Introducing: The Downtown Boot, a charming take on the punk-rock trend. This is our edgiest made to measure boot style yet. In your choice of gold or silver, studding on the inner and outer leg and along the boot top trim pays homage to this season's loudest fashion moment. While you've always been able to colour block your Poppy Barley flats, adding colour-blocking options to our F/W '13 Flat Boots Collection means you can continue to create a look entirely your own—which is the essence of the punk-rock era.
But don't be afraid; how you choose to customize and style your studded boots drastically changes the message. It's all about your personality. Above, on our Polyvore board, we've chosen a Primary leather in Sand Grey, a secondary leather in Toffee, and Gold Studs. Pair these boots with a faux (or fo' real) fur vest, a sweater-dress, black tights, a cozy oxblood scarf, and a sleek leather-strap watch, and you're ready for a sophisticated autumn day-off.
Don't be afraid to go literal, either. Select The Downtown Boot in a full Essential Black for both your Primary and Secondary leathers, and accent the trim with Silver Studs. Styling your boots with a red plaid skirt, leather vest, simple tee and rocker-glam accessories says you’re all about authenticity. These studded boots are bold and confident, and this season, unapologetically trendy.
Above, we've chosen a Primary leather in our rich, red-hued Kaki, a secondary leather in Essential Black, and Gold hardware, and paired it with a cream, cable-knit sweater, classic blue jeans and a long, wool biker jacket with leather accents. This look is now just a "nod" to fashion's latest punk-rock obsession. But that's not all: these studded boots are handmade to your exact measurements to fit your unique calf size, shoe size, foot width and boot height. Your measurements don't have to stop you from getting the look you want.
