Shoesday Tuesday: Combat Cool
Jessie Ajluni | Tuesday August 15th 2017
While working on our Shoesday Tuesday posts over the past couple weeks, I’ve started noticing a trend with our edits. First it was 3.1 Phillip Lim’s pearl perfection boots accumulating into last weeks Michael Kors lovely metallic stunners. It would appear that we have been on a major combat boot kick! Now, as my style has evolved over the years I have gone from wearing sky high heels to cooler than cool ballet flats but this particular style has never before managed to make its way into my wardrobe. They always felt a little too tom boyish and gritty for my usual aesthetic. Wanting to research into this fashion phenomenon I began to research unconventional combat boots and had a major fashion epiphany.
Long gone are the grubby, military style boots of my high school days and in their place are a mix of elevated pieces made with luxurious textures and embellishments like velvet, mink and crystals. Designers are taking this once menswear staple and making it all for the ladies with these ingenious styles.
From Miu Miu’s embroidered crystal confection to the floral print beauties of Madden Girl there is a little something for everyone at every price point. So check out our round up below and share with use your favorite for these soldierly styles.
