‘Good’ ankle boots by Carvela Kurt Geiger
I’ll just begin this post by quickly pointing out that “good” isn’t just my assessment of these boots: it’s their actual name. Pretty clever of Kurt Geiger/Carvela, huh?
A couple of weeks ago, I was in Glasgow for dinner, and as I walked back to the car, I passed what felt like tons of stores, all with silver ankle boots in their windows. (All of the stores were closed at the time, unfortunately, or I’d definitely have gone in for a closer look!) I’m guessing from this that silver boots are one of this spring’s trends (Er, can you tell I don’t follow fashion, here, and just go by whatever happens to be in the stores at any given time?), and while, on the one hand, spring seems like a bit of an odd time for boots to be popular, on the other hand, I guess our seasons have become so blended these days that a pair of ankle boots can be worn all year round – here in the UK, at least.
As for the ankle boots themselves, well, I absolutely love the shape of them, first of all. That narrow ankle is just so much more flattering than a wider one – especially if you’re wearing them with a skirt or dress – and the elegant shape is also a winner, in my eyes. The colours, meanwhile (these come in hot pink, as well as that shiny silver) are designed to attract as much attention as possible, and they definitely succeed on that front: the mirrored upper on the silver version is even more eye-catching in real life, and they also have that kind of futuristic feel that would make me want to put them on display, like a work of art, rather than simply wearing them!
