Two winters ago we fell en masse for the 70’s style boots. Round or square nose, thick solid heel and preferable a soft suede kind of leather. Looked great with any kind of vintage cropped jeans or culottes. Last season we were still with one foot in the Seventies but now we’re officially moving on. Besides the scrunchy also spandex and stilettos are officially back on track… hello 80’s and thank you Balenciaga.

The Knife boots

They were introduced during the SS17 show and come in more colors this upcoming winter. There’s an over-the-knee, an ankle version and also pumps if you’re not much of a boot girl (or boy). For those who really want to go all the way, we suggest you save some money for the pantashoes. (What’s in a name… yes, it’s a pair of trousers and boots in one.)

The downside of creating a great item is of course that copies are around the corner. A certain chainstore already got a pretty similar flowered version in its collection this season. And we predict there are more to come… If you’re really into supporting fashion business and talented designers, we suggest you go for the real deal. Even though it’s quite an investment.
