Not to say that the Nine West pair didn't possess quality or style. (Vince Camuto co-founded the Nine West Group in 1978) The Nine West were a good pair of boots as well but I think it was a better investment to purchase these because I plan on wearing them often this year. The price met value for this purchase.
The purchase felt very special to me because when I opened the box, I read this message that Vince Camuto puts in all the boxes of his shoes: "I'm passionate about creating a product that women really want... infusing great style, comfort and unparalleled value, for every stage of her life." This message alone increased the value because it's as if he puts a guarantee on his merchandise.
