Cutout

Update: This post has been updated on November 28, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

Writing up a post about these “Ceinture” buckled boots by Balenciaga is a tough one for me. Why? Well, mainly because I don’t find myself very attracted to this type of masculine biker boots. Nor am I tall or skinny enough to pull off such a bulky boot. However, since these boots have been making the rounds on a number of style blogs and celebs lately, here you go with a couple of budget-friendly alternatives.

I feel so sorry for shoeaholics of times gone by. If only they could have lived to see the unparalleled creativity of shoe design today. Never before in history have there been so many truly unique, funky hybrids, like the Cut-Out Boots by Maison Martin Margiela. What a belle of a boot! Part demure d’Orsay, part go-go boot. This is a pair that was made for walkin’. I wish they’d walk right on up to my front door.

Matiko “Kiari” Boots

Like most shoe addicts, when I see a pair like the MMMs above that are as much art form as they are shoe, and I can’t have them, I feel a little pang of despair. Then I remember that it is a consumer’s world, and there is almost always a replica to be had. Like the Matiko “Kiari” Boots. Not a d’Orsay like the MMMs, but, whoa—they are some serious statement-makers. Get ’em ‘fore they go, ladies!
