Okay, I'm torn. I mostly wear skinny jeans (not really a boots with skirts/dresses kind of gal). I'm over 40, but I look and dress young, a little edgy and casual.

The first is Jimmy Choo Youth biker (2 buckles), followed by Fiorentini Baker Eli (one buckle).

And... photos of both in action:

The Jimmy Choos are about $895, while the FB's are about $535. They're both really comfy.

JC!
I have the taller style & the leather is heavenly. (I've warn them so often the last couple years my husband insisted I buy more (different) boots. They are just my go-to from Sept - May!)

The tips are actually pretty similar, despite the photos. I wish I could try them both in the same store. So far I have purchased (but not worn) the FB, and I'm gong to take them to a store that has the JC today or tomorrow. I wish they were the same price, as money is an issue right now. The JC's leather is a teency bit "dressier," while the FB leather is a bit more casual. Gold buckles on the JC are also shiny, where the FB is matte and more subtle.

Those who have the JC's - I have only been able to find a 38 to try at Nordstrom, and it felt a tad big. I'm wondering if I could take a 37.5. Did yours run big? Did they stretch?

And is one "younger" than the other?

I need more votes!
