It’s no use: I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to get on board with the concept of lace boots. Lace-covered boots, sure. Boots made entirely out of lace, though, and with a fragile, would-fall-apart-in-a-heavy-shower look to them? They just seem so pointless to me. Maybe it’s just because another thing I can’t get on board with is the idea of boots as evening wear. I mean, these Valentino knee-highs obviously aren’t designed for trudging through the snow in – they’re very much “dress” boots – but my mind is hard-wired to make the connection that knee-high boots=cold weather + outdoor use. It would no more occur to me to wear knee-high boots to a party than it would occur to me to wear my coat indoors, so $1,295 lace boots are never going to make it onto my shopping list. (And thank God for that, I hear Shoeperman exclaim…)
What about you, though? What do think: shoeperheroes, or shoepervillains?
(For the record, I don’t really think they’re either, but I figured I may as well be dramatic about it…)
