Think partly Mary Poppins, part dominatrix– that is the easiest way to describe the new Victorian- inspired boots that graced the Fall/Winter runway of Fendi. These aren’t your great- great- grandmother’s boots, no these vintage boots have color blocking (neon colors, no less) and leather laces that add a contemporary, sexy flavor to these shoes to make them edgy and youthful. I want a version of these shoes to wear with lacey dresses and leather jackets in the Fall and Winter seasons. These shoes are perfect for the woman who wants a laced-up boot, but doesn’t want a masculine combat or motorcycle boot. So, these boots are that perfect mix of femininity and modern edge.
What do you think of these boots? Do you think they are youthful and edgy, or just plain outdated?
