Honestly, how can you not be in love with these boots? They are to die for. Lately I've been paying much closer attention to heeled boots and heels in general (I must think that because I've conquered the riding boot heel, I am now invincible in platforms and wedges). These boots debut at the S/S 2011 RAFW Friend of Mine show and I just can't get enough of them. Loving the grey/ taupe suede ones complete with the signature Friend of Mine metal hardware, this season in the form of a eagle's talon wrapping around the heel. I've really started to appreciate the platform/ heeled boot as not just a shoe for the winter seasons (yes it keeps my feet warm and dry in the cold rainy weather) but also to team with shorts, skirts and dresses in the summer. Friend of Mine paraded these with silks and flowy, draped material and it looks nothing short of amazing. No doubt I'll be incorporating boots into my summer wardrobe.
The current style on sale on the online store are the Raffaello boots which are equally as stunning with a western flavour and engraved hardware detail. These boots are going for $440RRP, so I'm guessing the talon ones will be roughly the same price. Cannot wait for them to hit the shelves!
