The silhouette and style of these boots are the things that really do it for me. There’s something almost rugged about their design. The heel is pretty short at 2 and ½ inches, and it is stacked and tapered as well. Something about that is almost – but not quite – like a cowboy boot. Along each side, the boots feature leather piping. They have a crescent style toe and a zipper closure that runs the full length of the shaft.
Giuseppe Zanotti does beautifully with bold things. The ideas may be outlandish and over-the-top, but the execution is so exquisite that what could be campy just looks chic – even when it shouldn’t. Now, honestly, I do wonder when you could wear these. Out on the town, sure, but where else? What do you guys think? Would you ever wear boots like these? Where would they work?
