Remember when we told you about Alexander Wang's sublimely sexy Martha cutout leather knee boot? We compared it to a strinkingly similar version from Jeffrey Campbell, aka the Devandra shoe. Well, now we're hear to let you know that Wang's much more pricey take on the cut out boot trend is a little bit more affordable, thanks to our friends at Nordstrom. The department's store semi annual sale designer clearance is blowing us away, and we couldn't help but notice that Wang show we lusted over a month ago is going for a few hundreds less than its original price of $1,200. If you've been holding off on taking these beauties home with you, reward your patience and snag them now. Okay, fine, so they're still not cheap (and it still stands that Campbell's version is a comparative steal,) but they're still pretty amazing, don't you think?
