Autumn is coming fast upon us, so it’s time to start thinking about one of my favourite subjects: boots.
The shoe-boot is, of course, the ultimate turn-to shoe as the colder months draw in, and a peep-toe will make the transition from sandal to boot a little easier.
Gucci’s suede and patent open-toe booties are, therefore, a key contender for first place on my AW11 shoe wish-list.
What I adore about these shoe-boots is their effortless texture mash-up. Black suede works as the key material for these shoes, while a tonal patent heel and ankle support sings against its leather cousin.
Together, their juxtaposition makes for one effortlessly luxe booty (as does the in-built platform and zip closure – I love a stylish zip closure).
At £539, these would have to be seen as a real investment, but you can rest assured that a pair of classic shoe-boots like this would work as your turn-to shoe autumn after autumn.
