My holy grail: Isabel Marant Dana boots

I did a blog post on the 19th of December (2011) pleading for assistance in finding the Isabel Marant Dana boots.  It was a desperate last attempt and I have to say a successful one!  Note to self, be desperate online more often...

I would like to thank all the lovely ladies that posted comments and emailed me directly, offering tips and solutions, trying to assist me solve my purchasing dilemma. It was so nice of you all to the take the time to help out a fellow shopper in 'crisis' and I cannot express to you just how grateful I am.  And last but not least, a huge thank you has to go out to A├»ssa who actually found my most lusted after item in the black suede for me on Vestiairedecopines. 

The boots have finally arrived and are where they belong, nestling nicely in my shoe closet.  Here is a sneak peak of my beauties although I'm sure they will be prominently featured in the future in outfit posts.  'My' boots... in 'my' shoe closet... now that has a nice ring to it.

    2. Hi, Mine are a size 36. Sorry I won't part with them. I searched for years for these but size 36 is particulary rare. I found them after some help from a lovely reader on this site which is similar to ebay. Check it out as they get quite a lot of them on there uk.vestiairedecopines.com

    1. Hi there, Yes they are very comfortable to wear. The cone heel means that the heel is stable and easy to walk in. I can wear these all day with no problems at all. I hope you get a pair from the new collection they are really gorgeous. Which ones are you looking at or haven't decided yet? x

    2. Thank you ! A very difficult choice!! I hesitate : the 90MM JACOB FRINGED SUEDE WEDGE BOOTS or 120MM STUDDED SUEDE AND LEATHER BOOTS

    3. Ha ha... There is always more than one option isn't there! Good luck deciding. That's a difficult choice.

  12. HI Mandi -

    These boots are amazing!! congrats. Do you find they are true to size? I wear a FR39 in the Manly Fringed boots - but I read online that the Dana/Bardu run small. Now I'm wondering if I'd actually be a FR40?

    thanks so much! you're always so helpful!!

    1. Hi Emma, They are fantastic boots (my favourite). I've got them in size 36 (all my IM shoes are 36) so I've found them to fit the same as all my others. Unfortunately I have never tried on the Manly fringed boots so I can't compare. For example my Bekkets, Willows and Bobby sneakers are all 36, my Dicker, Chili and Dana boots are all 36. I hope that helps :)

  13. thanks, M!

    They are now my holy grail boot! They really are amazing. I didn't buy them when they were available (foolishly!) because I had decided to buy the Manlys instead. I almost bought the Sailors this season but in the end the python print just wasn't for me. I will keep an eye out on Vestiare and maybe I'll get lucky like you did!

    thx so much! e

    1. Vestiare is amazing and you will probably pick them up cheaper there too. They come up more often on that site as well. I definitely agree going for the plain suede. You won't get over them then :) On the upside you have teh Manlys! Very nice.
