We all listened when we heard Nancy Sinatra proclaim that ‘these boots are made for walking’, but that does not mean to say that we are going to be wearing any walking boots. No Sir, not if Gucci have anything to do with it.
The A/Wo8 footwear collection at Gucci is a 4.1” heeled, boot heaven and this year they have undoubtedly led the high street with their statement style, yet wearable designs.
The luxurious Russian Folklore theme which was explored through the detailed prints and bohemian embroidery down Gucci’s catwalk, is echoed in the tassled designs of the Devendra ankle booties which boast traditional Gucci crest ornaments from the fringed suede.
Furthermore, the inspired just-below-the-knee Babouska boots (though slightly too riddled with gold for my wearing), set off the Gucci fur coat and skinny trousers to perfection.
And how about the much sought after over-the-knee, low-heeled Devendra riding boot, perfect for those cold and rainy runaround days..?
The choice is endless. Of course, at over (and in many cases, lots over), $1000, we can’t all afford to go nabbing these babies. If – like us – however you are pining for your very own Devendra flats, head to Russell and Bromley where you can find an imitation suede design (complete with extensively long tassles) for £275.
