Ruggedly sexy walking boots: The next lust must have
"Woop-de-do" say the shoe police, because walking boots have inspired the next must-have footwear for the coming autumn/winter. Styled in suede, canvas and leather the key feature to the new style is corrugated, rubber soles. Dubbed ‘ruggedly sexy’ by Michael Kors they were a fixture of London Fashion Week. Models walked in tough-chic, walking-style boots, decorated with sheepskin, at Pringle, and in slightly more sophisticated, multi-buckled styles, at Burberry Prorsum. The latest “lust haves” are featured at the Milan Fashion Week and were seen in multi-colours, with technical lace-up details and ridged, rubber soles. Italian shoe company Tod’s, featured ruggedly sexy shoes in their autumn/winter collection. The flat shoe-boot styles have padded anklets, metal eyelets for secure fit, and ridged, rubber soles which make them ideal for walking. Well almost, because the range also comes in four-inch, stack-heeled, platform-rubber variations in metallic leather and suede.
