OK, so I have to admit that I’m still a little confused as to the usefulness of glitter-encrusted boots. I suspect the problems stems from the fact that I’ve never really seen boots as “dress” shoes: I’d reach for a pair of fancy shoes long before I’d go for even the sparkliest of boots, but I guess that’s just me: there are definitely enough examples of this style around right now to convince me that I’m in the minority, and that this year’s party season will be full of beautiful boots. What do you think?
Topshop’s ‘Amethyst’ boots are the latest incarnation of the style, and the streamlined shape makes me more likely to wear these than some of their chunkier sisters. The multi-glitter upper also helps, because the dark colour is a little more subtle than some we’ve seen, although I don’t think “subtle” is a word you can really apply to glittery boots, do you?
