabric is thick enough that they don't feel flimsy. The foot-bed has just the right amount of padding to keep you comfortable while still maintaining the slim profile. I don't have anything negative to say about these boots. While searching, I found a couple of other options that are worth looking into. However, I am so in love with these Unisa boots that I have no desired to try anything else. If you end up trying these, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
