It is difficult to argue with the obvious fact that due to the Russian winter frost and inclement slush, what is worn on our legs in the cold season becomes very important. And with the obvious fact that over-the-knee boots have become the favorite of this season, nevertheless, the shoes presented in the winter collections pleasantly please us with an unexpected variety. And even the most enthusiastic ladies understand perfectly well that boots are not good for all occasions.
The most traditional option remains the most common. Chanel, Cerruti, Calvin Klein, Alexander MacQueen, Marni and many other fashion houses today suggest quite classic respectable boots made of smooth leather in soothing tones - black, brown, dark beige, sand. By the way, they can be, by the way, not only monochromatic, but also consisting of several contrasting or similar in tone colors (as, for example, in Vivienne Westwood).
Moreover, their height is assumed almost to the knee, the height of the heel ranges from seven to ten centimeters, as well as its shape. In some cases it is a rather aggressive steel stiletto heel, but in general it is a fairly stable classic heel of a rather large diameter. By the way, it is believed that a heel with an excess of 10 centimeters in height becomes unstable and harmful to the leg. Therefore, especially advanced shoe makers, while increasing the height of the heel, simultaneously add a few centimeters of the platform on the sole.
If such classic boots seem a little boring to you against the background of a rare variety of modern fashion, make your choice in favor of unusually processed leather or interesting decor. Today, genuine leather is successfully dyed in gold and silver, embossed under the skin of a reptile, polished, artificially aged and wiped off, combined with woven blotches or suede. In addition, such shoes are very successfully stylized under retro trends (for example, from the sixties, patent leather shoes have come to us today).
The finishing of boots is also interesting and varied today. Chanel offers metal rivets and leather fringes, Calvin Klein - several rows of thin leather straps with metal buckles, LPerl - lacing in the most unexpected places, AlbertFerreti - fur trim (on both leather and suede boots). There are also interestingly designed boots in the patchwork style, in which the tops are assembled from pieces of multi-textured and multi-colored leather (Gaultier).
Retro trends are also manifested in the special form of boots, which can be found in almost all collections today. These are shoes with flat soles or very low heels and with a wide shaft up to mid-calf. Such boots were worn by elegant ladies in the sixties. They are offered today by Prada, Venis, Marc Jacobs, Celine, Mosquitos and many others. They, however, and boots, are good with colored leggings or thick opaque tights. Moreover, they are decorated with a variety of edging, inserts and bows.
At the same time, shoe designers offer boots that can be considered a diametrically opposite style. With the craze for elegance, femininity and classics, sports shoes have equal rights in the leading collections.
Moreover, sometimes it is sports in the truest sense of the word. Even the Chanel fashion house unexpectedly presented soft boots to the audience, almost literally quoting winter sports shoes. The resemblance of a puffy, colorful "ski shoe" (albeit set on the heel) can be seen in Pucci.
Quite unexpectedly, a designer reminder of: cycling sports boots burst into the winter season. They are quite elegant and undoubtedly very comfortable mid-calf boots and above (say, Gaultier has a length much higher than the knee) with a flat sole and lace-up throughout the length. Moreover, Ferre also adds suede straps with metal buckles to the lacing. And the lacing can be both in front and on the side.
A variant of semi-sports-semi-professional shoes is also offered. These are either rude flat-soled biker boots with metal rivets and numerous straps (Marc Jacobs), or the so-called chopper boots (Tod`s), or aviator's cropped boots in an openly militaristic style (Hogan, Prada). A distinctive feature of these models is textured and rough-looking leather, flat sole, wide and short bootleg.
Such a pronounced variety of boots this season speaks to which type of footwear the leading fashion houses have preferred today. No, their collection includes ankle boots, boots, and some kind of fur boots. But still, it is the boots that become almost an independent and bright part of the ladies' wardrobe this winter. They allow you to freshen up any boring business suit, draw attention to your legs, create wonderful sets with handbags and gloves. In addition, it is with the help of boots that we can embody the most interesting and current trends of the season - the passion for the sixties and eighties, sports style, eclecticism (for example, in a combination of transparent chiffon fabrics with biker boots), borrowings from men's fashion.The presence in the wardrobe of several different-style pairs of boots already gives room for your imagination and allows you to do without other large expenses for the embodiment of the most important trends of the season.
