The solstice has arrived, and summer fashions are ablaze…especially for fall. So stomp your way into summer fun (but not into the pool!) with these luscious, sexy boots from Manolo Blahnik, Gianvito Rossi, Valentino and Pierre Hardy.
Let’s split ’em up and take ’em one by one.
What is it about visible zippers on long boots that make them so sexy and appealing?
These black suede, over-the-knee Gianvito Rossi originals feature silver-toned zippers at both the side and the back as well as a leather sole, suede-covered stiletto heel, and a (very!) lengthy 24.5” of height. Boots this tall and bold might connote “dominatrix” in some people’s minds; however, these double zips are more classy (“I’m the queen of the boardroom”) and less brutal (“I’m gonna stomp all over you.”)
These pull-on Pierre Hardy black spazzolato leather and suede point-toe boots also boast incredible craftsmanship and simple design. The shaft is 20”, and the heel is approximately 4.5”.
Which of these Italian made treasures will you wear to trounce into (and all over) summer? Check them out, and decide for yourself!
