I guess we shouldn’t be surprised anymore by how quickly Jeffrey Campbell churns out copies of popular shoe styles, but the ones we’re featuring today were out amazingly fast even for JC. Its versions of the cowboy-inspired Isabel Marant fall 2012 boots were available even before the Isabel Marants themselves were!
The first celebrity to make a splash in the Isabel Marant boots was Alessandra Ambrosio. With her enviable mile-long legs and those boots in a shocking red, she got heads turning, eyes staring, and bloggers like us writing.
Since Alessandra was seen in those boots, more pairs from the Isabel Marant fall 2012 collection have made their way from the runway to the streets. So far, we’ve seen Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kate Moss, Katie Holmes, and Halle Berry, and the list is continuously getting longer.
Alessandra Ambrosio shopping at Kitson in L.A. on July 19, 2012; Kate Moss shopping for a DVD and popcorn in London, England on October 23, 2012; Halle Berry at the Axel Springer AG building in Berlin, Germany on November 4, 2012
Below are three of the most popular (or most seen on celebrities) boots from the Isabel Marant fall 2012 collection. Right underneath each one is the Jeffrey Campbell copy. They’re obviously not exact copies, but the “look” is there.
Isabel Marant “Milwaukee” vs. Jeffrey Campbell “Volpe”
Isabel Marant “Milwaukee” Boots, $1,490
Jeffrey Campbell “Volpe” Booties, $279.95 to $299.99 (before: $319.95)

What do you think? Are these enough to satisfy one’s Isabel Marant craving, or is Jeffrey Campbell charging too much for copies that changed many things from the original?
