I wish I could say the SW Lowland boots were in my price range, but that just isn't the case. However, I've done my due diligence and there are quite a few knock-off's out there. None I think that can do complete justice, but options nonetheless. I recently purchased these after carefully inspecting pictures and reading customer reviews and although I was hoping for a little more, they do get the job done. The fit is much better, and more snug over jeans but they do still look cute bare legged or in tights. Still, hitting the lottery could be nice.
