I love a great runway look. The theatre of it has such allure… until I try to incorporate the style into my everyday wardrobe. And, this fall is no exception. As I eye up otherworldly fashion spreads in my favorite glossies, I sigh.
For example, I recently read, “As seen on the runways of Paris and New York, boots have reached new heights. Not only are they covered in glittering adornments and fabrics, the silhouettes are also slumped and reach up to the knee and beyond, making them appear more like stage costumes than shoes that can be worn every day.”
Now, I adore a good slouchy boot. But, slouchy, over the knee, AND metallic altogether is just a bit too much for my daily life. After all, my days are certainly not spent strutting the catwalk, but on more mundane pursuits such as shopping, outdoor sporting events, and rambles in the park.
However, I did discover these great Whisper Boots from Hotter Shoes than allow me to enjoy the slouchy trend on a much more human scale. The simple styling of these boots gives them long-term appeal. But, the slouchy leather keeps them right on trend.
And, they are so comfortable! These boots feature dual fastening zips (easy on, easy off). Plus, they have a cozy faux fur lining to keep you well insulated as winter descends. And, there’s even a great flexible sole and sensible low heel which are perfect to wear as the weather turns foul.
You can choose real leather, suede or nubuck in a wide selection of hues from deep teal, to gunmetal gray, to navy, to ruby, plus more. (I chose Loden Green, shown. My new fave color for fall!) And, the Whisper Boots are available in women’s sizes 5-11. They even come in wide widths. Retail: $115.
In addition to the Whisper Boots, Hotter Shoes has a full line of shoes, boots, sandals, sneakers, and slippers for both men and women. Plus, there are now accessories galore including handbags of every shape and description, socks, and even scarves. A few of my personal top picks include the slouchy Mystery Boots, equestrian-inspired Belle Boots, and sexy snake and suede Vanity Boots.
