WInter is here. Life remains casual. The stores are full of all kinds of sneakers and boots this season. It is sort of hard to find shoes. Designers want you to put your boots on the ground this season. One question as to how to make fall looks stand out is simple. Chosing an interesting pair of boots is not such a bad idea.. There are so many different kinds available. Included are also a few other hints of what’s to come later this season and in the spring. Why not come on a tour of some of the stores in the New York. Let’s explore how to put your boots on the ground.
Bottega Veneta offers different looks. The colorful souls are certainly fun, or you could go for their rubber boot, a corner of which is pictured at the top left.
Chanel has a cosier take on winter boots with a sock cuff and the signature quilted and toe logo. Discretely say you are wearing Chanel.
Valentino votes for chunky boots too. Even the Rockstud gets a little heftier.
Miu Miu offers a seriously punk inspired boot, and even the chunky loafers are super-soled.
Vuitton is a bit more discrete, offring a tonal printed logo with a twist-like metal closure.
Chanel adds some chunky soles, and offers a pop of color. Black is great, but sometimes enough is enough.
Guccii has a bit flashier pair of boots that Vuitton, but the double logo seems to be a trend.
These fancy take on a combat boot from Vivier uses their signature rhinestone buckle to good effect.
And Moon Boots are the new designer look. Chloe teamed up with Moon Boot to do a very special , and obviously, more expensive version.
Isabel Marant goes moony too with this white technical fabric pair.
Valentino likes the moon effect too. These might be a bit easier to walk in.
Fuzzy takes on fall boots are a hit this year. Miu Miu likes these for aprez-ski. And if you don’t ski, just use them for a cosy feel.
Chanel adds their logo C’s in shearling to these sensible winter boots.
Roger Vivier does shearling too. The rhinestone buckle takes these boots out of Ugg territory.
Are you in to really snuggly? These down filled booties from Louis Vuitton will do the trick. And you can comfortably put your boots on the ground.
Fendi offers this sophisticated pair of lace-ups in winter white. These look very new and definately not clunky. The embossed logo is subtle.
Christian Louboutin chimes in with color too. These graceful boots come in pink, as well as a soft blue shade.
The LV Territory boot comes in red and a pale pink. The leather is given a rubberized treatment, The look of leather as plastic is intriguing, the dipped in color effect.
Also new on the horizon are Prada’s patterned platform boots. This is a trend to watch, as more and more designers are adding platforms to their collections.
Chloe’s sock boot also has a slight platform. The lighter color is nice too. The fall collection had a lot of neutrals in all categories.
There are some dressy boots this year. Dolce Gabbana does their initials as heels. Is it good luck for people to walk on your name?
Clogs are back this season. Hermes is sold out of their buckled designs, but some are still available from Gucci.
And Dolce Gabbana does platform clogswith their logo wedged in.
And Gucci also does a 70’s stripe strapped clog. Easier to walk in than a regular clog. And warmer with the fur lining.
Fendi does metal logo heels too with this pair of fuzzy slip-ons. The stylized F heel offers a bouncy walk.
St. Laurent revives the platform sandal in a print. Will you get these now, or wait for spring?
Balenciaga may have the last word in new pumps. Something that is sorely lacking this season. Boots are great, but nothing works better than a well cut pump.
