Viktor & Rolf black button-up Victoriana ankle boots, £580
This is the second pair of Viktor & Rolf shoes to impress me recently, which just goes to show that you should never write off any brand: there’s hope for them all!
Actually, these boots have more than impressed me. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for boots which button up like this: they have a slightly gothic/Victoriana feel to them, which is dark, but very elegant, and makes me want to dress up in lots of flowing velvet, which is most unlike me. Even if you don’t want to go all-out with the Gothic Glam look, however, these boots would be easy enough to incorporate into your existing winter wardrobe, and will look good with tights or jeans. Just watch out for that 5.3″ heel…
They are amazing. I love them. I do not love the height.
