Alexander Wang. Runway or DIY?

It's pretty undeniable that Alexander Wang has become a household name and one seriously rock star young designer. His latest show has plenty of new covet-ables, my favorites being the shoes and the bags. I can't help but notice the similarities in the heeled boots of the last photo looking remarkably like all the punk rock witch boots I used to wear. I've been searching for a pair rather desperately for over a year now. What do you like? How can you re-create this on a shoe string budget? I'm working on some DIY solutions myself...
